Excavation play is already a childhood favorite, but with this digging machine it becomes a real earth-moving experience! The sturdy steel digger features a tip-resistant base, comfortable seat and dual-control handles that help kids develop hand-eye coordination while they scoop and dump mounds of sand. Adult assembly required.
For ages 3 and up, up to 70 lbs. or 42" tall. Sorry, gift wrap not available.
Comments about Product: We bought this for our 5 year old son and he is already enjoying it in the sandbox. It seems to be quite sturdy and hoping that it will hold up. The directions are a little confusing (pictures are tiny) and one of the bolts was way smaller than the other one. We did make it work though.
Comments about Product: this is a very durable product and not flimsey at all. I was impressed with the size and the function of the handles that guide the digging. the no tip base was small enough not to take up to much room but allow a safe seat.
Comments about Product: I got this for my nephew for his 4th birthday and they set it up in the basement without any sand or anything and he and his 2 year old sister spent hours playing with it "pretend." They are having so much fun with it pretending, that it still has not made its way outside to the sandbox! We bought another one to have at our house for when the kids visit.
Comments about Product: I usually equate low cost with 'cheap', but that would be untrue in this case. These are inexpensive, but they're made well and have stood up to a lot of use. After looking at similar diggers for around $100, we were surprised at both the price and quality of these. They do the job, do it well, and are a great price!
Comments about Product: I bought one for my son and he had so much fun with it I told friends of mine when their kid has his birthday I would pick him up one, [...] Great toy though, my son has fun and so does his friend, wish I knew a store that just sold them. [...]
Comments about Product: It was a little tricky to put together, not bad though. And it really gets used in the new sandbox. I almost think I should have gotten two so that they didn't fight over it. Haha.
Comments about Product: We ordered for Christmas, but it was a lousy winter. Decided to wait for his birthday in May. I was unsure, but it was a definite hit. His 7 year old sister also wanted to use it. He is 5. It helped that Dad has a backhoe. He managed to get through the sand into the dirt below. Learned really fast how to fill in the hole.
Comments about Product: This is a great product if you have a younger child, say ages 2-5. I purchased this for my 3 year old. Its not very sturdy or strong and I fear it will break if I let my 6 & 7 year old play with it. Its priced right for what you get and so far, ours has not broken after 3 months.
