Heading to the beach this summer? Forget the bog standard bucket and spade – there’s a new gang in town. Quut is a Belgian brand producing what are undoubtedly the coolest beach toys ever. Essentially reinventions of three traditional tools, there’s the Ballo bucket, £12.99, Scoppi spade, £17.99, and Triplet rake, £7.49, these are stylish in the extreme and extremely hardwearing and practical, too. All are made from BPA-, phthalates- and latex-free recyclable materials making them eco-friendly as well as aesthetically pleasing. You can order now for dispatch on 28 June from toy emporium Toyella – I’ll be snapping up a set for our week in Norfolk and I’m sure they’ll be the envy of all on Thornham beach.
