I absolutely love the Science Utility Vehicle from EI. It offers so many opportunities for my kids to learn through play. They were immediately interested in the toy as it was a truck that they could roll all over the house and the yard. Then they started discovering little things in nature which helped them learn about science. This toy sparked their curiosity and made them interested in learning about the world around them. I love how durable this toy is which allows for hours of play. My kids are ages 4 and 6, and they both loved playing with the Utility Vehicle. I am so excited to watch them continue to learn about nature and science as they investigate and examine little things they find. In full disclosure, I received this toy from EI, but all opinions expressed are completely my own.

Too advanced

My son is not yet old enough to get the science aspect of this toy. He does love the truck, though!

    4 year old granddaughter asked for a dump truck for Christmas. I have purchased other Safari products(she loves the kidnoculars) so I went with this truck. She liked the magnifying glass bottom .

        This is such a fun toy. My son loves trucks and exploring and this allows him to take a moment and see what's on the ground. He's only allowed to take one toy when we go out and this one is his #1 choice right now. It's even better when he says he wants us to explore with him. It reminds me that the smallest of things is mesmerizing to him. A great toy! Disclaimer: I was provided a sample for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

          This is a great toy! Not only my son loves cars and trucks - this is also an educational toy and which parent wouldn't love that. My son is 18months now and it might be little advanced for him to fully understand the magnifying glass for now but I look forward to have him play with this many years more! I would love to recommend this truck to friends and plan to buy more for gifts.

            My son (now 4) has loved cars since he was a baby. This car is a really neat way to add science to the equation. I just wish the magnification was a bit stronger.

                This is a really cute toy for little ones. Durable and simple to use. Definitely geared for younger kids. Opening the door release is easy for small hands by just pressing downwards, but makes it slightly more cumbersome to "drive" around while having to depress the handles if you want to keep the doors open. I like the lighting options to help see what is under the glass. I wish the magnification was a little more. Other than that, I think it's a good toy.

                  My 2.5 year old girl is into all things cars and trucks and she has many many of them at home. This was a nice multifunctional option, which I'm all about. She's still developing her fine motor skills and was wowed by opening/closing the "trap door". She spent a solid 30 mins sticking various items inside and squealing as they illuminated when the light appeared. I'm hoping this will spark an interest in science when she gets older. After playing with the microscope/trap door part of the toy, she simply started using it as a toy truck. She pops her little peppa pig figurines on top of the drivers seat and has them cruise around our family room floor:) That's what I like most about this truck. I'm pretty sure I more than doubled the play time with it. Plus I'm pretty sure this is the only truck/microscope on the market. I would recommend this as a gift for 2+.

                      My 3 year old son just loves this truck. His favorite thing is to explore outside and everything was easy for him to use and the truck itself was very sturdy and strong.
