Description

Animal rescue rangers to the rescue! With this rugged safari truck, two cheerful people are ready to zoom across the savannah to help their animal friends. The alligator, zebra, rhinoceros, elephant, giraffe, hippopotamus, and lion fit into the sides of the wooden truck toy through die-cut slots, so this exciting toy is perfect for imaginative play and fine motor skills . . . and much more! Lift and remove the cargo door to unload the colorful animals, then count and stack the solid-wood pieces before loading the truck and securing the door in its track. One male and one female ranger fit in the cab of the truck, or come out to tend to the animals on the preserve. Play ideas are included to reinforce basic skills and inspire creative play.

Q: what country is this toy made in?

submitted by walker - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi, Our toys are manufactured in a number of countries, including the United States. Each one is clearly marked with its country of origin. We have many people in the USA making our toys and have three facilities, including our headquarters, which are staffed by employee’s right here in the United States! Regardless of where each toy is made, we run it through the same rigorous and stringent testing procedure to ensure its safety. We have followed this same testing procedure for the more than 30 years we’ve been in business. Best, Your Friends at Melissa & Doug

Poorly made, wood is chipping/splintered all over the truck right out of the box and got worse from the few minutes of play. Had to take it away as I didn’t think it was safe for my child to play with - could cause cuts and or splinters. Do not recommend!!!

We have quite a few Melissa & Doug toys and generally love them but this isn’t quite up to par. The edges where the animals are cut out of the sides are rough (I had to pull off a few splintering parts after I caught a sharp edge) and the wood dents super easy. We’ve had it a day and already dented and my 14mo isn’t that destructive. Animals and rangers seem fine to keep playing with but maybe we’ll skip putting them in the “rescue” truck. A bit disappointed in quality for price point.

So cheaply made!! My son dropped it from not even a foot in the air while playing and it broke. Not to mention the wood is super rough and could definitely cause splinters.

Lee - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
Was playing with my son today and put my hand inside the truck to get an animal and I got a huge splinter on my hand, it’s been hurting non stop all day! Saw previous reviews stating the same thing! The animals are fine to play with it seems; even though paint has chipped and it hasn’t even been a month, as I purchased for Christmas! Overall I will not let my child play with this toy any longer , I would not want him to have to go through the pain I’ve had to deal with !

I sent this to my granddaughter for her second birthday. Report was that she immediately went to work on it and loved it. The next time I FaceTimed with them (I'm 5600 miles away), it was still out, on their coffee table! A clear sign that it continues to be a source of happy play. And learning! Thank you so much for the thought you put into all your toys.

Paint chips away easily

3 out of 5 stars

originally posted on Melissa and Doug
My little one loves this toy. But she has had it less than one week before the paint has started to come away and the wood is chipped. I can't find anywhere in the toy specification what type of wood is used to make these toys or the paint that is used? These toys are great for gentle play, but did not hold up well to my little girls 'rough' handling. Which is disappointing.

We got this as a gift and my 2 year old barely starting playing with it before the wood started to break off and splinter. We immediately took away the truck and let her play with the animals only. Very disappointed in the quality of this item. I would not recommend it.

The back door is different than the one my daughter purchased much earlier, and my grandson plays with hers much more. He isn't interested in ours, because of the door.

I purchased this truck earlier in the year for my 21 month old son (he loves it!). My 2.5 year old niece came over to play one day and also loved this truck, so I ended up getting her one of her own for Christmas. They both love driving the truck around as well as fitting the animals into the truck. Keeps them busy. Good quality, has survived a few tumbles down the steps and still looks and functions like new.

One year later, still a hit

My 21 month old received this for Christmas 2013. (He is almost 3 now.) Playing with the animals helped to reinforce the learning of their names and it didn't take long for him to "get" the concept of putting each animal through it's OWN hole into the truck. He has a ball pushing the truck around the house and even filling it with other items (like Melissa and Doug wooden puzzle animals) in addition to the animals that came with the it. We rotate toys out by request and the Rescue Rangers made another appearance again recently and is still fun over a year later. I like that everything stores inside the vehicle for easy clean-up. I DO wish (like with all the wooden toys) that the paint was a little less "chippy" especially around edges and corners. Otherwise, I think we may get a few more years out of this toy, entertainment-wise. Beyond the shape and naming skills, the opportunities for imaginative play are endless.
