The 10 Best outdoor playsets
From sandpits to monkey bars, have lots of fun in the sun
1. Sand pit
This dinky playpit in a tasteful wood design won't make your lawn look like a Disney outpost.
With rounded corners, chunky footholds and wide, stable base, this slide is great for little ones.
3. Tree swing
If you are lucky enough to have a tree, turn it into one big garden toy with one of these wooden swings for over-fours.
4. Paddling pool
Alas, there have been precious few chances for swimming this summer. But make the most of every ray with this paddling pool.
5. Junior trampoline and enclosure
No need to worry about mishaps on this junior trampoline – it comes with cotton safety sides.
6. Adventure set
This costs a fortune, there is no getting around it. But if you do have the cash, there is no better play set than the sturdy Kudu.
7. Dining set
Children's furniture doesn't come much cooler. It's stackable, hard-wearing and easy to clean.
8. Monkey bars
A set of these monkey bars will keep children amused for hours. They're made of a durable plastic, so they won't rust.
9. Water play table
Fill it full of water and watch the fun start. It's big enough for two children to play with at once and comes with a crow's nest for toys.
10. Play house
Big enough for two – or three, at a push – this house has shutters, a windowed door and even a skylight in the roof for extra light.
