The Toydozer – Giveaway

We have approximately 4,728,193 Legos in this house. So when I received an e-mail about reviewing a fun toy called The Toydozer – an innovative product that allows parents and kids to spend less time cleaning and more time playing – I was all, where do I sign up?

From the Toydozer website:

Toy clean up time is often as tedious as it is time-consuming, but yet it remains a necessary evil of parenting. With the Toydozer, your days of crawling helplessly around on the floor picking up every last tiny toy piece are over. This innovative new product promises to make the clean up process fun and efficient for both parents and kids.

The Toydozer is simple and easy to use, and the results are dramatic. The “gatherer” is designed to work like the blade of a bulldozer and the “scoop” is modeled after a bulldozer scoop. Users hold on to the “gatherer” to collect small toys into the lightweight “scoop” and then dump the toys into their respective toy bins or containers. With just a few scoops of the Toydozer, clean up time is over in no time.

Stevie [and his Legos] had the chance to put the Toydozer to the test.

It honestly took me longer to get my fingers in place on my camera than it did for him to get this pile of Legos picked up. In fact, after three or four attempts to get some good pictures for this post, he asked, “Do you need me to do it slower?” My response was, “Yes, that will help a bunch!”

 And as an added bonus, he enjoyed using the Toydozer to get the job done.

The Toydozer retails for $18.99, ships free anywhere in the United States and Canada. The product is available exclusively on the website. It comes in three vibrant colors: blue, yellow and purple. Each Toydozer features orange Velcro tabs that attach the gatherer to the scoop when not in use for easy storage.


The kind folks at the Toydozer have graciously offered to provide a Toydozer for giveaway. In addition, I’ll be giving away one Toydozer also. To enter, simply leave a comment telling me what types of toys you’ll be picking up if you win the Toydozer.

    Since my 2 daughters are 16 and 20 and I do not have a lot of toys to pick up anymore, I would give it to my friend who has 2 yr old twin boys. They are red-headed delights. There favorite toys lately are cars so i would assume she would be picking up a lot of toy cars in addition to lots of legos.

    I would use it to pick up Legos, Polly Pockets, Barbie shoes, Army men, and anything else I might curse about in the middle of the night after penetrating my foot.

    If I could add handles to each piece, it would be perfect for a pooper scooper! My kid-sized purple hoe and a dustpan aren’t the most efficient things in the world.

    But seriously – I’d give this to my 85 year old grandmother because she’s spent many hours picking up legos and other toys long after the precious (insert sarcasm here) great-grandson has gone home. He’s a bit spoiled.
