The best outdoor play equipment for kids

Playground equipment for the garden holds a special fascination for children. Garden play equipment is highly popular with youngsters and often depends on current trends among their friends and also on their age. While the very young enjoy unforgettable feel-good moments on supervised swings, as they get older it is not uncommon for the sporting aspect of outdoor play equipment to take centre stage. For slightly older children, the children's playground for the garden gives way to a basketball hoop or a trampoline. Fitness equipment is also popular outdoor children's playground equipment.

Playground equipment that is suitable for the garden also depends on the size of the garden. If you are the proud owner of a small garden plot, you can find a wide range of playground equipment for the garden that needs little space. A small garden trampoline can provide as much fun as larger models or other outdoor play equipment that takes up a lot of space.

What outdoor play equipment for children should you choose?

To choose the appropriate garden play equipment for children, you should first consider the size and age of the children. Playground equipment for small children should in no way pose a risk of accidents. Sharp corners and edges as well as protruding screws and components that are not tight are a no-go on children's garden play equipment. When it comes to wooden play equipment for the garden, you should make sure that everything is cleanly finished and that no dangerous splinters can come off. Wooden play equipment also requires maintenance from time to time with a suitable oil or glaze.

Especially popular garden playground equipment for slightly older children accommodate their natural urge to move. Boys can be just as enthusiastic about basketball, the popular street sport, as girls. Accordingly, basketball hoops are popular as playground equipment for the garden. For small children, basketball hoops are only suitable to a limited extent. Basketball hoops, like trampolines, are not ideal outdoor play equipment until children no longer need constant supervision.

Playground equipment that promises a particularly high fun factor is water sports equipment. SUP boards ideally complement your garden playground equipment. There is also playground equipment for the garden among the equipment for fitness training. This type of garden play equipment delights many children and encourages healthy exercise in the fresh air.

Playground equipment for small gardens

To have fun with playground equipment does not require a huge, spacious area. Play and garden are by no means mutually exclusive, even on small plots. Garden playground equipment for small children usually requires little space. Suitable play equipment for small gardens can be, for example, gymnastic mats and fitness equipment. If the space available for your children's play equipment is limited, a small trampoline can also be a successful addition.
