Made for fun in the sun, this colorful, eye catching excavator is sure to give your little one hours of fun at the beach, in the pool, or the sandbox. Your child can easily fill the hinged sand shovel with sand, shells, stones or any small item they wish to move. A simple locking mechanism keeps the shovel wide open when while scooping and closed tightly while transporting. The large wheels allow the truck to roll smoothly in the sand and the large handle allows your little one to easily carry the excavator to pour sand where needed. Pushing the excavator through the sand, filling the scoop and carrying the excavator by the handle will not only promote your child's hand-eye coordination, but will also strengthen both large and small motor skills. This multi-use toy facilitates free sand play which stimulates your child's tactile sense and promotes sensory development. This Excavator sand toy also encourages open-ended play to spark your child's creativity. Will your child build a large sandcastle with a mote, a network of rivers and streams or, a crab city for hermit crabs? The possibilities are endless. So, grab your family and head out for some summer fun with this entertaining sand toy.
