Preparing Your Outdoor Toys for Winter


Fall has arrived, and we hope you are able to squeeze the remaining days of joy from your outdoor Step2 toys! Depending on where you live will determine when it is time to prepare your toys for storage until warm weather once again returns.

Cleaning and maintaining coasters, playhouses, ride-ons, wagons, sand boxes, water tables and sports items before cold weather storage make it much easier come springtime. To help prepare for winter, check out our FAQs for cleaning and maintenance tips.

Additionally, we always recommend gathering accessories for a thorough cleaning and determination if replacement parts should be ordered. (Tip: accessories for Step2 products make nice stocking stuffers and are convenient to have on hand when bringing items out of storage!)

If you happen to move and are disassembling your climbers, slides and swings, consider purchasing new hardware when products are reassembled.

If you are in need of ordering replacement parts, just call our Consumer Service team Monday through Friday at 1-800-347-8372, 8:00 am – 11:00 am and 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm and we will be happy to assist you!
