This snow shovel is probably the #1 most played with toy in our house (for the last two years — winter and summer). In the summer it’s all about the sandbox, in the winter it’s all about snow removal (outside our house, mostly). Alex’s favorite game is summarized in the photo above — I push him in the stroller while he “snow plows” — we get mostly adoring looks on the sides walks of the upper west side. And, I have to say, I feel pretty kick ass when I come to a slushy, impassable street crossing and I whip out the shovel and get down to business. NB: The shovel slides into the back of our MaClaren perfectly for storage or long block hauls.
