Here you’ll find a variety of Gardening Toys For Kids to choose from. With warmer weather approaching, you’ll want to provide outdoor toys for your kids to play with and gardening toys are a great choice.
Kids love gardening, and I know this because both of my boys have loved playing with gardening toys, and as they get older they like actual gardening. Just last weekend we planted some marigolds and cucumbers.
Even though the weather might not be warm around Christmas, these still make excellent Christmas gifts for kids who like gardening. Many of these toys can be used both inside and outside. Your kids will love using their imaginations until they can plant a real garden.
Gardening toys are also great because they’ll get your little ones outside, and you can get your yard work done while they play right along beside you. You may even get them to pick up pine cones and sticks and haul them in a little toy wheel barrow.
Below you’ll find a variety of suggestions for Gardening Toys and Toy Garden Tools for your kids to play with. There are gardening toys, garden tools, garden carts, toy lawn mowers, and more! All of these make excellent warm weather outdoor toys, and many are great for indoor play as well.

Best Gardening Toys For Kids
These are my favorite gardening toys for kids because they provide a variety of pieces to help your kids use their imagination. These toys can be used both indoors and out, and are great for pretend play or getting in the dirt and having fun. The tool set goes well with both the wheel barrow garden cart set and the garden table. These products are often purchased together, but work well separately as well.
Toy Gardening Tote Sets
These Gardening Tote Sets are wonderful gardening toys for kids. The cute themes make these gardening sets more fun for kids than plain garden toys.

Toy Gardening Tools
Toy gardening tools are probably what you think of when you think about gardening toys for kids, and even though there are many more options available, these are probably still the most popular. How can you beat a shovel and a rake? My 6 year old loves hand tools because he loves to use the hand shovel to play in the dirt.

Toy Watering Cans For Kids
Toy watering cans are always a hit with small kids because, let’s just face it, kids love anything to do with water. My 6 year old loves to water our flowers and our cucumbers with a small watering can. He also likes to use it like a shower in our kiddie pool. Watering can toys are such a great toy for kids!

Toy Gardening Cart
These toy gardening carts are adorable and make great outdoor toys for kids. They’re great to haul toys, dirt, and gardening tools around the yard. Small kids will love following you around as you garden with all their gardening toys in the cart.
Toy Wheel Barrow
Toy wheel barrows are also great gardening toys. They’re very similar to the garden carts above, but these are more realistic and may be a preference for some kids. You may get some help in the yard if you get your child one of these!
Toy Lawn Mowers
Toy lawn mowers are excellent gardening toys. My 6 year old has been “mowing” the lawn with his dad for years with his toy mower. It’s so cute to watch him try to be so much like his dad. For the first couple of years the bubble feature worked, but it doesn’t work anymore, and my son still plays with his as much as he did when it worked. Even when my husband isn’t mowing, my son will, and he even tells my husband to mow for real if the grass gets too high.
