Title: Child's handheld digging implement

Abstract: A toy digging implement that is worn over the hand of a child. The digging implement simulates the appearance of a backhoe bucket. The digging implement has a set of parallel side walls. A first curved structure is disposed between the side walls defining an open bucket scoop. A second curved structure is disposed between the side walls behind the first curved structure. The second curved structure diverges from the first curved structure near the front of the digging implement. Consequently, the first curved structure, the second curved structure and the side walls define a pocket having an open end at the rear of the digging implement. A child places his/her hand into the pocket to engage the digging implement. The digging implement protects the child's hand and enables the child's hand to simulate the appearance and function of a backhoe bucket.
