Popular Items During Lockdown

Popular Items During Lockdown

There have been many popular items during lockdown (not counting toilet paper!). We’ve all been feeling the social squeeze, and it’s important to find other outlets to enjoy ourselves and get together when many of our usual opportunities are on indefinite hiatus. As a home and professional store for garden equipment and outdoor toys, we’ve had an opportunity to witness first-hand how people are creating their own fun at home. Here are a few of the most popular items we’ve seen.

#1 Trampolines: one of the most popular items during lockdown

When you don’t have access to the usual outlets, then your back garden becomes an important resource for creating your own entertainment. So it’s no wonder that, in Ireland, trampolines have become very scarce! We have seen our entire selection get sold out constantly. What this means is that we have to offer these items on pre-order. These are an excellent way to pass the time for young and old alike, so if you’re considering purchasing one for the summer we strongly advise you make your plans now to avoid disappointment.

#2 Kids Water Slides and Paddling Pools

With nowhere to go but home, we have to move mountains to keep ourselves entertained — never mind the kids! So when there’s little expectation of entertainment centres re-opening this summer, it’s no wonder that many people are choosing to purchase exciting new outdoor toys such as kids water slides to keep everyone happy and active over the warmer months. Naturally, most of these items are only available on Pre-order due to unprecedented demand. Though some are currently available (for however long, we don’t know). Such as the incredible H20GO! Turbo Splash and other inflatable toys that will keep the family happy.

#3 Hoverboards

One of the most popular items during Lockdown are hoverboards. Most of these are, of course, sold out. People want to enjoy their time outdoors and, in Ireland, Hoverboards are a fun way to get out and about, learn some new tricks and just have a bit of fun. For now, the Oxboard ONE is still available while the others are only available on Pre-order. So if you want to ensure you get a hoverboard for the summer, we strongly recommend you consider buying today!
