I like it too I would say toys myself haha as it seems we all have some thing in common playing in dirt, my favourite toy is a long handled weeder with V to pull or cut or turn to the side to losen the weed like a hoe.

I have one of them, its very handy,when my grandchildren were tiny they liked a ride around the garden with nannie pushing, if my grandson is here when I`m using my trolley, he uses it as a skateboard. My favourite garden tool is a fork, the size of a hand fork but with a 4ft handle, its a godsend for using around the borders, and my raised beds.......

Mine is a little seat that can be turned upside-down for kneeling on, and the legs become handles to leaver yourself up with. - great for oldies with bad knees and backes lol

My favorite is a thatching rake, good for clearing weedy areas.

My essentials are long handled pruners and what we call "the adze-y thing". I think it's officially a large hoe, but we use it for clearing ground, chopping up lumps, raking out roots, cutting trenches, clearing ditches.... I bought it in a car boot sale.
That's a nice trolley you have there skipscanda1234, but we have steps all over the place - and a lot of the garden is at or above roof level so I'll just have to envy yours. :-)

I wouldn't be without my little hand fork, my long handled small Spork and my secateurs.
