It may not be summer, but it’s still a good time to buy outdoor equipment for kids.

So Summer has officially ended in Southern Europe, if the chilly temperatures out there this morning are anything to go by! Nevertheless, it is still a good time to go out and buy outdoor equipment for the kids.
Because Autumn is well and truly here, it doesn’t mean play stops. The children are back to school already up to their eyes in homework. It’s coats and jumpers at the ready and the nights starting to pull in. However, that doesn’t mean the children won’t play outside until next spring! In fact this is the time of year as parents we want to encourage our children to stay away from electronics, games consoles and get fresh air.

Autumn sounds like crispy leaves underfoot with pumpkin spiced latte smells and slow cooker recipes in abundance. However, the truth is that the weather around Southern Europe will still be nice for some months. So don’t dig out the gloves and scarves yet.

Let’s take a look at the weather for the last five years in some of the most popular cities in Europe. We can see that most European countries enjoy nice weather until the end of December. This is certainly a reason to buy a climbing frame for your family!
