Summertime and the time is right for - playing indoors on a laptop or tablet? Yup - that's what lots of young folks do today. They don't know what they're missing.
But not in this house.
Summer is the time to get as much fresh air and exercise as you can. Plenty of time in the dark days of winter to play video games and streaming movies!
Time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
What better way than a swing that hangs from a tree. Maybe old-fashioned but it's simple to fix with double the fun.
Children of all ages love the feeling of flying through the air - forwards and backwards, twirling around - it's uncomplicated and exhilarating entertainment.
Add that to our love for the natural world of trees - what could be better?
This kind of physical exercise promotes a sense of balance and is good for your child's gross motor skills. It will also help tune their hand eye co-ordination. And give them a good laugh at the same time!
This selection has something for kids of all ages - including those folks who stay young at heart - remember to let the kids have a go now and then!
Some of the items are not what you would expect but that adds to the enjoyment. Right?
