Keeping families entertained and active is extremely important when it comes to living day-to-day at home. We’ve partnered with Toys "R" Us to showcase some cool new toys and activities to keep Canadian families entertained inside and outside the home. From a family bike ride around the block to a family game night in, here are our top picks.
Staying at home calls for some outdoor family time. Get some fresh air in your backyard with these cool toys that can be delivered right to your home.
Family bike ride
Help your kids let out some of that pent up energy with a family bike ride outdoors. Toys "R" Us has a bunch of great deals on bikes. For starters, check out the Baby Shark Balance Bike available exclusively at Toys "R" Us Canada. Song not included (we’ll let you decide if that’s a good or bad thing).
Want your child to be the coolest kid on the block? Teach them some tricks on the Razor - 98mm A Kick Scooter, perfect for both kids and teens, while the smarTrike - T3 scooTer is suitable for toddlers ages two and up.
Tire them out on the trampoline
If your attempts to tire your kids out have been unsuccessful thus far, a trampoline might be a worthy investment. Trampolining is a great form of exercise to build muscle and coordination, and an effective way for kids to let out their energy. This Action 10 foot Gold Series Trampoline is Action Sports’ safest trampoline, and is available exclusively at Toys "R" Us Canada.
You can’t be outdoors all the time, here are our top picks for indoor play.
