What makes the Pintoy Scoop Crane so much fun?

It has real rubber tracks and many beautiful details. You can secure and operate the digging arm with a lever.

Not even plastic in the controls because the digging arm works with strings to move it up and down.

This may make it a little more difficult to control than all the other plastic toys today, but it's a really nice find and takes you back to when toys were made of wood and quality.

It is certainly a different choice than the others, and an environmentally conscious one!

The wheels roll very well, even on sand or grass, so playing outside is no problem.

Cons

Due to the completely wooden construction, it is difficult to shovel. With us it is actually only used outside. Inside we have some plastic excavators.

It is the kind of toy that you really want your child to like more, but maybe 3 years is still too young to be able to control it.

And that's a shame because that's the ideal age for this kind of digging toy.

Conclusion

A beautiful wooden excavator to see. Unfortunately a bit difficult to control, which means that other toys are more often used.
