Okay, that PVC car wash is awesome!!!

My kids love our 15 foot enclosed trampoline. We also have a big wooden swingset but honestly could have done without that. They run up and down the slide but rarely use it.

They also play soccer out back.

My Mom found that at a garage sale last eeekend and bought it for the kids. Glad it's entertaining - she brings it this weekend.

OP - the sandbox is everones favorite out back. The playhouse with some cheap playfood is quite the hit too - and often used in combo with the sandbox.

We have done the roller coaster on grass and the deck, and it is fine on both. DD is 5 and still likes it.

Re: Your kids' favorite outside toys

Sandbox, water table, playhouse, bikes, ride on toys (battery and foot power), balls, hoola hoops, swings (especially the tire swing in the front tree), bubbles, slides, skipping ropes (which get used for everything BUT skipping, it seems), Tonka dump trucks and similar, buckets, parachute, garden implements... Last summer we started a treehouse, and DH let the kids hammer and screw scrap pieces of wood together. They had a BLAST doing that, and it has become a favourite activity. I also have an easel outside and they like to paint and chalk there.

^his carwash is kind of like this^
I saw this on Pinterest yesterday. I wanted to try it, so glad to hear it works and is a hit!
