Outdoor play is an important part of an active and healthy childhood. However, in modern times when children are surrounded by a plethora of screens, parents often note that their kids spend less time outdoors getting rid of their energy out developing essential physical skills. Toys which encourage outdoor play are a great solution, such as the Globber scooter, available throughout Australia at Mr Toys stores and online.
The Importance of Playing Outdoors
You have probably heard that active play is essential for your child’s health. But why exactly is that? Active play helps not only keep growing bodies strong and healthy, which combats issues such as childhood obesity, it also builds crucial motor skills and encourages social interaction.
While there are many forms of active play for kids indoors, playing outdoors seems to naturally inspire the kind of imaginative adventures and exploration that keeps kids moving for longer. Encouraging more outdoors play for your child in a safe and secure location, such as on a scooter within a fenced backyard, is a wonderful way to help your kids be more physically active and engaged.
Scooters are a particularly fun way to get your child started with active outdoors play. Most children love learning how to ride their very own scooter, which will allow them to zip around their driveway or along a quiet neighbourhood sidewalk with ease. When you buy a Globber scooter for your child, you will unlock a world of possibility all within a short distance of your backyard porch or driveway. Your child likely won’t miss their video games when they have a scooter to explore the world!
In addition to helping encourage outdoors play, toys such as the Globber scooter can help children build confidence about trying and learning new things, such as riding a scooter. The innovative and sturdy design of the Globber scooter helps young riders develop balance and features adjustable handlebars that allow your scooter to grow alongside your child. Additional features such as steering locks provide safety and stability.
Globber scooters come in a variety of styles and colours. Parents can also pick out essential safety gear, such as the Globber Junior Protective set in a range of sizes, which help ensure that their child’s outdoor playtime is as safe as possible. When you take care of your scooter, including always making sure that all bolts are tight and secure and ensuring that the brakes are functioning properly, your Globber scooter will last for years of valuable outdoor play.
