I spend a lot of time asking W to clean up his toys. And I spend even more time picking them up myself. I know, I know... I'm taking the easy way out and he's learning nothing. But, sometimes the fighting just isn't worth it. He helps clean up at preschool (or so his teachers say), so he is clearly capable of doing it. For now doing it at home just isn't that much fun, I figure.

So, when I was given the opportunity to review a new tool made to make clean up easier for me and the kiddies... I jumped. We need help. We received the Toydozer, which is a product that both parents and kids can use to make clean up easier and more fun. The Toydozer has two parts: a "gatherer" and a "scoop" designed to collect small toys.

It's easy to use. I used it and had W give it a try. He's a little young for it, as it's really designed for kids over five. However, I think a coordinated four year-old would be able to use it easily. I felt like the toys we were cleaning up were too big, but here is W cleaning up with the Toydozer:

Here we are scooping into the gatherer. The pile behind him could use an actual bulldozer.

He wasn't coordinated enough to get it into the bin, but he tried.
The Toydozer would be awesome for dealing with a pile of little Lego's, rather than super hero figures and farm animals. I am positive the Toydozer will be a very useful companion when the boys are in their Lego stage. We were also using it on carpet, which worked just fine -- But I think it would be best on hardwood floors. I imagine it would also work well for klutzy crafters (which clearly I am not).

Here's the fun thing... I have a Toydozer to give away to one lucky, lucky reader! And I also have a discount code to share (BLOGGER20 will get you 20% off on Toyzdozer.com).

Don't really need one yet, but I am sure it would come in handy soon enough.

This would be a big help in cleaning up legos

A great idea for the many toys my son has.

This would be so helpful with all the action figures, cars and random toys that literally get dumped out of our basement bins. Sometimes the floor looks like a toy land fill so a bull dozer is just what we need to see the carpet again.

This would be great to clean up Lyla's Seasme Street friends as she calls them.

I would love this for all of the metal cars that my dear daughter has inherited from her older brother. Those things are much more of a beast to step on than Legos!
