There are a couple of design issues I have with this truck that make it a bit frustrating to operate. First is the bin dumping setup. It's a bit hard to attach the bin to the lifting piece. My toddler can't do it herself so I have to re-attach it every time it comes off. Then, once it's attached, you have to pull it off just right, with a bit of a twist, so it comes off gently and without snapping something off. A frustrated toddler could easily break it.
The biggest problem, however, is that the back lid of the part that opens to dump the whole truck out, doesn't lock in a closed position when you're not dumping, but swings open whenever you tilt the truck back. Which makes dumping easy, but it also makes emptying the bin into the truck a total pain! That's because the knob that lifts the bin is on the part of the back that swings open. So the act of turning the knob pulls the back open if you're not careful, dumps everything out and tips the whole truck back. And you miss when you dump the bin, because now you've opened the back lid, and you end up dumping the bin on the floor instead of inside the truck. I keep explaining to my daughter how exactly she needs to do it, compensating for the design flaw, and sometimes she can do it, but it's just not a toddler-friendly design.
And the last thing is that when you pump the button and lift the garbage-holding body of the truck back, the bottom of the back lid hits the ground, preventing it from opening, so the truck doesn't actually dump. You have to then pull the lid back a little to free it, and then it dumps. But that kinda kills the buzz of the lifting feature. It would've been so much cooler if you pumped it, it lifted and dumped everything right away! I think it was probably intended to do that, but just doesn't.
All in all, this is quite a decent garbage truck that has been the center of attention of both my daughter and other kids who come to visit. Toddlers love it. However, I think they would've loved it even more if they could operate it entirely by themselves, and if everything worked as I think it was intended to. Right now, I need to be there to intervene when my daughter plays with it and gets frustrated that she can't do it all on her own. And she's at the LET ME DO IT!!!!! age, which really doesn't help... I hope somebody sees this and redesigns this wonderful truck to be even better!
