**GIVEAWAY ALERT** Having two little boys is a blast! Everyday I am more and more convinced that I was made to be the mother of boys. I love the way their little brains create extravagant pullies and “traps” with just some string and tape and an empty frenchfries container (this happened last night before bed). I love watching them play and grow and let their imaginations set the stage for their next battle between Batman and the evil farm animals that are taking over the castle (also happened last night).
As much as I love my little boys, I DO NOT love cleaning up after them. The LEGOS and the mountains of action figures and now we have entered the world of StarWars Pod Fighters (think PolyPockets for boys- awesome and super fun but very, very tiny). At the end of the day, my living room and the playroom and their bedroom looks as if a literal battle has occurred there. Enter the Toydozer. It is a mega-time saving clean-up tool that every mother of lego-loving boys should not be without.
You mothers of little girls out there, you know you need this too. Between the PolyPockets and the craft stuff and beads and doll house toys (help me out moms!- what do you struggle to pick up??), this tool could come in super handy. It is like a giant, sturdy dustpan (the scoop) with a lightweight gatherer (which attaches with Velcro when not in use). With just a few scoops of the Toydozer, clean up is done in half the time. And the boys love to do it themselves!! Even better! It is like mixing cleanup with playing trucks to make it more of a novelty and I’ll take it!
Toydozer creator Amy Bradley is the mom to 7-year-old Henry and she explains the idea for her genius invention. “At the end of a long day, I dreaded cleaning up all of my son’s toys — whether it was trains, safari animals, Duplo blocks or LEGOS — spread out all over the floor,” Amy says. “After some brainstorming, I came up with a simple tool that made cleaning up easy and fun for all of us and the Toydozer was born!”
The Toydozer retails for $18.99, ships free anywhere in the United States and Canada and is available exclusively on the toydozer.com website. It comes in three vibrant colors: blue, yellow and purple.
You can also win one here!! I have a yellow Toydozer to give away! Leave a comment telling me which toys you loathe cleaning up the most. I will choose a winner on June 10th and notify the winner via e-mail.
Face it. We’ll probably never love clean up time. But at least the Toydozer makes it faster. And faster is good.
I was given samples of the Toydozer for review purposes and one to giveaway. I was not paid at all for this post. All opinions and words are expressly my own and were not influenced in any way by Toydozer and those representing them.
