But Pars Pro Toto’s main reason for redesigning the spade was to offer an alternative to the low-quality versions that sometimes don’t survive a day at the beach. This is why it uses durable plastic and is made by gas injection. This means that the Scoppi is virtually unbreakable and can be used season after season. The toy contains none of the controversial substances, like BPA, phthalates or latex.
Scoppi is also multifunctional. Children can use their hands and feet to shift the sand on the beach. The cavity above the scoop section is a stamping point. Simply push down with your foot, no sharp or breakable edges. The two horizontal bars offer the child a good grip on the spade. The accompanying sifter clicks into the upper cavity. It can be removed with ease, meaning even more fun when building forts and castles and digging canals.
