Much bigger than I thought from photos
on June 4, 2013
This is a really cute sand toy set - and much bigger and more fun than I had guessed by the photos. The construction workers (both adorable - one a girl, the other a guy) can "ride" the truck, the roller, or the shovel -- as there is a hole in each worker that fits into a spot in each of the "vehicles." The dump truck really dumps... and the orange things (I don't know what they are really called) have holes in them - so they can pour sand (or even be used in the bathtub). My daughter loves using the rolling tool with play doh too...but it's fun on the sand. That is the only piece I've had a little problem with - b/c the black roller keeps popping out of the yellow handle part, but it's a super quick fix...just a little frustrating for my 2.5 year old. The piece where you can pour sand in the black basket thing propped up by the yellow supports doesn't let enough sand down to make it engaging too. You really need to use your hand to get it to sift the sand through. We like this and also the Melissa & Doug cupcake sand set. We use both with Moon Sand, which is a HUGE MESS but really a lot of fun. Can you tell this is my first child? HA!
