This wheelbarrow set is a godsend in the garden! It is a brightly coloured wheelbarrow with 5 garden tools contained inside. It cost me £19.90 from Tumble Tots and is rated for children 3 and up although there are no small parts so younger children can use it. It is quite long so seems more adult than the toy wheelbarrows you can sometimes get. My daughter thinks it looks just like grandads.
The wheelbarrow is green with a yellow wheel and red handles, it is easily handled and is very attractive. It comes with a watering can, 4 flowerpots, a rake, secateurs, hoe, dipper and a basket. All the tools are different colours and they are all made of strong durable plastic. The tools have grips on the handles to prevent them slipping out of hands and are a nice size for childrens hands.
The wheelbarrow was easily made, it only needs 3 things attaching together and it is very durable. All the tools including the basket and watering can fit neatly inside the wheelbarrow so it tidies away easily and as the tools are so lightweight the child can carry them all over the garden with no problem.
It would have been good for it to contain some gardening gloves as part of the set but that would be the only gripe -and it's a very minor one!- that I could think of.
This wheelbarrow set is perfect for children, the tools actually do work when in the garden so they can work alongside you without needing help. There is a good variety of tools so they have plenty to pick from. My mum has bought a separate wheelbarrow set to keep up at her house as it was such a hit with the kids.
A larger and more traditionally shaped Garden Wheelbarrow, for slightly older children of the green-fingered variety. The set is made out of cheerful red, yellow and green plastic and includes a neat range of garden hand tools; 4 flowerpots, fan rake, dibber, secateurs, watering can, hoe and a separate basket. Designed for safe and creative outdoor play, this sturdy set will make a lasting impression on all you budding gardeners.
