Beach toys can keep our girls happy for hours. I love the flat-pack plastic beach toys manufactured by Fozzils, and so I’m offering one pack as a give-away for a random reader.

Fozzils Discovery Pack, flat-pack beach toys, October 2012
Six fun toys pack away into their plastic folder.

It wasn’t until we lost some of our pack while travelling in Queensland that I realised how attached I was to this particular set of toys. Each item is well-thought-out, easy to snap together and a cinch to pull apart when it’s time to move on.

Our girls love to play with these toys and use them every time they can!

The pack contains a pyramid-shaped colander, a sturdy shovel, a funnel, a large container, a cylinder and a smaller container. The girls have used them to build castles, dig tunnels, move items from one location to another and ship their toys to a distant land.

I love the way these beach toys are so easy to store when they’re not in use. I’m not trying to fit a set of ill-fitting shovels and buckets into our tiny space. All I need to do is slot away the flat folder!

The large container can be a temporary aquarium for found creatures.

It appears that Fozzils doesn’t offer this flat-pack beach-toy set for sale any longer, but I was able to buy some from an online store in the U.K. I bought an extra as a present from our family to a reader who thinks this could be as good a thing for their family (or a friend) as it is for us.

And good news for everyone else: I’ve been reliably informed that Fozzils will be relaunching their flat-pack beach toys in 2014.
