Realistic details include individually linked tracks for real movement and sound, an easy-to-use shovel arm with removable bucket that is operated with a handle, a cab that rotates 360 degrees and a hood that opens to reveal the ventilator grill. There are even some included rubber inserts that attach to the tracks to give them grip on slippery surfaces like tile or linoleum.
Children at play are at the heart of everything Bruder does. Playing is not an end in itself, it enables children to gain experience for their development in the adult world. Bruder products are developed as “model-like toys” to foster this premise. Model-like toys encourage role play while simulating real environments and creating an understanding of context by physically grasping the situation.
