Suren loves helping. He goes around the house saying: “I need to help you! I am a good helper!”
Whether it is cooking, cleaning or vacuuming he is the first to volunteer! His most favorite of all is helping in the yard using his toy gardening tools.
Last year my husband landscaped the yard of our new house. One day while he was working, Suren ran to his dad and said “Me help daddy!”. I am pretty sure this was the first three word sentence he has ever said and it was really cute! Hubby was so excited that gave him a small shovel to help out. I ran to the back yard to grab his gardening tools and he was occupied for the next hour!! That is when I got a break to sit down and have my tea!
His gardening tools are actually one of his favorite outdoor toys. He plays with them for a very long time. He uses them to pretend play with plants and also he uses them to load up his dump truck.
When I was looking to buy his tool set I did not even give it a second thought when I saw Melissa & Doug brand have a set. It is very cute too! I love that it comes with a belt and gloves. The only downside is that this set does not come with a fork. So I did look for another set that I can buy and since my son loves shoveling I actually bought him both! See below for the other set!
What I love about this set is the combination of wood and metal material. The wood handles feels amazing to touch and the metal heads make them very sturdy. These are very practical tools but should be used for kids 3 years old and up.
