Summer is upon us and that means it’s time to get out and play! Warmer weather, longer days and no school means parents are looking for ways to get their kids outside and busy. Little Tikes is here to rescue you from hearing “I’m bored!” with their line of summer toys that will have your kids begging to go out in the yard and play! From small ones to big ones, these toys will bring smiles to all your kid’s faces by keeping them busy and happy all summer long.

Little Tikes is a quality maker of outside toys that are not only fun but really will last. From babies to big kids, their summer line has products that inspire imaginary play, social engagement and even some water! We love toys that allow kids to use their creativity and think of their own ways to play, and these toys do just that. They are not only simple to use and set up, but are sure to last you for many summers to come.

Slam n’ Curve Water Slide

If you are looking for the “coolest” way to cool down this summer, you will want to invest in the amazingly fun Slam ‘n Curve Water Slide from Little Tikes! Water parks can be expensive, especially if you have multiple kids, so why not bring the fun of rushing down a water slide right into your very own yard? This slide is perfect for kids ages 5 all the way up to age 10 and inflates in less than 10 minutes with its own blower. This slide is pretty big but with its simple design, fits almost any backyard. It is absolutely the best way to spend summer at home- and we can promise you’ll never be hearing “I’m bored!” when this is set up!

We are in love with the easy entry splash pool that is perfect for the littles to jump in and also makes a big splash for the bigger kids rushing down the speedy water slide above. The rock wall ladder with its rope handles and large foot holes, is simple for any age kid to climb up. At the top, you are greeted with a gentle spray of water that is run by any standard garden hose, and then it’s time to rush down the slippery slide! When it’s time to clean up, the Slam n’ Curve Water Slide deflates easily when you un-attach the blower. After you empty the water and dry the slide, you can roll it up and store it in its storage bag until you are ready to play again! This super fun slide is sure to bring many smiles, laughs and cheers all summer long so when the temperatures rise, this slide will soon become your parenting best friend.

Fish ‘N Splash Water Table

There’s nothing like a water table to delight a child – it’s truly summertime gold.  Which is exactly what you’ll find with the tropical Fish ‘N Splash Water Table – with so many ocean-themed toys to play with, from fish to fishing poles, and more.  This is one toy that will keep your little one busy for hours on end this summer.  There’s just something about playing with water that is irresistible and enchanting to a child. 

Water play is an amazing – and fun – way to incorporate sensory play into your child’s day. Sensory play is so critical to a child’s brain development, and kids won’t know they’re learning when playing with the Fish ‘N Splash Water Table.  The table features a “fish bowl” that can be filled with water, tipped to spill the water down a chute, which sends a giant lily pad spinning.  The included colorful crabs, fish, and frogs can swim down the chute and around the water table, while your child delights in trying to catch them with the fishing pole. 

This water table takes just minutes to set up and is incredibly sturdy.  We love the Fish N’ Splash water table for bigger families or play dates, because it’s big enough for multiple children to enjoy at the same time. If you’re looking to keep the kids busy for hours upon hours, with loads of giggles in between, this is the way to go!

Jr. Jump ‘N Slide Bouncer 

Want to knock the socks off your children this summer? Want to watch them laugh endlessly?  Want to tire them out like never before?  The Jr. Jump ‘N Slide Bouncer is where it’s at for hours of incredible fun! It’s all the fun of a giant rented inflatable bouncer that you’d see at a carnival, in a size that’s perfect for your backyard (and a price that works for your wallet – for the price of renting a bounce house, you can own this one!).

This incredible bouncer features an extra wide slide, so two children can slide down at the same time together, or roll down lengthwise, if they’re feeling spunky.  The area inside the mesh walls is the perfect size for a few children to jump, bounce and giggle like crazy.  Your kids will be begging you to pull out this bouncer to make an average day just a bit more special, and you’ll love setting it up for play dates, summer barbecues, and birthday parties. 

You’ll be truly amazed at how fast and easy it is to set up the Jr. Jump ‘N Slide Bouncer.  Simply affix the included blower to the bouncer, plug it in, and turn the blower on, and within seconds (we counted just 15 seconds!), the bouncer is inflated and ready for hours of jumping fun.  Four stakes keep the bouncer pinned to the ground, and another two keep the blower in place for safety purposes.  The inflated size measures 124”L x 84”W x 62”H, and a bag is included for storage when the product is not in use.

Sizzle and Serve Grill

The super-cute Sizzle and Serve Grill from Little Tikes is the perfect addition to your child’s backyard toy collection. It’s a small, round grill, modeled to resemble the actual family BBQ grill in the backyard, but yet will provide your copycat child the opportunity to cook alongside Daddy (or Mommy!) and have fun, imaginative play in the great outdoors. What could be better than that?

The easy to push, built in wheels make this lightweight grill very portable, which is perfect for toddlers who love to rearrange everything. The vibrant colors are also a cute feature, and the easy to open and close lid makes emulating Daddy a breeze. It also comes with over 12 accessories, from pretend condiments and spatulas to hamburgers and hot dogs. This summer, encourage imaginative play with this adorable (and very affordable!) Sizzle and Serve Grill from Little Tikes.

Cape Cottage

Ignite your child’s creativity with the adorable Cape Cottage. They will spend hours playing make-believe in this adorable playhouse, which resembles a real, contemporary cottage, with brick details, arched doorways and a faux shingled roof. The Cape Cottage is lightweight, so you can easily move it around the yard (or even the playroom, if you’d like to keep it inside). The cottage features 2 working doors and windows with opening shutters, as well as a mail slot and a flag holder

Whether they’re playing house, drive-thru, post office or school, this little cottage is the perfect shady place for them to spend the summer days ahead. Children of all ages will love the details of this little house, and it is sure to be a backyard favorite for summers to come.

So no matter what day it is, these toys from Little Tikes will inspire your kids to role play and take their imagination to a whole new world. Perfect for girls and boys- these toys will be ones that all of your kids will love to play with, every single day!
