Play-Doh Diggin’ Rigs Buster the Power Crane Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

Hasbro combines construction trucks with Play-Doh in the new Diggin' Rigs line. Using Play-Doh compound to activate lights and sounds, kids can build, bash, scoop, and smash. Buster the Power Crane is the centerpiece of the Diggin' Rigs crew and comes with 10 tools. His button-activated voice encourages interaction and play, and when kids push Play-Doh compound through the crane boom, more lights and sounds are activated. Kids can lift Buster's crane and push Buster along as well as use the Play-Doh tools to create and build with Play-Doh bricks and more. Buster comes with four three-ounce cans of Play-Doh compound in specialty colors: metal, brick, sand, and asphalt. Also included are two hand tools for rolling and cutting Play-Doh, two boom attachments, and two book molds, allowing kids to cut, stamp, and mold Play-Doh compound into other construction-themed creations.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun new way to play with Play-Doh. Construction-themed play is a classic boys' play pattern, and this playset lets kids play with a fully functioning truck as well as build a construction scene out of Play-Doh. There's a lot of potential for creative, open-ended play with Buster the Power Crane.

Who It’s For

Buster the Power Crane is for ages 3 and up.
