A lot of people hate the idea of ‘putting kids on leads’ but if a set of toddler reins keeps my son safe, encourages him to walk and gets him outdoors more – I’m all for it!
Kids love getting outside in winter just as much as summer, so they need coats that keep them warm and toasty on their adventures. Here are the best winter coats for toddlers we’ve tested.
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.
Horse racing, Olly Murs, an adventure playground, a boozy picnic and one happy toddler. Newmarket Nights was pretty much the perfect first live gig for our little family.
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!
