    I'm looking to add a small wooden boat or vehicle to our outdoor space, the kind that's buried partway in the grass so it doesn't move. I'm not handy so will not be building it myself. I'm happy to pay for shipping from wherever. Anyone have a recommendation for where to purchase something like this?

    I put a wooden row boat in our large sand box. I purchased it through Facebook market place. It lasted a couple of years but the weather and wear and tear it got from the kids made it a hazard so we had to remove it.

    The kids loved it so I tried to replace it. While I loved the wooden element, it is difficult to find boats that aren't expensive. I tried to see if someone had one that was no longer sea worthy but no luck. I eventually found a Little Tykes boat bed frame on Facebook market place. It is plastic but it is well loved and will last a long time.

    We have this one from Community Playthings but we use it indoor. The children love it.
