Review:

This truck is humongous! It is really a great toy. I would have loved to have received something like this when I was a kid. It is very well constructed and there are like two little cardboard flaps you have to remove to get it it out of the box and that is it! (Unlike most toys with all the wires and tape and such) - Got it for my 4 year old for Christmas. He hasn't played with it a whole bunch because he is really into his trio blocks right now, but it is really an impressive and well built toy. Very sturdy and very much "just like the real thing." Having it makes me want to buy less stuff but of better quality, if that makes any sense. I would use an analogy like Steak is to Hamburger like Bruder is to Tonka. I will say that I got it CHEAP before Christmas. It is probably worth the list price, but just not to me, because I am CHEAP.

Review:

I purchased for a three year old - he plays with it - but it is a little big for him, right now. I think I purchased more for me - as we have the Semi with the flatbed, front end loader, dump truck, and tractor that is all Bruder. All have held up very well to the outside mulch bed, and the living room. Nice they can be washed off and not worry about rusting. If a part does need replaced Bruder sells it - like an autoparts store! I would recommend this line of toys to anyone.

Review:

My 4 year old wanted a forklift type vehicle, and I researched for a long time mostly because of reviews written by other consumers. All other truck reviews said the forks broke very easily. Well it's been 3 days of play, and he is still completely in LOVE with this vehicle. It's the 1st thing he runs to in the morning, and I have to pry his hands off of it at night. Good quality toy, and we also purchased the Bruder logistics and parts sets to have extra crates, pallets and forks on hand in case any break, but so far so good. I'm already planning additional vehicles for their Christmas gifts. His twin brother wants this same exact toy too, so I guess we're purchasing a 2nd one very soon!

Review:

We bought this for our 2yr old on his 2nd birthday. He loves Excavators, and really isn't interested in anything that isn't a realistic representation. The "cartoony" type of toy equipment just doesn't hold his interest. This one nailed it though. The tracks, the pivot points in the boom, everything. He can even put his "dude" into the drivers seat. Great toy, well worth the money.

If I had any con's, it might be that it isn't rugged. Its plastic, so its obviously easier to break than the old metal tonka trucks. However, despite saying that, I've seen him being faily rough with it, and it held up well, so maybe saying it isn't rugged isn't valid anyway.

Great toy, I highly recommend it.

Review:

I actually bought this as a "companion" for the real Jeep Wrangler we bought. It is very accurate and has many working parts -- doors open, wheels turn, etc. as other reviewers have noted. Although it is very well made and good quality, it will not stand up to heavy duty kids play as there are some fussy parts. But really cute and a good substitute for an adult who wants a Wrangler but doesn't have a "real" one yet.

Review:

The Blue Angels replicas I ordered for each of my three grandsons are sturdy, metal toy jets, exactly like the real thing! They are a great learning tool as the Blue Angels are with the Navy and that isn't something everyone knows. Many Americans associate military flight only with Air Force. A mini history lesson could be built around this gift. Seeing the Blue Angels perform is Out of This World! I was lucky enough to see them three times here in Maine. Thrilling! My two youngest grandsons went to bed with their new planes in their arms....

I bought this for my brother-in-law because he wanted the real one for Xmas but didn't get it. LOL It came in a nice box and I thought the car looked great. It's a collectors piece. He liked it even though it wasn't the real thing. Good buy.

Review:

My Ruckus arrived with a defective battery that limited its top speed and a loose set screw on the pinion gear. After I bought an extra battery from a local RC hobby shop and tightened the set screw, my Ruckus began to perform well beyond my expectations for this pricepoint.

Unfortunately it took quite a bit of effort, multiple phone calls and an e-mail (which was never answered), to get through to Horizon Hobby Product Support for a replacement battery which was very disappointing.

That said it's a great value if you can deal with the so-so build quality.
