Bruder Mack Granite Dump Truck Review
The Bruder Mack Granite Dump Truck is a good replica and it even has the little bulldog on the front just like the real full size truck.
This realistic model has opening doors, a dump bed that lifts allowing the trap door to open and folding mirrors. You can also purchase extra equipment, one add-on kit gives the truck realistic sound effects, another add-on accessory is a snow plow for those winter trips. You can also buy other scale construction models, for example excavators, and make up your own toy construction site scene.
While this truck is in scale, it is not intended as a collector’s model, but as a toy. It is a large toy dump truck measuring approximately 21 x 7 x 9 inches. It is made from sturdy, durable plastic, which in use is fairly hard wearing. Collectors’ models are usually made from die cast metal, however this is a large truck and if it were made of metal it would be far too heavy for children to carry.
It is large so those buying it as a gift might want to consider how they are going to get it to the recipient. Putting it in a car would be great but it is rather bulky to carry too far or take on an airplane, you might want to have it delivered to the recipient.
Bruder make a variety of realistic model trucks in the same range as the Bruder Mack dump truck and some buyers will want to collect them all. They are great for the imaginative play that children love. For example, we’ve reviewed the Bruder Mack Granite Flatbed Truck with JCB Loader Backhoe and the Bruder Caterpillar Track-Type Tractor right here.
Some parents were a little disappointed that the truck was not metal but children love the Bruder Mack Granite Dump Truck. It has so many working parts that kids think it is just like the real thing. Any little truck lover would enjoy playing with this wonderful toy.
