Looking for a water table recommendation
AMIE

Which water table is best for a toddler to use both indoor and outdoor? We are looking for something small that would work both in our apartment and on our patio. Thanks in advance!

Hi Amie,

There are many indoor/outdoor water tables to choose from but depending on how much space you have, you may prefer one on the smaller side. I really like this one made by Mobious Toys for a few reasons. First, it’s quite small and great for indoor use in an apartment. Also because it’s small it lends itself well to being used as a sensory bin. It also has a top which can be used for play when not being used as a water table and comes with several toys.

Another idea is a folding water table that can be stored when not in use. The bin for this Edushape Activity Stand is sold separately and good to make sure your child is tall enough to use before purchasing!

Please let me know if you’d prefer larger indoor/outdoor water table options!

Balance bikes?
JENNA

Are balance bikes safe for a 3 yr old? If so, do you have recommendations for a smallish toddler?

Hi Jenna,

Balance bikes are great for 3 years olds! It’s best to look for one that has an adjustable seat so it will fit your child appropriately but will also grow with him or her.

Here are three different styles to consider:
