I don’t know what it is about this time year that gets my kids acting so crazy. I think it’s the transition from being outdoors all time to spending more time indoors. A new toy or two always helps! Lucky for me that I was sent a Toystate Caterpillar Construction Job Site Machines: Excavator for review. Well, I guess for my son to review! Here is what I the mom thought. First I have to say that I love that this toy has a mute button. That’s right! I know some moms really like that button. The toy is far from annoying so I doubt that I will use it, but I like the option. It plays music, has sounds and voices talking about moving dirt and rocks. Each of these features can be activated with a push of the button. It also moves forward and backwards. Then you have a lever that powers the excavator arm up and down. I like the working lights and the fact that it’s a harder plastic than some other toys. it’s a classic CAT construction vehicle.
My son’s first reaction when saw the CAT Excavator was priceless. Oddly enough my husband works construction and we have no construction toys! He has placed his little action figures in the driver seat and has been having a blast. In his words, “This is cool mom, thanks!” I don’t think any boy would disappointed in receiveing this toy.
