The first thing we learned, other than that the berries were plentiful, was that my toddler had no interest in picking. However, he was very interested in the part where you put the berries in the bucket. Lucky for us his older sister agreed to be a team with him. She picked and he dropped the berry into the bucket while his brother struck out for parts unknown in search of the largest berries
