Best outdoor toys and bike for a 3 yr old?

Hi,
Moving from our condo to a house next month and my daughter is turning 3 soon. We want to get her a playhouse for the yard but she's very tall so can someone please recommend a good one for taller kids please.

Also she really hasn't had a bike/trike of any kind yet. At her age is she ready for a small bike with training wheels or are there tricycles she will still fit on that would be better for her to learn on? A big wheel even? I'm just not sure what is best and her grandparents want to get her something like that.

Any other outdoor toys for 3 yr old girls you can recommend that would be great. I'm just so excited to finally have our own yard for her to play in.

Really appreciate any help.
TIA!

Best outdoor toys and bike for a 3 yr old?

at 3 i would honestly say that a playhouse would be a waste of money. i would get a wooden swing set for her.

as for a bike, a 16 inch with training wheels

DD got a 12 inch with training wheels at 2, and at 3.5 she is getting too big for it.

ok thanks good to know re the bike.

I definitely need a playhouse for her - being she's never had one it's all she wants and all she plays with when we are at friends houses.

I think any of the step 2 or little tikes playhouses are good see what's in your price range. We were lucky enough to have a friend give us their old one which was in great condition it's not even on the website anymore. My dds are 3and love plaing in it

No advice on a bike my girls still can't pedal

Good to know - thanks.
I'll check out the Step 2 houses.
I was wondering that myself since she's never had a bike or trike yet maybe she can't pedal? I'll have to see about the bike and what will be best for her.
Thanks!
