Graptor Litterpicker

Product Code: LP1227

GraptorGraptor GripGraptor Handle

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 kids litterpicker is child-sized length to make the activity safer, as too long or too short can be awkward, making Litter picking a harder past time which in turn may encourage children to pick things up with their hands. 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 the child 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.

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

“Great quality product, the kids think the Graptor is wicked!”
