Graptor Litter picker

Helping Hand – Graptor Litter picker

Especially designed for children and bringing Litterpicking to life, the Graptor kids litterpicker has a dinosaur, or Raptor, imagery as part of the design.

Not only making environmental clean-ups fun, the Graptor is child-sized length 27″ to make the activity safer, as too long or too short can be awkward for little litter heroes. So give them a Graptor!

Making things even easier, the ‘teeth’ on the Graptor jaws are tailored to pick up litter as quickly as possible, and the bright colour helps children see the litter. The comfortable handle also provides the child with a secure grip on the litterpicker. Kids love using the Graptor: litter picking becomes an exciting outdoor learning exercise, and they want to do it again and again!

The Graptor kids litterpicker can form part of a kids cleanup kit for community, home or school activities. Support your little litter hero and join the Graptor squad!

Graptor features:

  • 68cm (27”) length for ease and safety of use
  • Vivid bright design especially to capture the children’s imagination
  • Also available as part of a larger Group, School or Kids Kit!
  • Personalised filler strip branding available on this product
  • Available in Limited Edition Keep Wales Tidy Version

Helping Hand – Handiscoop Pro

Handiscoop ClosedHandiscoop Open

The revolutionary tool that cleans up any dog fouling, wherever you are!

Effective on all types of surfaces, it doesn’t matter where you are – on the beach or on grass – the teeth on the jaw end enable the sand to filter out or the blades of grass to remain on the ground, so you are efficiently left with just the litter, in a playground where it is paramount to keep children’s play areas clean from dog fouling, or on the tarmac of streets and pavements.

The Handiscoop Pro is easily cleanable, and can also be used with poop scoop bags, so the cleaning part is even less of a job! You can load a few bags on at the same time too, so when you next have to collect dog litter, you are already set to go! It saves you time every time.

What’s more, the Handiscoop Pro can be used with or without poop scoop bags!

Handiscoop Pro features:

  • The 81cm (32”) length prevents the need for bending down to pick up dog fouling
  • The shorter length (18″) is ideal for taking with you on walks, journeys or in a vehicle
  • It’s lightweight and portable, so you can take it anywhere
  • It doesn’t matter what surface you are picking up the mess from – sand, gravel, grass – it works a treat anywhere.
  • Can be used with or without poop scoop bags!
