Now that Christmas is over, you may find that some of magic of presents given to them over the festive period is beginning to wear off. It is not unusual to find that by the middle of January, children who thought that the latest must-have action figure or doll would bring then endless satisfaction and happiness are starting to lose interest in favour of more versatile, interactive and substantial sources of entertainment. When it comes to toys, children will always come back to those tried and tested outdoor classics such as, swings, climbing frames, trampolines, sand pits and dare we say, paddling pools, for when the weather gets that little bit warmer.
In one of our previous blogs we talked about the wonders of swings and how they encourage children to spend more time in the garden surrounded by the natural world. We have also described the sheer joy of watching your little ones pushing out unaided on a bike for the first time. In fact there are so many outdoor toys to choose from, all of which will have a unique impact on your child's experience and development.
Here at Wicken Toys we are fanatical about outdoor play. Indeed, this passion is drawn from our personal memories of playing outdoors. All of us have special memories of outdoor play; imagining we were cowboys, Indians, pirates or wizards. In fact, a particular kind of memory that we all share here at Toy Towers is that of making a tee-pee or den by throwing a rug or sheet over a climbing frame or swing. So for this blog we thought we'd focus on some very exciting garden play houses and how they can be used in multiple ways to help expand your child's imagination.
We have an exceptional range of playhouses to assist your little ones in their games of make believe, so as to make imaginative play, just that bit more realistic. Our wooden playhouses are by All Out Play and not only look great in garden, blending in perfectly with the natural environment, but are also exceptionally well built and robust. Not only this but also a good playhouse will provide a stage set for your kids' most exciting adventures. Be it a castle for friends to 'try' to invade, a pirate ship sailing the seven seas for plunder or a hybrid playhouse / climbing frame that can double as a tree-top village, these playhouses will ensure that your little ones get the most excitement from their outdoor play. These designs also include enclosed spaces, which means they are great in all weather and enable your children to feel secure in the perfect surroundings for their imaginative fantasies.
