Beach buckets and spades

    Recommended Posts

    Due to a slight mis-communication before we left the UK our beach stuff (buckets, spades, balls etc) was given away. We're now looking to replace it here and have found some really cheap stuff in Big W and Cheap as Chips but on our first outing with the new buckets today they cracked - so to get to the point; does anyone know where we can buy some decent buckets and spades that will stand up to some serious pebble lugging and sand castle tapping?

     

    I've had a quick look at ELC online and the buckets similar to the ones we left behind are $10 here, £2 on the UK one - cheaper to buy those and get them posted bearing in mind we need at least 3? Or will stocks get better as the weather does?

     

    Thanks, Zeb

    I bought a ELC set from kids central at marion & they sell ELC toys, however, that also cracked & the handle fell off after a couple of uses!! Theres also Toys R Us to try..
