I received the Aero Zipp Disk Launcher free to review for this post from Ogo Sport. All opinions expressed in this post are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
It is summertime, which in our family means lots of time outdoors. We love to have people over and want the kids to have lots of options for things to do that are active. Here are my top 5 picks for backyard toys for active families this summer.
This launcher flings a flying disk and amazing speed into the (far) distance. I mean, this baby is POWERFUL. We love standing across the yard, flinging the disk to the kids to catch. I bet this one would be super fun for dogs that love to fetch, too!
Here’s the Aero Zipp Disc Launcher in action:
We bought a zip line at Christmas and have enjoyed sailing through the backyard on it this spring. I have also used it as a clothesline on a few occasions. Win win for me. Got two trees and adventurous kids? This one is for you.
I loved playing tetherball at camp. Would love to install one of these beauties in the backyard for the boys to battle it out. We all remember the rope burn from tetherball tourney at camp, right?
4. Ball Poppers
We are a “no (realistic) weapons” household. That means, no swords and no guns. They do have light sabers, but they are used more for dueling/role play, not harm. Besides, what is the chance my kids are going to come across a REAL lightsaber and mistake it for a toy. Right? We were recently gifted some of these ball poppers are we LOVE them. The boys get into battle with foam balls that shoot from the mouths of animals. There are tons to choose from!
This is probably the most used toy in our yard right now. My son received this when he was 2, but now that he is obsessed with soccer at age 6, he uses it daily to practice his shots. Its a great starter net (with accessories) at a great price.
