My 21 month old received this for Christmas 2013. (He is almost 3 now.) Playing with the animals helped to reinforce the learning of their names and it didn't take long for him to "get" the concept of putting each animal through it's OWN hole into the truck. He has a ball pushing the truck around the house and even filling it with other items (like Melissa and Doug wooden puzzle animals) in addition to the animals that came with the it. We rotate toys out by request and the Rescue Rangers made another appearance again recently and is still fun over a year later. I like that everything stores inside the vehicle for easy clean-up. I DO wish (like with all the wooden toys) that the paint was a little less "chippy" especially around edges and corners. Otherwise, I think we may get a few more years out of this toy, entertainment-wise. Beyond the shape and naming skills, the opportunities for imaginative play are endless.

This is adorable while packaged but as soon as you take the plastic off the pieces on the side and back dnt stay on the truck. They keep falling off. The material is great and other than that it's visually pleasing but it's frustrating for my kid because the pieces dnt stay on so they quickly got bored and only play with the pieces seperatly.

      We bought this for our neighbors that were turning 2. They seemed to really like playing with it. The colors were nice and bright. We liked that they were made of wood rather than plastic. It gave a nice feel to the toy.

        Gave it to my grandson for Christmas. He's only 14 months old so he's not really able to match the animal pieces with the openings in the truck, but he plays with the pieces and likes the truck. It's sturdy and old-school and a toy that he will be able to play with for several years through different stages.

              I love this product. I have bought for my own two year old and as gifts for friends kids. Little two year olds have so much fun with the puzzle aspect and putting things into and taking things out of the truck.
