Holes for screw are too small, putting the truck together is difficult.

I will definitely buy more of the same kits from Melissa and Doug, I've always been very pleased with their toys.

Buy for an older child or buy for a younger child, as long as there's someone handy to put it together!

We actually bought this on accident. We didn't realize that you had to build the toy so we bought it for our 2 year old son. Needless to say, daddy had to put it together. It took daddy over an hour and he's handy. However, daddy enjoyed it immensely.

That being said, now that it's put together, our 2 year old son ADORES this truck. He plays with it every day and is his favorite toy. The truck is durable and well-made (if daddy does say so himself). Our son pushes it all over the house. It also has a little magnet on the part where the trash goes. So you stick the toy trash bin to the magnetized part and the child can then turn the lever to put the "trash" into the garbage truck.

Really great for truck-lovers. Buy for an older child or buy for a younger child, as long as there's someone handy to put it together!

After reading the other reviews on Amazon, I fully expected to spend an hour or more putting this truck together. My 3-year old anxiouly assisted me (mostly by screaming "let's put the wheels on now!"), but we had a great time building it. I wouldn't say this was any more difficult than a bookshelf from Ikea.

My gripes would be that some of the holes were drilled a little bit off so all the pieces are a bit askew when assembled. But the bigger problems were that a few of the drill holes were too small (not a big deal), or too big (kinda a bigger deal) and required a little fill to make the screws stay in. Then the dowels for the wheels were bent so that they were hard to fit into the slots and of course made it impossible for the wheels to spin properly after assembly. But wait... maybe the wheels couldn't spin properly because they are all of slightly different sizes!

What a disappointment. My son still loves the truck, and the price is right, but I would've gladly paid a little more for a better manufactured product.

Our 2yr old is enamored with trash trucks - therefore, we picked this up for his birthday gift. Since our tot is too young to assemble the truck, my husband, a professional bicycle mechanic, was charged with putting it together before the party. It took my mechanically capable husband almost 2 hours to assemble it. However - it was completely worth the effort. This was (and, a month later, still is) our toddler's favorite toy. He loves the fact that it comes with a trash can and trash that dump into the truck - just like a "real" trash truck. I would, without hesitation, recommend this toy...just allow yourself some time for assembly. :)

I purchased this for my son who LOVES garbage trucks. He loved putting this together with his dad. It was easy to assemble and very durable. If your son is into building things, try out this collection (there are other vehicles to choose from). You won't go wrong with this toy!

Great truck. Time consuming to put together but well worth the effort. A child's imagination is something to watch while they play with this STURDY truck. It has already outlasted the plastic trucks.

I bought this truck for my 2 year old son for Christmas, and we both love it. I'm thrilled with a toy with this kind of solid feel that fits my boys spirited play and also sparks his own imagination to create his own engine noises and "back-up alerts"....He loves it because it is rugged, (like a toy truck should be),it's painted in great colors, and it can load and dump the "trash" the way he sees it done during the week.
It will take a handy person 1-1.5 hours to assemble. I'd also recommend that you sparingly apply some Elmers as you assemble and take an extra half hour to do so. It'll just be that much more durable in the end.

My grandson loves to watch the neighborhood garbage truck when we take our walks. So when I found this toy I decided to get it despite some of the bad reviews.
It does take some time to build (about an hour), but I found the finished truck to be sturdy and durable. My grandson really enjoys playing with his new garbage truck. It is one of his favorite toys!

My special needs three year old son got this for Christmas. He built it with a little help from his dad in about an hour. He enjoyed it so much we're buying the rest of the sets for his birthday!
