    Default Trampoline, swing set or sand pit for 2 year old?

    My dd's 2nd birthday is in a couple of weeks time. Trying to decide what to buy her.
    What do you think is a better choice- trampoline, swing set or sand pit. I am looking for appropriateness for age and for it be used for a while. Thanks.

    Sand pit for sure. Unless you're talking about one of those little tramps with the handles on them :-)

    Trampoline: you will be constantly hovering and supervising to make sure no one gets hurt. But great fun

    Swing set: mum can you push me. Mum push me. Muuum. But again great fun.

    Sand put; great kitty litter trays. Make sure you keep coveredwhen not in use.but again great fun.

    We currently have all 3 but haven't got sand yet for the sand pit. It comes down to your personal preference. They are all great fun for kids

    My nearly 2 yr old spends the most time in the sandpit.
    And it's where I can step back a little, swing set and trampoline I need to be there all the time because of his stuntman behaviour.

    Sorry this was a double post. Thanks for all your replies. I think I have decided to get a sandpit.

    I'd get a trampoline if I had the room.

    We got DD a trampoline for her second birthday, it was a hit. She is nearly four now and it is still one of the most played with items in her outdoor toy collection!

    We have all 3, and he loves all of them! When his cousins come over though it's the trampoline and slippery dip/double swing that gets used the most - we just have a small trampoline ( big enough for 2) it's enclosed and low enough for him to get on and off by himself so I just sit on the deck and watch him!
    the sand pit is good ( make sure you get ones that's covered) but I find the novelty wore off the quickest with it
