Worthless for digging
on October 25, 2014
It's useless...the notch that is supposed to hold up the bucket handle is so tiny and weak - just a plastic indentation - that the digger part slips right past it and falls down...even when me or dad try it.
1. As soon as you try to dig into sand, the bucket arm drops past the indentation and empties the contents - when you don't want to.
2. With the old Tonka diggers, you could use one hand to dig and dump. This one you have to use two hands to dig and dump - so you can't keep your hand on the back of the truck. What's wrong with these manufacturers that the quality gets so much worse with time?
Wish I had time to send it back !! But with an active boy and a baby, I can just see it growing dust in the corner. This is a lot of money to spend for a toy that is so badly made. I would have expected a company like Tonka to be trustworthy.
I can't seem to find a good digger anywhere.
