EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Dig, Dump, and Roll with the Matchbox Sand Truck from Mattel. It's a 14-inch dump truck with a removable bucket, and shovel designed to play with in the sand. It features working wheels, and a bulldozer bumper for kids to push the truck to push sand. The bucket functions as a separate toy to play with using the shovel. There's a handle on top for easy transport.

Is It Fun?

This is a sturdy toy that seems very durable, and great for outdoor play. The bucket functions as a separate toy to play with using the shovel. It's fun, however the bucket doesn't stay in place on the truck that well if the shovel is not attached. This may be slightly frustrating to some kids who want to use it as a dump truck.

Who It’s For

Recommended for ages 3 and up, it's a good set for the beach or backyard, and would even be fun in the snow.

What To Be Aware Of

It features a bulldozer bumper though the front plow doesn't move so kids need to push the truck to push sand. The bucket functions as a separate toy to play with using the shovel. When the shovel is not attached, the bucket does not stay in place that well, which may be slightly frustrating to some kids who want to use it as a dump truck.
