Shopping for a toddler can be fun, but also difficult. Toddlers don't really ask for much and often like to play with the wrapping paper and boxes more than the toys. Finding a toy that really captures their interest for more than a short period is not always easy. Luckily Little Tikes has lots of experience in this area. They know just what toddlers want and need. I received the Little Tikes Big Dog Truck to add to the holiday gift guide and I know it will be a big hit with toddlers this year.
The Little Tikes Big Dog Truck is a ride on and walker toy that has 4 modes to play. It can be used as a push walker for toddlers learning to walk. A ride-on for developing motor skills. A wagon for multi play and enhancing motor development. And it can be used as a dump truck for fun play. The Big Dog Truck picks up and dumps boulders (3 are included). The Big Dog Truck makes sounds when it is "eating" the pretend boulders. There are sound effects for enhanced interactivity in the light bar, nose, and handle. Kids can dump the boulders by pushing the smoke stack forward. There is storage under the seat, its a great place to keep the boulders when not using them. This does have an on and off switch. It is made for 1-3 year olds and only 1 child at a time. There is a weight limit of 50 lbs. It does require 3 AA batteries that are not included.
I am excited about this toy. My boys always loved playing with push/ride on toys. But this one is so much more than that. The interactive play is so engaging and fun. The Big Dog Truck has a fun personality. I can see this being a fun toy for a long time. I will be sharing mine with a friends little one. I know he will be able to play with this for hours and years at that. This truck is very sturdy and will last for past my friends son's play I'm sure.
