Picture the perfect toy: If it doesn’t exist, then kids can build it straight from their imaginations.
From roller coasters, to log cabins, to trucks—the possibilities are endless when kids can start from scratch to build toys themselves. Not only do building toys keep kids occupied for hours, but they also promote basic engineering skills to add to their resumes. If you build it, they will come. So hunker down, and let’s get building!
Hand the little ones their construction hats and put ‘em to work with this Tonka Mighty Builders truck for ages 1 and up. The truck itself acts as a storage container filled with easy-to-grab oversized building blocks that can be built right on the top of the vehicle, which also doubles as a play table. There are wheels that really roll and the truck features a handle, so kids can be the boss of their new construction site and take it on the road with them! Let’s rock ‘n roll and tow ‘n go!
