My little grandson loves garbage trucks. He's even told me that's what he's going to be so when I saw this Tonka garbage truck I had to buy it for him. Its provided him with hours of entertainment. Its a Tonka like my old trucks that I use to play with but the old metal trucks are gone and replaced by heavy duty plastic. Overall, its a sturdy truck with moving parts. It dump trash into the top of the truck and you can empty it from the back of the truck and it has a voice box that says a few things real trash men would say. Its Tonka strong and made to last. Well worth the money.
My son will be 4 in December and we bought this for him just over a week ago. I wanted to wait a bit to review it just in case. He went into this already garbage truck crazy. When he saw this in the store, he fell in love with it. I had made him some "garbage" trucks using other toys and shoe boxes, and he was mostly happy with those, so I thought he deserved this one once he saw it. He has played with it and nothing else non-stop since we bought and he just loves it. I think it is pretty cool too. I enjoy playing with him and it. The forks work with batteries, and though I was worried they wouldn't last 5 minutes, they have been really good. The thing works very well. It has back-up beeps, a truck horn, and voice statements. The hopper raises up to dump the trash. It has two little figures, but they freak him out a bit so we hid them in a drawer. If you have a child who chases trash trucks down the street, then this is for them.
