Looking for an outdoor summer toy for a toddler? Look no further! I’ve compiled a list of 10 of my favorite toys to help you out! 

  1. Strider Balance Bike

    So times have changed since I was a kid, and now balance bikes are a thing! Balance bikes help your kiddo learn how to maneuver on a bike and prepare them for the transition to a pedal bike. Tip! Measure your kiddo’s inseam before purchasing. We have a taller kiddo so we ended up getting the Strider 14x Sport instead of the 12 Sport. There is a helpful chart here on Strider’s FAQ page.

  2. Schwinn Bike Helmet

    Helmets are so important, and a must have for any outdoor riding toys. Tip! Measure your kiddo’s head! Your little one may be in a toddler helmet or in a child size helmet.

  3. Step2 Duck Dive Water Table

    Great water toy to play with outside on a hot, sunny summer day! It’s easy to fill and there is a stopper in it that you can release to let the water out. It also comes with some fun toys like a scooper, rubber ducky, and frog.

  4. Melissa & Doug Rubber Kickball

    So much fun to kick around the backyard or take to a park to play with!

  5. Coleman Kids Quad Chair

    We have this exact chair and it’s been great to take with us wherever we go. It folds up very easy and comes with a carrying case.

  6. Bubble Machine

    My daughter received this as a gift for her birthday and she absolutely loves it. It produces a ton of bubbles and is a lot of fun!

  7. Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Pretty Petals Flower Watering Can

    If you have a garden, this is a great outdoor summer toy for your little one to own! My daughter loves to fill it up and help water the plants. It’s very lightweight and easy to use.

  8. Step2 Sit and Play Kids Picnic Table with Umbrella

    Another great outdoor summer toy that is perfect for picnics! We use ours indoors and outdoors, and it’s great for when we have a group of kiddos over and they need a separate space to eat.

  9. CamelBak eddy Kids 12oz Water Bottle

    We absolutely love these water bottles! We have the daisies and the hammerheads ones. Highly recommend!

  10. Sunday Afternoons Kids Play Hat

    We have the Flower Garden one, and it’s super cute on my daughter. It’s big enough to protect her head and cover her neck. It also provides UPF 50+ Sun Protection.
