Summer Toys!

As a mom, we often wonder, “What are the best summer toys for kids for any trip, day outside or new season that is approaching.” No one wants to spend money or time on anything that isn’t worth it! Now that it’s summer time, and we are in the HEAT of summer, finding the best must-have baby items can be more helpful than we realize. My team and I reached out to you, real people, to find the summer must-have’s for littles that top your list! I hope this will be helpful to you as you brave the heat with your sweet little ones.

Sandy toes are always a summer must-have!

Water Tables

Water tables are one of the best summer toys for kids that have been proven to be worthy of any mama’s time and money! These are easy to set up, and make it easy for littles to stand and play while mama sits close by enjoying her view. There are several water table styles available on Amazon. They have styles that range from simple, one level tables to two and three levels with all the bells and whistles! The time your littles will spend on these is endless!

Little Tikes 2-in-1 Swing

Another summer must-have for littles, and honestly, a must-have for much of the year, is a Little Tikes 2-in-1 swing! These swings have been around for years! They’re reliable and sure to provide fun for littles at several ages due to the fact that these can adjust with the growth of your child. Children can use these from ages 9 months to 4 years. That’s a huge span, and you’re sure to get a lot of life out of these must-have swings!

Pool Floats for Babies

These are a summer must-have for babies when you know you’ll be near a pool! Holding a baby in the pool is always an option, and it works for a little while, but mama’s arms get tired! Can I get an “Amen”?? Mama’s with multiples also could benefit from having both hands available to help out the other kiddos! This is where a baby float is helpful! Many babies like to float, and this is a great way to give mom’s arms a little break from holding baby and baby a break from being held!

Sweet, summer breeze!

Baby Pools and Sprinklers! These are oldies but goodies and till some summer toys for kids! Baby pools are a great way to stay cool without having to leave the comfort of your home. Set one of these up in the backyard, add a simple sprinkler, and voilà! You have entertainment for your littles and a little sit-down time for you!
