ELC Baby Bucket Set
Advantages: Good size for toddlers, four individual pieces
Disadvantages: Rake could have wider holes
Living in Cornwall, we are never far away from the beach. Living close to the beach means we visit many different beaches quite often, that also means that we have quite a big collection of various sand toys, buckets, spades, sieves, sand moulds, the list is endless! One bucket set we have is this one from Early Learning Centre.
Of course, being an Early Learning baby bucket set, it isn't available from a lot of places but most Early Learning Centres and Mothercares should stock it or it is available to purchase on their websites. Its full RRP is £4 but I remember purchasing it when it was on sale for £3.
There are four individual pieces included in this set. A bucket, rake, scoop and sand mould. These are the essentials a child might need for a visit to the beach. As this is a baby bucket set it isn't as big as normal buckets and spades, saying that, it isn't too small that it's boring either.
Each piece of this set is made from the high quality, tough material you would expect from an Early Learning Centre product. The bucket has a rather large handle, this makes it easy for younger children with little hands to get a good grip and makes them able to carry the bucket themselves. My favourite thing about this bucket is that it has a V shaped drop in the top of the bucket, this makes it a lot more easier for children to pour the sand/water from the bucket. The sand mould is shaped as a rabbit, it has nice detailing to it so that when wet sand has been placed inside and the mould taken off, it leaves a quite detailed rabbit in the sand.
The most disappointing part of the baby bucket set is the rake. The holes between each fork are rather small so it takes some effort to rake through the sand. We have another rake from ELC and it has a much better quality than the one included in this set.
My daughter is two and a half years old and still enjoys playing with this set at the beach although it is a little smaller than some of her other beach toys. I'd definitely recommend this baby bucket set, it's perfect for toddlers and the price is good too, even at full price.
Summary: A nice bucket set
