My 2 year old grandson adores garbage trucks. He describes in great detail how they pick up the bin, dump the trash into the truck, then go to the dump to dump all the trash. So this toy was a no-brainer for him. It is well made and comes with 2 bins, which delighted him. The cab of the truck raises so the driver can go in and out. And the back end of the truck box lifts so the trash can be deposited into the truck.
However, when my grandson dumped the trash into the truck, all of the things he placed in the trash bin did not come out. And often the bin itself went into the back of the truck.
That however was not the biggest disappointment. Garbage trucks dump trash at the dump. In order to do that, the bed of the truck needs to lift like a dump truck to dump the trash out. The bed of this truck is stationary. The only way you can dump out the trash from the back is to lift the entire truck into the air and turn it 45 degrees so it is upside down and the trash falls out.
I guess I just assumed the box of the truck would lift to dump the trash and I am pretty disappointed that it does not.
If that's not important to you, then as just a truck, this toy is fine.
