I bought the shovel thinking my 3 yr old son could help shovel snow. It broke after the first time using it. Instead of using screws to secure the yellow handle and shovel to the black plastic, it has a single staple. I have since added two bolts and duct tape so that we could get more use out of it.

I always assumed Ames made good products. I will take a closer look next time.

Great product for preschoolers up until age 5-6 I would think. Pretty sturdy for a toy shovel too

Reasons this is a great product:

1.) Size: It is small enough and easy enough for a child to handle. But it's not so small that it's comical.

2.) Durability: Children are rough on everything. Shoveling snow is no exception. My family's had this product for three winters of heavy snow and my kids keep on keeping on.

3.) Color: Yellow's just the best for kids' toys.

Great product and a great price. Your kids will love it.

Very durable! I like to use it myself to clear off smaller spaces like my front steps. Both of my boys (4 & 3) love to use it. They are actually helpful with it too!

I bought this for my 7 year old so he could help shovel the driveway when it snows. It's a great size for him, and he really likes it.

We bought this as a gag gift for a friend and so I wasn't too worried about quality. But when it arrived, I was happily surprised. It would make a great winter toy for a little boy or girl and seems sturdy enough to last through some rough play.

This is a cute shovel for my almost 3 yr old. Pretty sturdy. My son is very rough with things and did a lot of shoveling snow with this and it's still intact. I found this to be expensive for comparable items in the stores, but I waited until mid winter to get him a shovel and by then all stores were sold out.

I think this may be ok for kids. This is not a very substantial shovel. I like to use smaller tools to do yard work and want the same performance from smaller tools as I get from "adult" tools. This one is not very good for serious work.

This is a kids shovel, don't expect it to do any heavy lifting. The plastic isn't thick enough to do real work, but if what you want is something to occupy the little ones while you do the real shoveling, this is perfect.

My son loves having his own snow shovel so that he can go out and help us clear the driveway and walkways. This shovel held up great for the past snowy winter. My son was sad when we had to put it away for the season!
