        These are super cool and will be great for beach digging. My husband was super excited to receive them. I do think there should be a discount for buying two since they don't come in a set.

          I haven't seen them in action on the beach hence the four stars, but my nephew certainly loved that I bought him two, (because I thought an adult or another child would like to use them if it worked well and because the price was perfect) because when he put them both on at the same time he said he looked like he had "Bumblebee arms" and he was really excited the other kids at the party wouldn't stop wearing the "arms" either.

            All the photos are with a child that has 2 of these shovels. There is only one. A bit pricy for only one but it does seem to be well made.

                    The pictures showed kids playing with TWO of the hand trux and it sounded like they came as a pair but really it's only one, i was disappointed and i wish I would have been told I would only receive one and not two.

                      I bought this for my Grandson who turned 6. He loves to play on the beach. I know He will like this because he loves to be creative. I saw him play with one of those digging "play" Machines at the park. I thought this will be so much better because he can control it with his arm. It's made in the USA. I almost bought one for myself. Ha.

                        I bought the hand truxs for my grandsons. We saw them at a park in Panama City Beach, FL. They had so much fun I thought I would get one for them. I even bought one to keep at our Condo for the beach fun.

                          My four year old nephew loves construction equipment so I thought he might enjoy "being" an excavator! (I paired the Handtrux with a strap- on head lamp for the full affect) He had a blast digging in the snow with his grandpa! A little expensive. They should be sold two in a set as opposed to individual items. (You really need two)

                              This is going to be a big hit with little boys. Wish it was for even younger boys too because I can see them just loving this! Great price point too!

                              Pricing seems higher than expected unless it's made from very durable plastic.

                              I hope when it reaches the catalog the marketing is a little less boy-centric. Girls also love to build sandcastles and snowmen, you know?

                              LOVE THIS! I'd buy these for my own kids as well as bday gifts all summer long! $20 is always a great bday gift pricepoint.

                              This is a yes and no, the price is good the gift unique but I don't think a child would play with it for very long.

                              Very good price point but the sleve part looks annoying...would it fit little arms? would it be sweaty? Would it snap off if I scoop too much?

                              I had to take a double take to figure out what we had here at first. But I do think kids would love it. I can certainly picture kids having a grand time building sand castles at the beach. It could go on vacation with the family and kids could use it most anywhere. Kids can be very creative,and I think it would get their creative juices going.

                              I would use this at the beach or in the snow. It seems like it would be fun to use and make it easier to build things.

                              It's a cute idea, but the sleeve part doesn't look practical for use in snow. It doesn't appear to fit over sleeves (the boy in the photo has his sleeves pushed up above the top). Wouldn't work well with a heavier parka.

                              I can see a dozen ways for this to wrong ... things get shoved into fingernails (esp at beach), they don't fit and I hear constant whining about how they're falling off, etc. What's wrong with the old fashioned bucket and shovel? Some things really don't need improvement.

                              Honestly I will buy these for my kids to help them build their snow forts and tunnel through snow piles. These will be great and my boys will think I'm a rock star for getting them.

                              Creative marketers remove creative play and thinking from kids of all ages. A shell or other found objects do the same thing. Let's not train our kids to love a new gizmo, let's engage them to seek new possibilites.

                              Both my daughter and my son would love this, especially for the beach, but also in the yard/sandbox. And also just as an imagination game prop too, like a costume.I'm assuming it's $18 for 2? Otherwise it might be a tad pricey.

                              Heck ya!! I have no problem with my kid getting dirty! The toy seems like fun so if it got broken, I could replace it easily. The price is wonderfully agreeable too!

                              they would seem to be difficult for young children to use

                              Great idea for kids but would love to see one for adults in a more subatantial material for gardening. I have arthritis in my hands and I think this would be great to use instead of my trowel which is hard to hold sometimes. But this does look like something my grandkids would enjoy for the sand, especially the younger ones.

                              I agree with Suzanne-who says girls wouldn't enjoy this also. Hopefully she wouldn't tease her little brother joyfully.

                              Warning to all parents, grandparents, etcetera: This looks like an accident about to happen! Can't you see your darling cherub scooping up a glop of sand or whatever and swinging it over his shoulder right into someone's eyes? Check your insurance.

                              I remember when this product was being developed. It's a great concept. I have an internet company that features Made in America products and I think it's a good item. Have you seen kids actually using it? I would be interested in seeing that.

                              it seems they would be messy and hard to clean out the sand. I don't see how it would be better than a shovel, but maybe a test is needed for this one.
