TOYDOZER (pictured above)

All those pesky small toy pick ups (Legos!) become a snap with this clever mom-invented item. The Toy Dozer lets you (or the kids) scoop up items and dump them back in their bins. Hold the base in one hand, the scoop paddle in the either and shovel in. Awesome. Available in blue and purple, too, and made in the U.S.A.
