Oompa's Top 10 Picks For Outdoor Play

Getting kids to put down their electronics and play outside is a no-brainer with Oompa's top picks for outdoor adventures! From trikes and balance bikes to ziplines and outdoor exploration toys, we've got you covered!


Made right here in the USA, Dirt King has been building the toughest trikes in the world for over 20 years. Known as the "world's best tricycle", this virtually indestructible trike has what it takes to withstand years, if not generations of rough and tumble play. Our favorite trike is constructed of hand welded, heavy-duty 14 and 16 gauge steel with all terrain pneumatic tires and an adjustable seat and tilting handle bars. This trike can handle sidewalks, grass, snow, gravel, and dirt roads alike!


You'll have no problem getting your kids off the electronics when your backyard setup includes zipline! Inspired by a ziplining trip to Costa Rica, our backyard ziplines are designed for kids (and adults) who are just learning the ropes. Our collection is available in a variety of sizes and even includes the ever popular NightRiderz Zipline with a seat that will brighten your entire yard with a bright rotating LED lighted seat and glowing trolley light to guide your ride from start to finish. Important warning... you may not be able to get the kids back inside for dinner! :)


We love anything that encourages outdoor exploration and a fascination for mother nature. This is an Oompa favorite! Our convenient portable microscope enables you to make discoveries in the wilderness. With a compact hand held design, this scope is lightweight and will fit in a small backpack--and possibly even a pocket. With 40x magnification, the little powerhouse is a must have for adventurous kids with a curiosity about the small things. Includes an LED light that is attached to the scope which requires 2 AA batteries (not included).

Haba Terra Kids Mult-Functional Backpack


For explorers who like to take fun with them--comfortably--- we recommend our highly durable, multi-functional backpack. Ready for big and small adventures, this Oompa favorite is equipped with padding in the straps and back as wells an an ergonomically shaped ventilation system which keeps your little adventurer comfy and cool. Includes lots of storage and pockets and large aluminum buckles to attach little extras to the exterior of the backpack. We also love the rain protection features.


For budding engineers also interested in the great outdoors, our Terra Kids Catamaran is a perfect fit. This kit includes over 50 pieces as well as step-by-step instruction guide with easy-to-follow details on building this fun catamaran. After the fun of building, this catamaran is ready to float on water or paddle with it's rubber motor. This kit is fun to do both alone or with an adult or friend... and especially fun to see it in action on the water!

Haba Camping Light


Great indoors or outdoors, this Oompa pick is cleverly designed. Just crank the handle to generate electricity for this innovative camping light! Five LED lights shine to light up the night during camping, night time adventures, and even indoors. Complete with alarm whistle, compass, and neoprene case, this camp light is a great addition to any little explorers collection of adventure toys! 


Wishbone Trikes


Wishbone 3-In-1 Bikes make a perfect gift for a baby's first birthday. Cleverly designed and one of the most versatile pre-bikes you'll find, the cool, convertible bike is designed to fit your child's growing needs from baby walker to toddler tricycle to balance bike! When the child is 12 months old, start with the three wheels and watch your little one scoot all around honing valuable gross motor skills. Next, move on up to a pedal-less bike that teaches balance in a snap! Lastly, flip the frame as the child grows taller and the bike transforms into one of the largest balance bikes available. Honored on Time Magazine's Green 100 List!
