I love many things about this truck: it teaches my son about recycling, it has recyclables on the packaging, it’s made by a great company, the back “dumper” part tips up for different kinds of play, it’s a great size for toddler hands, and it’s pretty durable. My son loves this truck! The only thing I’m not crazy about is that it doesn’t roll – the axles don’t have the right friction or something. When pushed, it just slides across the floor. It’s not a deal breaker though, the pros outweigh it for us.
My 16 month old is obsessed with trash, the garbage man, trucks and all related things. He adores this truck. We cut up bits of recycling for him to play with and put in the different slots. He likes that he can find them after by lifting up the back flap of the truck. I love the subdued colors and eco friendlyness.
I sent my two-year old grandson this truck for his birthday, and it was definitely a hit. However, I didn’t make any friends with the other relatives because after he opened this truck, he wasn’t interested in any other presents! His parents love it too because it is sturdy and engaging, and it gives them an opportunity to teach their son about saving our Earth!
I gave this as a holiday gift for a 3 year old. He absolutely loved it. The cutouts on the box are great – sturdy enough to withstand play, and easy to recycle. This is a good sized truck, great for toddlers and preschoolers. Definitely worth buying!
Trying to teach our child about being green, this is a great toy. The fact it is made of recycle materials is awesome. The packaging cardboard has cutouts for specific recyclables: newspapers, plastic bottles, etc. And they slide into the appropriate labeled ’recycle bins" – great learning tool, and fun for kids!
