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.
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.
