How to Choose Which Children’s Gardening Tools to Buy

With an ever-increasing range of children’s gardening tools now available here is a rough guide of some of the things to consider before making your purchase.


For the younger children we recommend plastic garden tools, while these are still acceptable for older children you could consider metal tools for older children who are taking their gardening more seriously.


Kids garden tool sets now come in a wide variety of colours. While you could opt for a sunshine yellow, or a grassy green we find that the most popular colour choices are boys’ blue and girls’ pink.

The most popular tool is always the spade or trowel which can be used in the garden just how it would be used in a child’s sandpit.

Funnily enough the next most popular item appears to be a watering can, while this is not reflected in all the kids garden tool sets on offer it seems to be the item which most used by children after the trowel.

Other items you can expect to find are a garden fork, a rake and either a garden tool bag or case to carry everything in.

Where will it be used?

If you can set aside part of your garden solely for the children then it is less likely that they will cause any damage trying to “help” you with the rest of your gardening!

A little sign with the child’s name on it will make them very proud of their own little garden, encouraging them to work hard on it and learn more about gardening along the way.


Today you can pick up a small set of gardening tools for only £10, although expect to pay at least double this for a higher quality set scaled-down adult tools for your more experienced serious child gardener.


We think that there is now a great range of children’s gardening tools available to suit every budget. So buy those garden tools for your children and let them become the green-fingered experts of tomorrow.
