Many parents are looking for toys that are not only safe for their children but also safe for the environment. The Pull Along T-Rex is a durable wooden toy that is safe for both. It is part of the EverEarth brand of toys from Maxim. The EverEarth toy line is kid-safe, eco-friendly, and manufactured with wood taken from renewable forests, as well as recycled rubber wood. The toys are painted using watercolor-based paints that contain less chemicals than traditional acrylic paints.
The Pull Along T-Rex is a wooden pull toy with arms, legs, and a tail that move as the body wiggles from side to side when pulled. It has two wheels attached to its legs and one underneath to roll on, and the pull string measures 1.5 feet.
This is a sturdy toy with a nice classic wooden look. As cute as it is though, it doesn't work as well as we'd like it to. It falls over a lot, and the wheels don't always seem to work, so you wind up just pulling the toy by its string rather than it actually rolling. We really love the thought behind this toy and the way it looks, but we wish it functioned better.
The Pull Along T-Rex is recommended for ages 18 months and up.
Maxim also produces additional animal-shaped wooden pull-along toys. Each is sold separately.
