The cleverly named tipper truck has a bucket that holds stuff, and then you tip the bucket and the stuff spills out! If this doesn't sound like fun to you then you're not 3 years old. Our tipper truck has 4 parts that you assemble into a working truck. The colors are molded in, not painted on. So those kids who still like to put things in their mouths will not come away with paint chips. The fit of the parts is easy so there's no frustration if you're not perfect. Put stuff in, and dump it out. Sounds like the beginning of a great day! Teaches problem solving and fine motor skills.
