I can see my son really enjoying this toy for the outdoors. He loves Dinasours, Dump Trucks and Sand so this would be an excellent toy for outdoors and at the beach. You can put sand in it and dump the sand out just like a real dump truck. He likes that there is a moveable dinasour head and the tires leave dinasour tracks in dirt or sand.

Would have been great if this dump truck was bigger. I think my son would have been more impressed if the size was larger. However, the smaller size makes it more conducive for travel and taking outdoors. I don't think he cares for the little dinasour man that comes with it.

    Comments about Educational Insights Dino Construction Company™ Rocko the Styracousaurus Dump Truck:

    The Dino Construction Company Rocko the Styracosaurus Dump Truck gets a lot of play by my five year old son. He has some other bigger Dino Construction vehicles but tends to prefer the smaller size of this one because he can bring it along pretty much anywhere. This Dump truck came with an action figure. This figure is a great addition to add to imaginative play adventures, especially if you collect for than one of the trucks in the series and have multiple figures for play!

    The durability of the dump truck is top notch. My son plays hard and tends to put a lot of pressure when playing with his toys (if it's cheap it's going to break). The plastic isn't the strongest but the fact it's still in once piece after over a month of play wins my praises. The wheels on the bottom of the dump truck vehicle dinosaur leaves tracks when it goes across damp dirt, mud, or sand. The mouth of the dino opens and closes which is perfect for scooping sand and dirt. The back of the dump truck is perfect for holding rocks, blocks, sand, dirt, or whatever else. The mouth nor the dumping part of this toy has become un-maneuverable.

    As a parent, I appreciate it's completely kid-powered with no batteries needed. I like it's withstanding play and that it can be paired with other sets from the Dino Construction line. It's an excellent choice that promotes all sorts of wonderful things like story-telling, exploration, and developing fine and gross motor skills.

    My son has paired this set with his other Dino Construction Company™ vehicles and construction set. His imagination runs wild and his story telling skills informing we of what's going on are very precise. He's had his little dino action figure go on digs and discover the fossils inside the rocks. This set like the others in the Dino Construction line is completely battery-free and 100% kid powered. I think it's great alone but even better paired with the other sets.

      Comments about Educational Insights Dino Construction Company™ Rocko the Styracousaurus Dump Truck:

      My three year old son was immediately drawn to this truck. Although he isn't much of a dinosaur fan, his obsession with cars/trucks kept him fully engaged in this toy. He especially loved it when we took it to the park for some sand play. He had fun adding and dumping the sand. The little figurine is also an added plus!

        As an owner of the "DINO CONSTRUCTION COMPANY WRECKER THE T-REX SKID LOADER" which my daughter absolutely loves, I jumped at the opportunity to review this toy knowing that she'd love it too.

        The man who thought to combine dinosaurs and trucks, well done. The only downside to the other toy was that it was large, far too large for her to bring on vacation or most places. That's where this one comes in. It's sturdy, well built, and has enough moving parts for her to tinker with and shove her other little toys into the driver's seat (and it comes with a little dinosaur driver... I heard you like dinosaurs, so I put a dinosaur in your dinosaur), AND it's small enough for us to bring it everywhere the other one can't go!

        My 3.5yo is going through a dinosaur phase and every time we go to the sand pit, take her to daycare, or go to her friend's house, she wants to bring this one along, and that's fine by me.

          My son was sleeping when his toy arrived so I left it at the foot of his bed. When he woke up, the first thing he said was, "Wow, cool toy dad!" He immediately asked for it to be opened and once he was able to play with it, he said, "look mom, I bite" (as he open and closed the dinosaurs mouth) He got his toy on Saturday the 24th, and has taken it everywhere he goes...even the bath ☺️

          My kids, who are 3.5 and 6, love playing with construction toys, and this dump truck is very good. They use it with the cement mixer to "play construction" and they load it up with sand and water. I was worried that they would fight over the cement mixer, but they like this one just as much because it has construction action both in the front and the back. Also, this one can hold rocks in the back. We usually take it to the playground and sandbox. The only downsides are that the plastic does not feel super durable and the action figure doesn't actually do anything.

                My little man (3 year old) loves these Dino Construction series. For the Styracosaurus Dump Truck, he loves putting his hot wheels and other toys in the bed and dump them. The design is simple and fun for him. I think this is his favorite because he is able to drive around his other toys. It is also durable because they will crash into the wall and each other.

                    Comments about Educational Insights Dino Construction Company™ Rocko the Styracousaurus Dump Truck:

                    I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.

                    Both my 5 and 3 year old loved this toy. We brought it camping and it was perfect for them to run around the campsite and beach with, digging and hauling. I did find that it wasn't easy to keep items in the truck bed b/c it seems a bit shallow. But my boys never minded this. I love that it was small enough for traveling and with all it's moving parts engaging enough so my boys didn't need larger or more toys (we brought 2 others from this line and that was it for a week of camping!).

                    My one complaint is the little dino driver inside - so easy to lose. We've actually lost ALL the dino drivers of our 3 trucks by now. I'm not going to give the toy lower stars b/c it works fine without it.

                    This toy is well made and super cute for my dinosaur loving grandson! It combined his love of dinosaurs and trucks! Since this dump truck is a dinosaur, which he recognized immediately, it quickly became his favorite dump truck to play with. The toy dino man was fun to put in the drivers seat and my grandson loved to put other small toys and sand (when outside) in the storage area. I can tell that this toy is durable and will definitely stand up to three year old play!
