Still, I'm open for suggestions!
Ha!! My ds wants the exact same one
It has been on his wishlist for about 2 years. They have it at a nearby toy store and I have never been willing to fork out for the $90 price tag. It seems like a VERY nice, quality truck though!! I was just going to suggest you watch it on Amazon because I have seen it for some fantastic sale prices there. Santa is bringing my ds his first Bruder truck this year from Amazon. I considered the cement mixer but went with this one instead:http://www.amazon.com/Actros-low-loa...5561134&sr=8-6
But even though the cement truck is huge, plastic, and all that jazz, I bet it will make for that super magical Christmas morning. Last year he was 3 and we were able to get the one toy ds wanted with all his heart from Santa. And I am so glad we pulled it off because he came down the stairs that morning convinced with every fiber that his spaceship was going to be under the tree.
The reviews on the Bruder trucks are fantastic too and big trucks are one of those toys that have a ton of staying power, if your ds is into them. We just went to a rummage sale where an 11 year old boy was selling his entire Tonka collection (very extensive) and the mom said that hands down those trucks, though pricey, were the toys that got played with extensively over a SEVEN YEAR period. From age 3 to 10. That is a great lifespan for a toy, IMO.
