He is the perfect age for a truck like that and he will play with it for years. My son has trucks he got when he was a toddler and he still plays with them occasionally (he is 9 now.)

We have a TON of Bruder trucks and I LOVE them.
Yes, they're plastic. But they are VERY realistic. They are among the favorite toys for all the kids who come to our house. Our ds is a detail guy. Details MATTER. (Seriously, whether the garbage truck lifts the garbage on the side or the back was a HUGE deal to him!) Wood trucks just weren't realistic enough for him. The Bruder trucks are.
Other reasons I love the Bruder trucks:
1. They're made in Germany, so they're safe plastic.
2. They're durable. Really, really strong. As in my kids sat on them, used them for steps, decided to see what would happen when they were sent down the steps (and onto the slate floor), etc.
3. You can replace the parts. (Active Toys has a really nice parts department.)
I got most of our Bruder stuff on Ebay. The price was much better, and I figured I was doing my part for the environment by recycling a toy that another child was done playing with.
Look at that - a very similar garbage truck on Ebay for $25 plus shipping.

Yes! I bumped this to say that I found them at TJ Maxx for $19.99 but I think it got missed! There are some good deals on Bruder right now!
