Now this is just too cool. A big old flatbed truck with a super cool race car. these things are bulletproof and survived many trips down the stairs. And recycled and made in US too. Well worth the money.

We love the concept of this brand of toys and our kids love trucks and race cars. However, the wheels don't turn very well on this truck. The toy has only been used inside, so it's never seen sand or anything that could gunk up the wheels. It's had very poor rolling of the wheels since we got it a couple of months ago. It seems like a manufacturing defect in that the wheels rub on the frame and don't turn very well. So, the truck skids along when pushed with the wheels remaining still, rather than rolling, as it should. If it weren't for this defect it would be a fabulous toy! We also have the recycling truck from this brand and that rolls just fine.

I've got 3 trucks in the Green Toy range and I love them because they are extremely durable (crashed down two flights of stairs and not even a blemish), really fun to push around (the car slides off the truck and is easily portable if you're going on a playdate or car drive). I love the fact that this truck and race car is made entirley of milk cartons and made in the USA. It's BPA and phthalate-free too so your kid can chew on these to their heart's content. And finally, they are SO cost-effective and make great gifts. I can't speak highly of them enough!
The only downside is that the wheels don't run smoothly on hardwood, but we have carpet so that has not impacted us. Other reviewers have found a way round this though.

I like that this product is American made and safe for kids. I bought 2, one for a gift and one for my son.

The Green Toys American made Flatbed Truck and Race Car has been quite the hit with my nearly two year old son and my 4 year old daughter. This toy has provided for hours or imaginative play with lots of rough and tumble play indoors and out. The colors of the car and truck are very eye catching and rich. And the ramp attached to the back of truck has been much fun for my son. He's been putting all sorts of things on the back other than the red sports car to push around and then drop off.

The Flatbed Truck is built to last and I can't imagine it wearing out anytime soon. I think it's great that you are getting two cars for the price of one! We overall highly recommend this product for not just boys but girls too!

I'm a huge fan of Green Toys! We support this company 100% because they are doing wonders in reducing their carbon footprint. They offer a great collection of products made in the USA that are created from food-safe recycled milk jugs that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions! No more worries about what your little one touches or puts in their mouth with these toys as they contain no BPA, PVC, phthalates, or external coatings. Green Toys is doing every thing they can to save energy by focusing on transportation cost even when it comes down to packaging!

Green Toys offers many other wonderful products as well that are all durable, educational, engaging, interactive, and lots of fun! I encourage everyone to check them out!

My 18 month old loves this car/truck set, and we love the fact that it's a green product. There's already soooo much plastic in this world, why not reuse it for everything. Great products, and the little red car is so cool!

We have a number of the Green Toys - the dump truck, tractor vehicle, fire truck and boat. In general we are impressed with the quality of the toys and of course the fact they are made in America from recycled materials. However, the race car on this set is less than impressive. The wheels don't spin well so on hard-surfaces the car spins out, and on the carpet it doesn't go very far. I would recommend some of their other toys rather than this one - the fire truck in particular rolls very well.

First, these are great products from a wonderful company. Our boys have loved everything they make. This one in particular is a great pairing as a flatbed with a race car. What is better is the fact that these are very affordable. We bought the truck truck / car combo for our oldest for his birthday and bought a mirror of the car in a different color for his little brother so they would have something to play together on that day. You can't go wrong with this toy maker.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
My three-year-old son is a huge fan of all things transportation-related. He spends hours each day playing with his cars and trucks, so I was sure this one would be a winner, and I was right. We already own a Green Toys school bus, and a blue race car that seemed very similar to the red one on the truck's bed. As soon as I pulled it out of the Amazon box, my son was nearly beside himself with excitement. Getting the toy out of its packaging was an entirely painless exercise that took, at most, thirty seconds. Just the fact that I don't have to cut a bunch of annoying plastic toys may be enough to win me over, but these toys are not only nicely packaged (in recycled materials), they are also brightly colored, well built, and made of recycled materials in the U.S. I'm pretty strict about which toys I buy for my kids, and this brand passes my tests with flying colors.

When it was out of the package, I discovered that the red race car is the exact same size as the blue race car my son already had. My son was delighted that this meant he could put either the red or the blue car onto the back of the truck. It's a bit hard to tell from the picture, but the race car is a very nice size, much larger than a Matchbox car. This means, of course, that the flatbed is even larger than the race car, a good, big satisfying size that's suitable for pushing around the floor throughout the house. The flatbed on the truck has grooves into which you can fit the race car, a nice detail that keeps the race car in place. The flatbed also tilts, so the car can be rolled off of it. Lastly, I like that this toy is entirely devoid of flashing lights or annoying sounds. It encourages imaginative play, which is essential to a young child's development.

One of the things I really like about these toys is their construction. Though they're lightweight, they are not flimsy by any means. The plastic is very sturdy and will hold up to lots of bashing into walls and general abuse suffered at small hands. The flatbed has large wheels that I think would be quite suited to rolling around a sandbox, though my son plays with his solely in the house. He's had the blue car for more than a year and it still looks as good as the day we bought it. I can't stress enough how impressed I am by Green Toys. This is definitely a company that I can get behind.

Green Toys are just awesome. This one is no exception.

Consistent with the design aesthetic of the other Green Toys, the plastic is smooth, the form is simple, and the product is sturdy. This line is made of recycled plastic - a great environmental ethic from this company, which also includes its simple, recycled packaging - and it's a sturdy, solid plastic.

There aren't a lot of different colors with these toys - this flatbed truck and race car are blue and red and gray and that's it! But that's part of their simple charm, too.

No metal, so no worries about rusting if this gets left outside, or played with in the bath or sink. Really easy to clean, too.

Over the last two years, we've bought most of the entire line of Green Toys (Amazon has some great sales) and have never been disappointed. These have become our go-to gift lately, too.

I hope you found this helpful. Definitely recommend if you're considering this.
