Editor Meghan Young Discusses Her Picks to Encourage Outdoor Activity in Kids

 - Aug 7, 2014
With most kids off on summer holidays, many parents are trying to encourage their children to get off the couch and engage in active outdoor play. Trend Hunter's Meghan Young counts down her top picks, from adjustable kid bicycles to child gardening sets and outdoor play timepieces.

If you're looking for an investment piece, GROW bicycles from Orbea actually grow with your child so they can ride the same bike for years. This example of active outdoor play not only encourages exercise, it also allows your kids to explore their neighborhood. Or if you are looking for a little help with the gardening, Alessi Giardino designed tools that look like toys but can also be used to help out in the yard. Meanwhile Moosh allows youngsters to take social media outside with its physical gaming system.
