What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Looks good but like so many modern toys is cheaply made and won't last. In addition it has two fundamental flaws which in my opinion make it completely unsuitable.
1. It is unbalanced. The bucket is made of metal is is probably the heaviest part of the toy. When you lift the bucket up it tips over because the other side has no counter weight. I know this is a toy but it is meant to be a loader. Children will want to load things on it and pretend. Due to this very poor design you cannot load anything. It cannot even pick up the tv remote control without falling over and if you angle the bucket it cannot even support itself. 2. The bucket support is nowhere near strong enough. If you hold the back end of the toy (to stop it from toppling over as above) and lift the bucket with something in it, as soon as you let goi it falls back down because the piston is very weak.
As. Toy to push along it might be ok but I think any children wanting to use it as loader which is what it is after all will be sorely disappointed. I am sending ours back.
