Loosely grouped under the heading of Lawn Games, lots of such toys are also ideal for indoor use during the winter months. Some need more space than others but with care many can be enjoyed no matter what the weather is doing outside. Catch ball is a popular game and a great way of encouraging interaction between adults and children as it’s a game that lends itself to any age group. Why not set up indoor tournaments and compete to see who can catch the most? Have a few simple prizes on offer and make it into a popular party game.

Another winner when it comes to indoor family tournaments is the mini pitch and putt golf set. Including three clubs and two different coloured holes complete with flags, carpet putting can provide hours of entertainment and give budding golfers for a taste of the real thing. As well as being fun, the game encourages the development of good hand to eye coordination, spatial awareness and collaborative playing when a few take turns. In the same vein is Boules, and our colourful set includes a carry case and 8 boules in bold primary colours.

Racket games are always popular, so the racket set complete with a soft ball is the ideal outdoor game when the weather permits. Alternatively, the tennis racket set, which includes two rackets and two tennis balls all in a handy carry bag, is the perfect holiday companion for all the family. Other games that kids can enjoy alone include a colourful light-up ankle skipper and a fun 36 inch slam bag.
