Toy Garbage Trucks -- Play Trucks

Updated on September 11, 2014

Keep Them Busy Cleaning Up with Garbage Trucks

Kids love to pretend while they play. They especially like to play with toys that resemble real things they see in real life, like toy garbage trucks.

When the garbage man comes around to collect your trash, most little boys love standing by to watch the giant arms of the garbage truck grab the garbage cans or better yet, to grab a dumpster, and raise it high in the air then dump the trash in the hopper!

Toy garbage trucks have moving parts to help children visual how the real thing works. They can tidy up the house with a toy garbage truck of their own!

      Little boys are fascinated by large equipment and a garbage truck fits right into that. Great for gifts for young boys.
