This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in May of 2020. We all know how kids' eyes light up at the first sight of snow, but after a while the novelty can wear off and, before long, they are back inside. To keep your youngsters outside and active in the winter weather, we've compiled a list of exciting snow toys that stimulate the imagination, encourage physical exercise, and bring the family together. You may be surprised how much you like them, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube If you're on the slopes regularly and don't mind paying a bit extra, this is a high-end option that will stand the test of time. It is designed for commercial use and has an outer layering which protects the inner tube, meaning it's less likely to break if you hit a bump. llbean.com

Editor's Notes

June 22, 2020:

The most important thing to consider when playing in the snow is safety. All the items in our ranking are suitable for ages six years and above, though some, like the Flexible Flyer Flying Carpet may be used with younger kids under adult supervision.

When choosing an item to successfully whizz down a hill, the Best Choice Products Toboggan and the GoFloats Winter Tube are both great options for slightly different reasons. The former gives the rider more control, as it has lower sides and can be steered using the rope. The latter allows for optimum comfort, owing to its inflatable style, but is best used on designated slopes or open areas where steering is less essential.

We know how expensive it can be trying to kit your kids out for every season, however, with the Geospace LED Ski Scooter and the Flexible Flyer Snow Fort youngsters can get year-round use of their toys as they work just as well on sand as they do on snow.

The Unplugged Explorers Ultimate Kit is a good selection that includes multiple components. It's lovely as a family pack, so that everyone has something, but, if you only want to make snowballs, a sturdier option would be the Cwlakon Snowball Maker Set.

We mentioned earlier about safety in the snow, and nothing can be more essential than wrapping up and staying warm, so we recommend you check out top snow gloves for kids for the ideal ways to keep those digits toasty, or the best coats for dogs if you'll be taking your canine companion along on the family outing.
