If your kids are hard on toys, you may be like me and REALLY tired of cheap, plastic toys that last about 30 minutes. I am also really tired of trying to determine if these same toys are covered in lead or cadmium paint. But, I was recently sent a set of toys from Heirloom Wooden Toys to review that is neither made from cheap plastic nor covered in lead or cadmium paint.

There is a little (or big) something for everyone available from them. From wooden furniture to educational toys, imaginative play items, musical instruments, games and puzzles and many more wooden toys, there is an amazing variety of high quality products available from Heirloom Wooden Toys. (Be sure to check out their Handmade section, too!)
I have always loved toys from Melissa and Doug, so when I was given the chance to review the Stacking Construction Vehicles, I was thrilled. With two boys in the house, I have come to know much about construction vehicles. Plus, my littlest (2) is at the age where he loves to do puzzles, take things apart and put them back together. (Sometimes this is a good thing, and sometimes it is very frustrating.) Anything that involves wheels and puzzles combined is sure to be a hit in our house.
The Stacking Construction Vehicles are a set of three different vehicles, a dump truck, a cement truck and a loader. Each comes apart into several large pieces leaving only the base with the wheels on it. My youngest is 2-years-old, but he had no problems disassembling the trucks. And, after several rounds of being shown how to put it back together, reassembling the trucks was no challenge for him, either. He loves to take the trucks apart and put them back together, drive them around the house and begin the process anew. Sometimes we play a game of trying to see what new, amazing and completely unique or silly vehicle we can make by assembling parts from all three different vehicles. We also use these to talk about colors, names of parts, counting, shapes, etc. These have survived the sand box, running down the back ramp, the driveway, the sidewalks, and all manner of other play the boys can put them through! What a great toy! No batteries, electronics or loud beeping sounds. Just pure learning and fun!
This set would make a great gift for birthdays, Christmas or anytime. You could even divide up the set and give one vehicle to three different kids. Purchasing these toys is a wise investment into the long term learning, play and enjoyment of young children. They might even make it a couple of generations! You can’t say that about most plastic toys!
