Here’s a great place to start your gardening adventure with kids: this affordable set includes three tools and a tote bag. We liked the overall quality and it’s hard to beat the value here.
Quick safety reminder: these gardening sets are for kids aged 5 and up. Why? Because the tools often have sharp edges. Also important: store these tools inside your home or garage. If left out in the elements, they will rust and wooden handles may split . . . just like adult gardening tools!
What We Liked
• Three tools: trowel, shovel, rake.
• Good quality.
• Super cute.
What Needs Work
• Tote bag is small. Yes, it holds the garden tools—but that’s about it!
• Handles can fall off with rough handling. We didn’t have a problem with this, but see reports online that if the kids are rough in handling the tools, the wooden handles can fall off.
