From backyard to beach, pool to sandbox, outdoor toys offer many fun opportunities for kids to get moving and playing, creating a foundation for building strength, stamina, self-esteem, and social skills, whether they choose to be a team player or have an active outdoor adventure alone. HearthSong believes strongly in the benefits of outdoor active play for kids; we feel that, like all creative play, moving is essential to the well-being and development of the child. Through outdoor play, the child engages with his surroundings and develops socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Our collection of toys for active outdoor play is designed to inspire new and different ways to capture kids' imaginations and inspire them to discover creative options for enjoying the outdoors—and the companionship of other kids. Our swings offer multiple options for play that go way beyond swinging, and come in all shapes and sizes, most of which are quite different from traditional swings (though we have those, also). They are platforms that spin, big enough for friends and even family to share! They can be square, round, curved, shaped like skateboards, double-decker, and we have many more on the drawing board! Our play balls are giant-sized. Kids can roll them, run with them, crawl inside and roll around in them or even bounce off other kids who are wearing giant play balls. We have ladders to climb, wings to wear, bowling, tetherball, badminton, volleyball, and tennis games. We also have domes to climb, zip lines to fly through the air on, and special slacklines to balance on. All these toys are quality crafted and must pass rigorous testing by our product safety and quality control lab. The best thing about them is that they're designed so that families can frequently join in the fun, and certainly few things make better spectator sports than kids at play. Everyone benefits from our outdoor toys!
