LeapBuilders Store & Go Dump Truck
Interactive toys are LeapFrog’s bread and butter and have been for many years. They have pretty much perfected the cause and effect play pattern that is so valuable for toddlers. The LeapBuilders Store & Go Dump Truck joins the list of great toys that engage, entertain, and educate little ones. As with all LeapFrog toys, it comes with batteries installed already so that your child can start using it immediately. The color palette is gender-neutral, something our testers are always happy to discover. The recorded voice is easy to listen to, friendly and upbeat without being over the top. Each action triggers a reaction that delights children, whether it is a sound or an encouraging word or a teaching moment. Parents appreciated that the dump truck includes a self clean-up mode, and all the pieces fit neatly in the back of the truck to prevent less mess and fewer lost pieces. The toy is small enough to travel to the backyard, the beach, playgrounds, really just about anywhere. As for the blocks themselves, they don’t attract dirt, plus they are easy to clean since they are mainly free of crevasses where foreign objects like food and whatever can lodge. At under $20, this is an excellent price for the hours of fun it will provide your toddler.
