Rawr! Crash! Boom! Are all phrases I’ve been hearing from across the room quite often. In our house it can only mean that my adventurous, fun-loving little boy is building things up and crashing things down with some sorta creature in tow. He will take just about anything that’s lying around and make something simply amazing. No bells, whistles, lights or other prompts to get him started. His imaginative adventures are always so intriguing and I’m glad he often likes to include me in on them.
In the past, I’ve mentioned the Dino Construction Company here on my blog. Those neat dino toys that also double as construction vehicles have lasted for many years. Each toy still remains a few of my sons absolute favorites to play with both in and outdoors. I’m excited to share that there are a few new toys in this line which stick to a similar theme but are smaller in size. We were sent two about a month ago to share our thoughts and experiences on.
The durability of the cement mixer is good. My son tends to put a lot of pressure and force into his toys. The plastic isn’t the strongest but the fact it’s still in once piece wins my praises. The wheels on the bottom of the cement mixer vehicle dinosaur leaves tracks when it goes across damp dirt or sand. The mouth of the dino opens and closes which is perfect for carrying construction pieces or scooping up dirt. The cement mixer turn to the left and right and lifts up so the sand can go down the tail into the desired area.
As a parent, I appreciate it’s completely kid-powered with no batteries needed. I like it’s withstanding play and that it can be paired with other sets from the Dino Construction line. It’s an excellent choice that promotes all sorts of wonderful things like story-telling, exploration, and developing fine and gross motor skills.
