Behind the design

To try out the digging arm, our testers scooped up everything from candy to pillows to bouncy balls. One tester even scooped their favorite toys to clean up their playroom!

    My 4 year old helped me put this together and he wore it for Halloween for two years in a row! We got so many compliments everytime we went out for a Halloween event. It's not flimsy, it's still going fairly strong but falling apart a little, which is to be expected after what it's been through. Thanks to whoever thought of this!



    My 2.5 year old insisted on being an excavator for Halloween. This kit was excellent: she loved every step of this from assembling the arm, painting the box, and putting on the treads. It was the hit of every Halloween event we went to and definitely held up to all the use. It was also light enough for her to wear for 2.5 hours. The only 'problem' is now she wants more projects.



    Our 3 yo loved this! Great product overall. Could be enhanced by placing rubber bands in scoop to make it actually work to pickup light weight things. I added them myself and it worked.

    This was perfect for my sons costume and for him to play with. Although he was too little to put it together himself, this was perfect for Halloween. My only complaint would be is that the digger part was a little front heavy. I just put some sand in a bag to balance it out a little. Highly recommend, totally worth your money.



    This was a fantastic hit. The arm is articulated and worked well. The kids loved their costumes. ( they played with it a bit too much and the arm fell off one of the boxes) It was easy to put together. I spray painted the boxes and we got lots of compliments.



    This was fantastic! I will say after using the levers a bit the box started to get worn through, but nothing a little extra tape can’t fix! It was also cute to watch my child try to bend over to grab things or go up stairs for trick or treating at different houses.
