Spring time is here, and so is extra outdoors time, long afternoons barefoot on the streets and indulging in vanilla ice-cream cones every day. Oh, how eagerly we have been waiting for this. Sun sets at 9 pm, ice cream shops get crowder each day and it’s time to bring out the equipment for outdoor fun!
Here are some of our favourite outdoor equipment pieces for a sunny, busy spring!

This one is a life saver and my son’s absolute favourite toy! The Mini Deluxe scooter by Kickboard is the ideal scooter that accompanies your kids from ages 2 to 5!
