Back in 2022 I made a commitment to no longer order in any buckets & spades made from virgin plastic. This is part of my long standing desire to do the best by our community and by our planet by running as sustainable a beach based business as possible.

Our range of plastic free beach toys have been very popular and these brilliant metal buckets and tool sets are really hard wearing and will last your children for years. The set includes three sand tools: a blue shield end space, red shovel and green rake which are perfect for little hands at home or in the garden.

Your set will also come with a metal bucket with a strong handle with wooden grip, the bucket measures 8" in total. Buckets come in either red or blue and we will choose your bucket colour at random. If you have a preference please add a note at checkout.

The final piece of our beach set is a wooden crab line. Crabbing has been an ever popular past time on the Cornish coast for decades and it's great to see that eco friendly alternatives to the usual plastic line are now available. This wooden handled crab line is wound with hessian string and includes a weighted hessian bag.

Our pocket sized crab line has no sharp hooks making the line safe to use for young children although close supervision is always required near water. With a 10m line, just load up the bag with your chosen bait - bacon rind is the most popular option locally but prawn heads or fish heads or even chunks of frozen fish will work just as well.

This eco friendly gift set makes a great gift for lovers of the sea and would make a thoughtful gift for a child about to embark upon an exciting beach holiday. You can even add one of our beach tote bags for carrying, these are made from recycled plastic bottles!

These would make a great gift for sandpits or gardens so we've also added an option without the crab line.

Please note that these are only available in a discounted set as an online purchase. We sell all these items available separately in the beach shop itself if you are visiting Fowey but this is a great way to pay in advance, avoid the queues and save a few pennies on our beach gift bundle.

We have recently added the option to have your item shipped via Evri (previously known as Hermes).

Returns & refunds

International Shipping

Post Brexit International Shipping has become exceptionally onerous for small businesses, particularly ones like mine which mainly ship domestically. Shipping charges will often vary considerably depending exactly what items are purchased. Your order will be sent via the postage service which most closely matches the amount you have paid for postage. If there is a significant discrepancy we will refund any overpayment and reserve the right to contact you to discuss options in the event of underpayment.

As a small business with minimal margins on our gift products we are unable to absorb shipping costs over and over the amount paid and hope that you will understand this. Unfortunately we are unable to offer a free shipping service internationally.

We will complete the relevant customs forms but will not be responsible for any tax which may be levied for collection within the destination country as this is simply too big and complicated an undertaking for us to deal with when we handle so few international orders. Please make yourself aware of any shipping restrictions pertaining to the destination country. We recommend using this guide before ordering to check that we are able to ship the item you intend to order.
