My 4 year old loves to play with these Garden Tools. We have already planted some apple seeds and he loves to go out and see if it has grown.  He asks me every day when he goes outside if he can take the tools.  I love them because he has his own tools and doesn't have to use mine.  I also like that they come in their own case so he can easily keep them together.
