Just before I left for Islamabad, Pakistan I made a few new sandbox toys for my granddaughters. This is my own design that fits little hands. No exotic woods used here, just scraps from under the bench that are glued together and made KID TOUGH. I got to see them in use and they work just fine.

Those are all good looking and functional sandbox toys Doug. I bet the kids will have a good time playing with them. Nice detail too!
Stay safe my friend!

Cool toys for the grandchildren to have fun with. Hurry home and be safe. I spent some time in the Middle East and understand the challenges.
