Red Tip Truck for Toddlers
A perennial best seller, this rocket red tip truck is useful in moving serious loads of sand and dirt. Unlike so many other toy trucks, this one is just the right size for 1 and 2 year-olds to grasp, push, and roll. The hinged bed and tailgate hauls and dumps loads just like the real thing. Imaginative play takes center stage. Specifically designed without batteries, lights or sounds.
A clean, rounded, contemporary design with a cab shape functions as a pick-up handle. It is easily managed by the smallest of hands. In a bright, shiny rocket-red finish, the rubber wheels won't mar furniture or floor. Built with toddlers in mind, it can handle the most enthusiastic truck driver.

Young children learn best by touching and playing with toys and materials. Simply handling and manipulating this tip truck is a form of sensory play which helps develop eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills in preparation for hand and finger control needed for writing. Youngsters are still gaining control of large muscles. The better they control the truck as it moves along and tips loads, the greater their physical confidence.
With a toy like this rocket red tip truck, children can put real world knowledge of construction scenes into creative settings of imaginative play. With your help, children can make up delightful stories about building and moving dirt. Creative storytelling develops language, imagination and creative thinking skills. If children are struggling with creating stories, adults can model the skill, an excellent opportunity for relationship building and a lesson in teamwork.
Children continue to increase their vocabulary with your support. They can’t use words until they understand the meaning. It's not necessary to restrict language with young children. In fact, you can support language learning by using terms like tip truck, dump truck, dumper, construction, open-box bed, hinged bed, load, transport.
