At last….

the sun has arrived and summer’s here. It’s time to hit the beach, but don’t forget a bag of beach toys…

toddler beach kitIt’s not the beach without buckets and spades: for toddlers and very young children look no further than the Hapes beach basics set, a lovely robust and colourful bucket and spade set.

traditional wooden beach spadeSilverline Mini Round Nose ShovelSlightly older children will enjoy making castles and burying each other with this traditional plastic spade.

For serious castle construction, dam building and general beach engineering for older children and grown –ups, the little gem on the right is brilliant.

Once the castle is built and you are waiting for the tide to come in and wash it away you may want to fly a pocket kite, lark about in the surf with a waboba, or throw an aerobie or nerf vortex about.

Larger parties of older children are always up for rounders. This good quality set has a proper wooden bat and decent ball. If you need to brush up on the rules you’ll find them here.


If that’s all too tiring.. why not just put up a pukka windbreak, relax with a good book and raid the egg sandwiches before the children cover them in sand?
