I live in Ohio near Lake Erie and less than a half hour from Cedar Point. Going fishing and hanging out at the park are our favorite things to do beside vacationing in Florida with our best friends; which we only get to do every other year. When we do get to do the kids spend hours playing in the sand, or as we call it, “the giant sandbox”. But, I hated that we had to wait between visits to visit the beach. We just found out that we can visit the beach at Cedar Point without having passes or paying. It is a nice, big and very clean beach on Lake Erie and are even able to swim in the water, too! We were lugging to the beach probably 4 bags for 2 kids- sand toys, cooler, towels and extras like clothes, sunscreen and such. I was able to review Beachmate which was able to cut all my bags down to only needing to carry one!
As this has helped us reduce the carrying of our load, it also has multiple uses. It comes with 2 shovels, 1 large bucket, cooler, 2 medium and 2 small buckets and a tote bag to carry it all. The tote bag has several pouches and pockets for keys, phones, sunglasses, lotions and more. It fits firm around the large bucket and bottomless to keep the sand at the beach. The bag is also able to be personalized. Fitting down at the bottom of the large bucket is the cooler which is large enough to fit a day’s worth of food and drink. The cooler is fully lined which makes it easily wipeable. The buckets are extra thick so they prevent breaking. They have heavy duty nylon straps to hold sturdy when carrying heavy loads. Use the large bucket as a table and the small ones as a seat for a fun day at the beach to keep the sand out of your food. Attached to the side of the large bucket is 2 compact heavy duty shovels. These are the toughest shovels on the market. On the other side of the tote bag is 2 Velcro straps to help carry towels or a thin rolled blanket, or attach to a beach chair, or even cart in your beach umbrella without carrying it! It was so much easier and the kids had a blast playing with the buckets and shovels. I suggest purchasing this for your family!
About (taken from website): “As parents and beach lovers, we knew there had to be a better way to prepare for beach days. The joy of relaxing and playing with our four young children was always balanced against the frustration of lugging multiple bags, toys and gear out onto the sand – only to have flimsy beach shovels and buckets break once we got there. Instead of buying the same toys over and over again, we decided to create Beachmate, a system built to last multiple seasons instead of just a few uses. We wanted to create durable, reusable products that are good for the environment, lightweight and easy to carry, offering exceptional organization. Our goal is, and always has been, simple – to enjoy the beach, happy and hassle-free.”
