Hi, my name's Jill and I live with my long-term partner Fred and our adorable little Sophia aged 4. I'm very keen on making sure that most of Sophia's time is spent outdoors, whenever possible, as I want her to stay active and enjoy those kind of activities rather than sitting around watching TV on the sofa. As I've read in another thread on the forum, our kids seem to get hold of electronic devices like mobile phones and tablets at too younger age these days and are often left unsupervised without the correct parental controls being enforced. I think its great for kids to learn about and understand technology at an early age and of course a lot of the toys you buy these days involve technology, but there should be a balance. You want your kid to grow up outgoing, confident and socially in-tune, not a recluse that only communicates via social media. So back to my question, I want some good outdoor activities/toys that will help keep my daughter active, that are safe and that will also help her to develop. Does anyone have any good ideas that maybe I wouldn't have thought of? Also, where do other mothers shop for their toys? Do you buy toys online & if so, where are the best places to shop? Thank you!
