Product Description

Re-enacts a child-favorite real-world sight and encourage discussion.

Children will be eager to take the wheel of his familiar vehicle in a playful re-enactment of one of their favorite sights: the arrival of the trash or recycling pickup and the lift of the big arm as it hauls away the trash! Whether children imagine the truck hauling away cans and bottles or stinky dirty diapers, this adorable set encourages role play, imagination, and discussion about what happens to our refuse after it leaves our homes. What does the recycling symbol mean? What happens to our used-up newspapers when they go to the recycling plant? What is our role in controlling waste? It’s a playful way to raise awareness of important themes . . . and have a great time doing it.

Sturdy wooden pieces fit together, “dump” out, and last for years.

A solid-wood chassis makes this garbage truck extra-durable and easy to grasp; easy-rolling wheels keep playtime moving smoothly. But the sturdy features sure to deliver the most delight are the lift-able arm on the back of the truck and the dump-able rubbish bin that fits in its fork. Raise and tip the bin, and a chunk of rubbish drops out into the truck! The “rubbish” is a single block of solid wood, so it’s easy to place in the bin, tip out, and reload.

Designed to engage playful preschoolers and constructed with care to withstand their harshest treatment, this durable play set is made of durable, child-safe materials and safety tested to our most rigorous standards, so parents and caregivers can feel confident that this wonderful “trash” is anything but.

My 21 month old son received this as a Christmas gift, and it was the ONLY gift he wanted to play with! It's such a simple concept - a wooden garbage truck with wheels that move and moveable arms on the back that lift the dumpster and dump the "garbage" into the truck compartment. Yet, my son is completely enamored with it. He repeatedly dumps the garbage in, takes it back out, and dumps it back in. I don't really know why, but this toy is a hit! (I should mention that he also loves anything to do with garbage - that may be part of it.) 5 stars for another quality Melissa & Doug toy.

My 2 year old son is obsessed with all trucks, esp. garbage trucks. He loves this one, but here's the problems I have with it. 1) The green dumpster is not attached, it just slides into the yellow prongs. So unless your toddler is has alot of patience, it coming off every time gets old quick. I ended up super-gluing the dumpster onto the prongs, but even that comes off every month or so, so it has to be done again. 2) The garbage block that slides down into the dumpster only goes in ONE way. I mean literally side A only. my 2 year old still hasn't figured this out, so we have to put ping pong balls in the bin for him to dump into the back, because he gets so frustrated trying to get the block in exactly right.

As an adult, I find it funny that there's a recycle symbol on the side and the block that goes with it has obvious garbage painted on it...lol.

I probably wouldn't buy this again for a child under two, but he does play with it alot, with the modifications I made.

It's a garbage truck, what could be better to a 3 year old boy? We love the Melissa and Doug toys, and were thrilled to find this one. For a little boy who crawled around with his tiny hot wheels pick up truck, putting miniscule pieces of floor crud in it, saying "dis one is garbage... dis one is garbage..." for something like 45 minutes, well, this garbage truck was an awesome gift!

My son received this toy as a present when he turned one. He loves to push it around the house. My older son (2.5 years) likes this toy even more. You can have the truck lift the dumpster to dump the recycling block into the truck. My older son is able to manuever the pieces to do this while my one year old cannot. When other children visit they like to play with it as well. It's been a nice, quiet toy to have around the house and great for imaginative play.

The garbage bin does not hold tight to the prongs. But I added a 1/2 " pc of soft velco (with sticky backing) to each prong and that holds the bin on better!

Grandson 2 1/2 year old loved it. We got some small nuts in shell, little glass pebbles and other stuff to make a pretend garbage so he can collect them and put it inside the truck. He can play a long time with this truck amazed how it works.

I bought this toy for my son, it got there on time. It's a good size for a 2 (almost 3) year old. He's playing with it hard and loves it. The only problem I have is that the lift will pop off if you play with it too hard. They should have rethought how they constructed that part since kids of that age range are quite rambunctious. I am satisfied for the price though.

This is a well made toy and has given hours of fun. It's not everyday that you come across a garbage truck. I think it is great!
