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

Give preschool construction lovers three ways to play with the CAT 3-in-1 Excavator Ride-On. It functions as a ride-on, and preschoolers simply use their feet to propel themselves around the construction site - or the house. 

But when they want to engage in some pretend construction play, they can open up the seat and retrieve the 10 MEGA Bloks building blocks and use them to build both on and off the ride-on. There are two spaces for stacking blocks over the front wheels and one space on the steering wheel. Kids can also use the pivoting excavator arm to scoop up all the blocks.

And to add some realism to the pretend play, just turn on the steering wheel (which has three volume settings) and press one of the three buttons for different truck sound effects.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun way to inspire some roleplay and building play for young construction fans. They can scoop, dump, and build over and over again, and then ride off on the ride-on when the job's done. The sound effects are a nice way to enhance the pretend play. And, of course, the blocks are nice and chunky to offer a safe and satisfying building experience for beginner builders.

Who It’s For

The CAT 3-in-1 Excavator Ride-On is for ages 1 to 3 with a 50-pound weight limit. It's a nice first building set for creative toddlers and preschoolers who like construction vehicles.
