We don't live anywhere near the beach (sadly) but we do love to spend time there. We also have a dam that comes onto our property so while we talked to the big kids about beach specific safety such as swimming between the flags, we also opened up a conversation about safety around all bodies of water, and in particular the need for them to be aware of their younger siblings trying to copy them.

photo taken, he DOES NOT WANT HIS PHOTO TAKEN ;)
My Little Mate loves the toys themselves, the buzz of the retracting rope totally floats his boat! And while the actual message may be a little lost on him right now I appreciate that my older children have taken an interest and are hopefully a little more aware themselves now. They role play scenarios with their other toys and I like that a lot.
