Top 40 Youth Ideas in July

From 360-Degree Swiveling Swings to Cruise Ship Water Parks

— July 30, 2017 — Life-Stages
As the July 2017 youth trends reveal, summer continues to be the ultimate time for outdoor play. Whether it is in the backyard or on a cruise ship, parents are making sure their kids are enjoying the outdoors as much as possible.

When it comes to at-home accessories for outdoor play, nothing beats a swing. To bring a new element of fun to the swinging experience, the Galaxy Swing Company recently debuted a product called the Galaxy 360 Swivel Tree Swing, which rotates a full 360-degrees.

Of course, outdoor play isn't simply limited to the playground and the backyard. As the July 2017 youth trends reveal, even travel companies such as cruise ship operators are thinking about how to keep kids active. As a result, new attractions such as Carnival Cruises' WaterWorks water park and Disney Cruises' Marvel Day events have become popular among families.
