Constructed using chunky pieces of wood very securely glued together. The natural wood seems to be just that. The Blue, Red and White paint work hasn't chipped or cracked after 2 years of light play. Front headlights and radiator grill are printed White and Blue. Side windows are printed White with the word 'POLICE' underneath.
The Sturdy wooden wheels are attached with substantial metal pins countersunk a good 1cm. However the inner wheels in this picture look different to the vehicle we had sent. The off road, chunky black rubber tyres have not left any marks on the laminate floor; even at full speed chasing a stolen vehicle!
Base one block of wood, sides and top thick pieces of wood, side windows cut out holes and windscreen completely open. This allows little fingers to easily grasp hold, allowing rapid response and relocation to anywhere. The chunky design and descent size make it easy to maintain hot pursuit over any terrain. Due to open rear access, little treasures, detainees or Police Dogs can be transported easily.
The wooden driver is firmly glued in place with a Light Blue and White finish. His thick plastic Blue hat is the same Blue as the Van and securely glued on.

Ours has survived sand play, being submerged in water, dropped on concrete and used to create paint tyre tracks for art and craft. My little one has enjoyed playing with this Police Van, though not as often as I thought. Obviously play value is unique to each individual little person. Virtually indestructible, this will be clocking the miles long after plastic versions have graced landfill... many patrols for the money!
