Bruder Mack Granite Flatbed Truck with JCB Loader Backhoe Review
The Bruder Mack Granite Flatbed Truck with JCB Loader Backhoe is a hugely fun toy for children to play with, especially outside where they can run the vehicles over different surfaces like dirt, gravel and concrete, and load different things onto them for their pretend building site.
Bruder Toys are a German company with a reputation for high quality and attention to detail in their designs. This is not a cheap toy by any means but something so realistic adds a new dimension to kids’ imaginative play. Also, you’re getting two Bruder trucks or vehicles plus a trailer here, so it will make a very special gift for a child who likes this kind of scenario.
You can load the JCB (or other vehicles) onto the low flatbed trailer and transport it to the building site or wherever it needs to go to start work. The trailer is detachable from the truck and the side gates on the upper part of the trailer are detachable.
At the back of the trailer there’s a ramp that folds down to allow loading and unloading, or up to keep the loaded vehicle securely on the trailer. The doors on the Mack truck open and close, and the cab tilts up like a real one so you can see the engine underneath. On the JCB, the backhoe moves from side to side as well as up and down.
While the Bruder Mack truck, JCB loader and articulated trailer are well-made vehicles, they might not stand up to rough play from very young children. It may not be the best gift for under-fives, but ideal for school age children who are excited by construction vehicles but have some respect for their toys. It would also make a great collector’s item. Highly recommended for the right child.
