Playmobil Recycling Truck – Teach Good Habits Young
The Playmobil Recycling truck is one big boy, and it has a ton of play features as well. But one thing I really like about this set is how it teaches my son early on how important it is to recycle products as opposed to throwing them out. It’s nice to see a toy that can be a lot of fun, and be educational!
Included: Figures: 2 garbage collectors; Accessories: 1 recycling truck, 2 tetra packs, 3 bottles, 3 stacks of letters, 2 bins, 1 tube, 3 cans, 1 fire extinguisher, 2 newspapers, 2 fish bones, 2 bins
Here is a bit from Playmobil about this product,
“Help keep the city clean with the PLAYMOBIL Recycling Truck. This PLAYMOBIL City Life Recycling Truck comes with many realistic features, such as two bins and lots of garbage to collect and recycle. Help the sanitation workers to load the bins on the back of the truck and then pull the lever to lift and empty each container.
To empty the vehicle, the entire container is tilted up and the rear attachment is lifted. Easily access the driver’s cab thanks to the removable roof. Two members of the sanitation department can ride in the vehicle. Just like the real thing: The figures can stand on the left and right at the rear of the vehicle, holding on to the grab handle while driving. Includes 2 PLAYMOBIL figures. Dimensions: 10.6 x 4.7 x 6.4 in (LxWxH) Recommended for ages four to ten years.
Warning. Choking Hazard. Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.”
My favourite thing about Playmobil products is how durable the builds are. The rods holding the wheels together are pretty thick, which means they won’t bend too easily, and the tires – what i find wear down first – are a really great quality, even when my son uses the toys outside with his sandbox. This truck has a lot of great play features like bins that can be loaded and more, but I mostly enjoy that it comes with two figures.
Playmobil, more often than not, is releasing products that more than one child can enjoy. Sure, only one kid can move the truck around the room, but with two figures included, this is a great set for two kids to enjoy together. My son loves sharing his Playmobil with his friends (and we have LOTS of it), so to see them continue to release shareable sets is amazing.
If you are building a city of Playmobil in your house, don’t miss out on this great truck! It not only teaches your kids about recycling, but also lets them make their town just a bit more eco friendly!
