What outdoor toys does your toddler LOVE??

The weather is finally starting to get nice, so we have been able to get outside almost everyday here. DD is 17 months, and I am not really sure what toys she would like for outside? I did get her a bucket, trowel, and rake and she has been loving just scooping dirt into the bucket!!

I was wondering if there were any cool toys that your toddler just loves outside?? Im looking for moderately priced, and something I can buy used. Thanks!!

Oh, and what age did you let your child use chalk where they were actually into it?

Oh, and as for the chalk, she was a year old when she first used it. The big thick sidewalk chalk.

Re: What outdoor toys does your toddler LOVE??

My kids loved some sort of early ride-on toy that they could move with their feet (not a pedal bike). Bubbles and a kiddie pool were also very good choices. You can always fill a bucket with water and get some nesting cups and let them have fun with those, too. I also enjoyed pointing out worms, flies, bugs, or any small wildlife outside that they could observe.

My kids have always loved the sand box! DD2 started using chalk around 16mos or so I guess. She likes it. We just got them a playscape(kinda like the little tikes hide & slide climber but maybe an older version of it?) We got it off craigslist and the kids love it! Sometimes dd2 like to take her pfrisher price gobble n go hippo out too. Oh and how could I forget balls!

My ds is 2 and he loves his sandbox. It was a big hit last year too. You can usually find them used for cheap. I got mine free, but spent about $15 for sand to fill it.

DS is 18mo. old and he likes anything that is a toddler sized replica of what big people use outside...rakes, shovels, watering cans, etc. If course, he likes the big people things better than the toys (got him his own little broom set, barely uses it but continues to pull out our broom and mop 500x/day). And sticks! He loves to play with sticks, the biggest ones he can find. We have a John Deere sit on tractor that he can push with his feet and a wagon for pushing or pulling, and a kettler trike that he likes, but usually he's pulling up grass, playing with big people stuff, or waving a stick around.

My dd loves her Cozy Coupe, slide, swing and also chasing anything like balls, frisbees, etc. We have a little camp chair and she likes to sit in there and look as books or color (Color Wonder paper and markers only)

sticks, rocks, dirt, trees, puddles, and mud lol

No, seriously. We really don't have any outside toys. Sometimes we have cups or pails that they take out and use with spoons or shovels. We do have a small trampoline (the kind many people have inside) and they have bikes (little ride on toy for the youngest) and they like chalk, though we don't have it very often.
