If you love cycling but have a child too young to master two wheels, a seat for your own bike is a worthwhile purchase. And the Hamax Kiss is one of the best out there.
Love paddling in rivers and lakes but don’t want the hassle of transporting a heavy canoe? Then the Sevylor Madison inflatable kayak is the boat for you.
As your baby grows into an energetic toddler they could start getting bored and restless in the pram, which is where the Smart Trike Dream 4-in-1 comes in. Sonny loves his, and so do I.
I should make it clear from the start that the Coleman CXS+ 250 LED head torch isn’t a kids’ toy – it’s a proper piece of outdoor kit – but the good news is Sonny loves it just as much as I do.
The Vaude Shuttle Premium is designed for serious walkers who want their kids to share their outdoor adventures. The feature spec is high and so is the price, so is it worth it?
I generally gauge the quality of baby outdoor gear by the amount of noise Sonny makes. If he’s loud and angry, it sucks. If he’s quiet and content, it’s a huge thumbs up. And happily the Isbjörn Cozy fits into the second category.
The Little Life Arc 2 travel cot trebles up as a lightweight portable bed, convenient baby day prison, and outdoor sun shield, with the added bonus that it packs down into a small backpack for easy transportation. A 3-in-1 masterpiece!
If your baby still isn’t walking but loves being outside on cold days, Stonz booties are perfect for keeping their feet warm on winter adventures.
We’ve spent hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds on expensive toys and gear to entertain Sonny in the nine months since he was born. But what does he love most? This crappy cardboard box, of course.
I found out quickly this winter that cold ears = unhappy baby. Which is why this daft beanie hat from Isbjörn of Sweden has been an invaluable addition to Sonny’s outdoor wardrobe.
