Posted on June 22, 2015
Summer is a time for sunshine and laughter—when “kids can be kids” through play and TOYS! Here are a few play products just right for the season encouraging kids to explore and expand their bodies and minds:
Wooden play set kit that contains pre-cut lumber, two heavy duty swings, one ring/trapeze combo, rock climbing wall, Cool Wave Slide, monkey bars, metal rung ladder, one-bench picnic table, two safety handles, cloth canopy roof and all necessary hardware. The swing chains are rubber coated for comfort and safety. When built, this set has two upper level play decks and under deck play space. It can accommodate up to 12 children. Heavy-duty swings have a maximum weight of 350lbs. and Cool Wave Slide has a maximum weight of 250lbs.
Round, carnival-themed water table has five colorful balls that can ride the twirling Ferris wheel or float in the lazy river – powered by kids. A spiral tower in the middle adds interest and increases physical play. Other elements include water-squirting balls, funnel with spinning wheels and a cup to scoop and dump.
Fully inflatable jumper measures 9’x12’x6’ and has two mesh doors with hook and loop closures and an attached slide with inflatable guardrails. The unit has stakes to anchor it to the ground and inflates in about a minute with the included heavy-duty blower. Maximum number of children: 3; maximum height of individuals: 5’; maximum weight 275lbs.
Set of six plastic “river stones” in three different sizes and textures. Stepping stones are large enough to stand on and can be used alone or stacked up to three high to vary the level of physical challenge and work on gross motor skills. Maximum weight tolerance is approximately 175lbs.
Rugged plastic ride-on truck has a real-working “big rig” sounding horn, drop-down tailgate and free turning steering wheel. A safety latch secures the one working door while the other “mock” door is solid and provides added stability. Parent-assist handle-hole located on the roof and included optional floorboard increase enjoyment for younger children or children who have motor delays.
The Backyard Barbeque Get Out ‘n Grill set comes with an upright grill, grilling utensils and pretend foods. Imagination and creativity are used as children pretend to have a cookout and fix a hamburger and hotdog for their friends. Children practice fine motor skills as they turn the grill knobs, open and close the grill lid and cabinet, use tongs to place the hotdog in the bun and use the spatula to flip hamburgers.
48” Color Count Trampoline boasts a sturdy steel frame with foam padding, full mesh enclosure and zipper entrance. The jump surface is lower than traditional trampolines enabling children to get in and out independently. The interactive logo mat and attached color legend can extend play from bouncing to an interactive game where children follow the color pattern on the color legend.
For indoor or outdoor use; weight limit 100lbs.
