Little Tikes T-Rex Truck

If you have a dinosaur lover, the Little Tikes T-Rex Truck is definitely a must-have! It is loaded with fun times and entertainment. The cart is easy for children to manage on their own, but it is also easy for parents to push the child with the waist-height handle. The blue dinosaur handle can be held by children riding in the seat of the car, but it can also be flipped to be used to pull the cart from the front. It is a durable toy that can withstand rain, sun, and multiple crashes into various surfaces. The steering wheel turns and the doors open and close so that children can enjoy a more realistic dinosaur cart-riding experience. This toy does not collapse, so it is only recommended for families that have a significant amount of space in which to store the truck and dinosaur. A bonus for the parents is that if you are using this for a walk around the neighborhood, there’s a little storage area on the back of the truck which allows space for items such as a water bottle or keys. With all that said, there is one significant drawback here, and we heard it time and time again: this is not an easy toy to assemble. If you are looking for a quick, out-of-the-box open and play toy, look elsewhere. Our testers told us it took a very long time to assemble, requiring numerous power tools, and some of the holes in the plastic where screws should be placed needed to be made bigger. If this is not off-putting, then go for it and enjoy all the fun that follows assembly, but please know this in advance.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
