The perfect gift for your little landscape architect!
I have the quintessential little boy. Trucks, trains, fire trucks, police cars, construction “vehicles”, tractors, boats, wheels, dirt. All rolled into a smiling three and a half year old.
Last year, on a day when we had nothing scheduled, I brought him to a John Deere store to simply look around. He was in heaven. He even insisted on bringing home one of their product catalogs so I could read it to him at night as his bedtime story.
Tomy’s Lawn and Garden Set
You can imagine how fast I agreed to review TOMY‘s new Lawn & Garden Set (complete with a retractable cord trimmer, trowel and mini hand rake).
It was the perfect new toy for my wannabe little landscape architect!
As expected, before I finished taking it out of the box it was out of my hands. The perfect size for a three year old, he immediately got to work getting the weeds out of my living room carpet.
Let’s Take It Outside To Try
As we moved the party outside, he went to town. Having watched our gardener trim the lawn earlier in the day, he knew just what to do.
With it’s easy to pull cord, he got the popping beads to make a great, authentic noise so he could trim to his heart’s desire.
Lightweight and easy to hold even for the littlest gardener, he maneuvered around with ease feeling like a big boy.
We’re a big gardening family so he was also excited to have his own hand rake to use and wanted to get to work right away.
But by far, his favorite thing was pretending to be the “park man”. With that said, my son’s favorite part of a park is the gardening tools cart. He likes to just stand there, look at it, point and name them. Sometimes the nice workers will let him sit in the cart and pretend he is driving it.
Now he can be his own park man. If I could say this went on for hours it would not be an understatement. As you can see from his new outfit, days even!
If you have a little one who also loves to garden, is a little landscape architect, or is equally enthralled by the “park man” you should definitely check out the John Deere Lawn & Garden Set by Tomy.
