8. Let’s Explore Rope Ladder
A rope ladder is a classic children’s toy: simple, but definitely effective. Not only is the challenge of climbing to the top fun, it also improves your child’s overall fitness and encourages them to explore and overcome obstacles. It made from strong nylon rope so you don’t have to worry about it breaking, and is very good value.
The main impracticality you might face with this toy is having somewhere to put it. In order for it to work, you need to have a high bar or tree from which you can hang the ladder. As it involves getting quite high, younger climbers will have to be supervised.

9. Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car
Children will love how this car resembles the real thing, from the opening doors to the steering wheel, and even down to the filler cap. The bright colour will appeals to young eyes, as will the smiling face on the front. If your child is younger, you can help them by pushing them along. If they’re older, let them do the work.
The upper age limit on this toy is a little low and, as a result, it is not the most inclusive toy. In addition to this, for the car to work well, it’s best used on an area of flat, hard surface, so it may require you to head outside of the garden and out onto the street.

10. Aerobie Aerobie Pro Ring Outdoor Flying Disc
This isn’t your average frisbee. Its technology has been taken to the next level so it can travel further and faster. In fact, it holds the world record for the furthest a frisbee has ever been thrown! Older children will have hours of fun chasing this around once they’ve masted the art of throwing it.
As it does require strength and coordination, younger children will struggle to get the hang of this so it probably won’t suit households with toddlers to entertain. Also, because it travels so far, make sure you have lots of space!
