I have finished all the Wood Magazine Contractor Toys and my grandson left Tuesday with the last 4. They had to go to work as soon as he got home.

This does prove that those toys work pretty well. He has had the front loader since last summer. They are holding up well. While there are parts of all the toys that could be improved they are well designed and hold up well to 3 year olds.

I have seen a lot of pleasurable/nice things on LJ, but this is one of the best! It reminbers me on about 20 years ago when my children where that age.
