It’s mid-summer and the sales on outdoor play sets for children are in full swing. Online and in stores you’ll have your pick of great summer deals on everything from kid-size picnic tables to family-size pools. But remember, these deals won’t last forever, so take advantage now!
Shop Toys ‘R Us online this weekend for up to 30% off select outdoor toys, like this durable plastic play set for kids 2-4 years old. Colorful and compact, the Step2 All-Star Sports Climber combines soccer goal, slide, climbing ladder, and inflatable sports balls. (Free shipping is applied to orders over $75.)
It’s Christmas in July at Little Tikes through the end of this month, which means free shipping and discounts store-wide. Perfect for picnics and outdoor craft sessions, the Easy Store Table from Endless Adventures is weather-proof and low-maintenance, and it may be folded up for easy storage.
Magna bicycles are currently marked down 10% at Target as part of the retailer’s Deals on Wheels online promotion. At 20″ the Magna Bike is just right for boys and girls 8-12 years old.
Trampolines are fun for kids off all ages, and this 12′ flex steel model from Sportspower—available at Kmart—comes with an attached safety net to keep accidents at bay. Be forewarned, however, that with a trampoline, children from miles around will migrate to your house, so have the lemonade ready!
Last but certainly not least, the inflatable above-ground pool is great summertime fun for the whole family (with this summer’s heat, it’s great even if you don’t have kids!) Easy to inflate for summer and just as easy to store during the winter months, the 12′ round, 30″ deep Intex Easy Set Round Pool is available on amazon.com with free shipping.
