Magnetic Build A Truck

Mix and Match Build-A-Truck brings together the best of two worlds in terms of childrens toys – trucks and magnets. This mix-and-match set really allows for children to use their imaginations and critical thinking while having fun creating their own style of construction truck. Children will enjoy being able to mix and match the fronts and backs of the various construction trucks to create their own one-of-a-kind vehicle. This set is made from a high-quality plastic, and the frame has nice rubber wheels. Each of the individual parts have pieces that move which allow children to not just build a truck and push it around, but to move the scooper, the backhoe, etc. A feature in the building set that really impressed parents was that the magnets are hidden and the pieces all snap together effortlessly. The magnets are strong enough to hold the pieces in place while the truck is being played with, but theyre easy enough for a small child to pull apart. Magnets are fantastic for strengthening a child’s fine motor skills. This is a toy that children will play with repeatedly, and it will keep them entertained for long periods of time. As far as value goes, this is hard to beat. Parents felt that the number of pieces included in the toy makes it a bargain for the price range especially given the sturdiness of the base and pieces.

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:
