Toys for Your Garden this Summer

I've been browsing John Lewis store online to find some fun games for the kids to have in the garden this summer. Outdoor fun is so important and my kids just love it in the garden. We currently have swings, a slide and scooters but I thought it would be nice to get them some more toys for outside, especially now the weather is getting better, and we have the whole six week summer holiday coming up soon.

John Lewis have lots of choice so I've picked a few of my favourites for you.

Water Based Toys


Lets start with something kids of all ages enjoy...bubbles. This fab little bubble making machine will save you blowing while the kids chase the bubbles around the garden. Of course you can buy them some bottles of bubbles themselves but just tell them the bubble machine is blowing yours for them.




Kids like nothing more than water play in the summer, and what could be more fun than a Super Soaker! Just make sure you stay indoors and leave them to it.

Nerf Super Soaker £16.99

Fun and Exercise


One of the games I truly loved as a child was Rounders. It was fun, you got loads of exercise and it needs very little equipment, like this Rounders Bat and Ball set. I bet you'll be joining in with the kids with this one.




There are so many games that you can play in your garden that don't take up much space. Great if you only have a small garden, the kids can still play outside and have some fun. Here is one of those games, a fabulous Hoopla Set


How about taking  a favourite indoor game outside? All you need to do is make it bigger like this fantastic Giant Tower Game. I remember one of these being outside at a wedding reception a couple of years ago, it was a great success with kids and 'big' kids.



The next game is one of my favourites and I'm definitely getting this for my kids this summer, it's a lovely colourful set of Boules an all time family classic.


Gardening and Mud!


Kids love to help with the gardening, you can get all sorts of gardening tools for their little hands. What aspiring gardener wouldn't love this colourful wheelbarrow and garden tools.



Finally, one of the most favourite things I used to love playing with in the garden was MUD! I would spend hours moulding my mud pies and 'baking' them in the sun. Worms and bugs were added extras.
My mum had loads of cutlery go missing during the summer months. This Mud Pie Kitchen would have been my dream garden toy. 



All we need now is a lovely sunny summer so we can enjoy the garden more!

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
