With Swingball being one of the most popular sports toys, there are plenty more for kids to choose from with classics like toy golf clubs, cricket bats and tennis rackets still being some of the most popular. For the hunters in the family a toy bow and arrow set may be the answer, or maybe even a blowpipe with miniature plastic darts and a target to aim at.
Whilst sports toys can include toy versions of almost any well known sports equipment, some parents may frown at the thought of a toy gun, although Nerf make some great fun models that could never be mistaken for the real thing. Frisbees and almost any sort of flying discs or boomerangs are commonly seen in parks and on beaches during the summer months, and no group of sporty kids playing together would be seen without a football to kick about.
Badminton sets, basketball hoops and volleyball nets are all included in this category, whilst some companies make small versions of table tennis tables for the littlest members of the family. Cycling around a course set up with cones or obstacles is great practise for childrenís eventual trips onto a real road or cycle track. Swimming is a popular sport, and kidís toys include diving weights, small masks and flippers as well as small and lightweight plastic balls for throwing to each other. These toys encourage kids to be active, and many can be played with inside sports halls or other large open spaces.
