My Thoughts Little boys love any kind of vehicle and for that matter, so do a lot of girls! My five year old daughter is a girly girl but she also loves to play with her brothers toys, especially when it's as cool as BOOM the Brachiosaurus Backhoe from Educational Insights! The Appearance This guy is quite impressive looking! He is larger than life and will have your child in awe! I mean a dinosaur that doubles as a backhoe; how cool is that? Durability This guy is great quality and is thick material with durable parts. You can feel the quality as you turn and maneuver him. He rolls easily so little chubby toddler hands will be able to play with him without frustration. The Mom Factor As a mom I appreciate that this toy has no batteries or electronic powered anything! That means you don't have to pay to replace batteries so your initial purchase is all it will cost you. More importantly, no annoying sounds or lights or things that will break! Most important of all; your child will have to rely on their imagination and creativity to play because it's not going to perform for them! Age Range This is rated for ages 3+; probably because of the coordination required to maneuver and push around. I don't see anything dangerous or choking hazards so a younger child could probably play; just wouldn't be able to do everything or get the same educational benefits. Meet Boom Brachiosaurus's Friends There are three other dino's in this collection so it would be fun to get them all! Versatility I like that this can be used indoors or outdoors. We do a lot of desert camping and this will be perfect to plow through the dirt! My Conclusion The Dino BOOM! Brachiosaurus Backhoe would make the perfect Christmas present for the toddler in your life! It will provide hours of entertainment and their will have to use their little imaginations to play with it!

This was one of 2 products I was sent to review, and I sure am glad. My 4 year old grandson and I had a great time. He was thrilled when he opened the gift, because he loves dinosaurs and construction vehicles. What a brilliant idea to combine the two. The living room became a prehistoric construction site and we added other trucks and dinosaurs to the scene. The Triceratops bulldozer cleared everything in its path. I know that my grandson will be playing with this sturdy, imaginative and colorful toy for a long time to come.
