With spring in full swing, we are moving play out of the house with a stylish selection of garden toys and baby-friendly garden furniture.

As soon as baby learns to walk they’ll want to get out and about. There are plenty of ways you can transform your own outside space into a hub of exploration and adventure. Our selection of garden toys and garden furniture will open up your little one’s world, while keeping your garden looking stylish and summery.

The Best Garden Toys and Garden Furniture

From Wendy houses to sand pits, picnic essentials to gardening activities for little (green) fingers, here’s how you can turn your garden or patio space into an extension of the playroom (with a little less of the, erm, organised chaos going on indoors…).
