Ask any child what garden toy they would most like to own, and the answer would probably be a slide! The thrill of climbing up the steps to the platform at the top and then gliding back down again is too difficult to resist. Junior childrenís slides can purchased as soon as they are toddlers, and are usually made of blow moulded plastic which has extremely smooth surfaces and sides. Little Tikes make a selection of these toys which are made in bright fade resistant colours for indoor or outdoor use.
Stand alone slides get bigger and bigger as the kids get older and heavier. Some even have steel ladders and slide supports to ensure maximum safety, especially when kids are queuing up for their turn. Many of the larger wooden and steel models have special sections for attaching a slide body and Plum Products, TP Activity Toys and Jungle Gym are just three of the experts in this field. Usually made of heavy duty moulded plastic, some of these childrenís slides even have a built in wave effect for roller coaster fun!
Water slides are very popular in the summer time. If you havenít got a suitable slope for a simple plastic sheet type slide, then there are plenty of rigid or inflatable versions that can be connected to a tap, and off you go! Some of these are designed to be added to a paddling pool or above ground swimming pool which doubles the pleasure for all concerned.
