It's never too early to start getting your kids outside. In fact, experts say that having kids play outdoors is not only good for their overall development, it's essential for their mental health.

The Different Guide test experts in the Kitchen Appliances and Culinary Innovation Lab regularly test outdoor toys, including sandboxes, water tables, basketball hoops, bikes, scooters, wagons, trampolines, and so much more. We tested toys from more than 20 manufacturers, looking at how well they worked, how easy they were to set up and use, and what kind of instructional materials were included. We test all of these items in our Lab and publish our findings in our annual Holiday Gift Guide, so parents can choose the best toys for their kids. Here are the best gifts for 1 year old boys outdoors you can buy this holiday season:

NWESTUN Bow and Arrow for Kids with LED Flash Lights - Archery Bow with 10 Suction Cups Arrows, 6 Foam Targets, Target and Quiver, Gifts for 4-12 Year Old Boys, Green

NWESTUN Bow and Arrow for Kids with LED Flash Lights

by NWESTUN
What We like

The mini bow & arrow set is loads of fun, and the little suction cups sure proved useful getting the target to stick. But the bow string is too short, and the arrows are flimsy. The bow's handle is plastic, so your child has to angle the handle to remain stable, and the plastic is prone to cracking.
