Not flower petals or fabric - but brightly coloured, that's for sure.

A row of plastic... is closer, a lot closer - but not sleds

lilyalli is correct! Shovels... or as we would say in the UK, spades - of the seaside variety.

Wow! Lucky guess! I was going to put spades, but thought that shovels would be more inclusive.

LOL, they're spades from Brighton so UK English seems okay. Though why they sell them there when there's no sand for miles, I don't know!

It's what I'd call a spade -- to me a shovel is more like a snow shovel, square-ish. Anyway, they certainly are colorful. I wonder if the paint helps to keep it from rusting when they are dirty and wet.

And Picquero, I knew! I'd seen those things before! When I was looking back at the thread, once I saw the suggestion handbags, I knew what they were. Not too common, but I'll bet they'd be handy.

No it isn't a paddle boat.
Thought I would put the lovely face of my Gnawra in there for a while...
