The minute you pick up this shovel, you will notice the difference: heavier, sturdier, more substantial! Perfect for some serious digging in the sand or garden. The problem we found with most beach shovels is that they are not made to endure the play of children, so we decided to change that with this heavy duty Beach Shovel by Spielstabil. Parents will love buying something that actually lasts and the 10 year guarantee makes certain of the value and long term fun. Approximately 27.5 inches long and recommended for ages 2 years and up.
