LEGO® DUPLO® Town Truck & Tracked Excavator 10812:Jump into the rotating cabin of the Tracked Excavator to scoop up the dirt, then load up the truck with tipping function and drive it away. Little diggers will love operating these easy-to-build construction machines. Move the Tracked Excavator over uneven land and dig with its big shovel. Take its working, flexible arm apart to make it shorter and then load up the Truck with its tipping function to drive the rubble away! LEGO® DUPLO® bricks are specially designed to be safe for little hands. Includes 2 construction worker DUPLO figures.
Purchased for my child around the age of 2. Initially the ‘digger’ caused frustration to move, assemble and play with, especially with emphatic movements. However, the set (to be more exact the truck & excavator) has aged well the past 1.5 yrs and is rarely put away. A pity the larger set or this one no longer has a bulldozer.
My boy just turned two, and I bought this set because he is playing almost exclusively with Duplos right now, and we were all getting frustrated trying to build forklifts and bucket loaders with the parts we had from the Number Train and the All-in-one Bucket of Fun. I wish we had bought this earlier. It holds up to his loading and dumping much better than our improvised trucks did. The bucket loader arm, in particular, is so well engineered that it will hold in almost any position. I like that it also came with "hidden wheels" to go underneath the cab, so it can roll (see picture). My only suggestion is that it would be cool if the dump truck basket fit a little more snugly onto the mechanical arm, so it would be possible to make a "cherry picker", also. The bucket does snap on, but the bucket is a little droopy, so you have to position the arm just right to make the cherry picker stay up. If used as intended, however, all the parts fit great, and this is a wonderful set.
Great Legos! My son is in love with all kinds of cars and the excavator and dump truck are great to have as Legos. They work really well, as you'd expect with Legos, the only thing that can be a little touchy is the triangle sign, it doesn't stay on the greatest, it just comes off easy, but that means he keeps learning how to put it back together.
