About the Pull Along Shape Sorting Truck
“Make way for the garden truck “driven” by monsieur Potiron the Donkey. This delightful wooden toy from French toy maker, Moulin Roty is a perfect toy for a child to move from baby toys to toddler toys. As youngsters learn to stand tall and walk they can add simple pleasures like a pull toy to help them focus on what’s ahead and what’s behind! Brightly painted and made of sturdy wood, this pull along has some sit-down activities including deciphering a square from a triangle from a star.”
Pull along and shape sorting toys are two of the most important toys that you can provide for your baby or toddler. I was very delighted to discover a high quality toy that was a combination of both these types of toys. The Moulin Roty Pull Along Sorting Garden Truck is a very well made, all wood sorting truck with a convenient pull along string attached to the back. You have heard me mention this dozens of times in my reviews, I absolutely adore wooden toys and prefer them above all else. They last significantly longer than plastic toys and are always the ones that my children seem to prefer anyways. I can honestly say that I do not recall ever picking up a wooden toy from the playroom and thinking “well this toy has seen better days” and then proceed to throw it in the trash. I can, however, think of the dozens of times I have come across plastic toys that were simply not fixable and quickly made their way to the trash. Wood toys are also easy to repair and age very well, well worth the investment, as opposed to constantly replacing plastic toys.
The beautiful, bright and vibrant colors of the garden truck is what I first noticed upon taking it out of the box. The shapes are the perfect size for your little ones hands, making it easier to push them through the appropriate slot. Each shape drops into the back of the truck and when your child has successfully sorted all the shapes, they can dump them out of the back and start again!
I just love how the colors and patterns on the shapes are the same color and patterns where they go in the truck. This also helps encourage your child to learn not just their shapes, but also their colors. This is overall a wonderful product that I highly recommend for all the parents of small children. If you are looking for a simple, fun and encouraging way for your baby or toddler to learn their shapes, this toy is the one for you. A toy without batteries that doesn’t do all the playing for your child, now that is an ideal toy in my opinion!
