We have some good wood ones that aren't very expensive.
We have several of these and adore them!
Not bad for $4 each & made in the US. Oh, and you can get the whole set for $25. Great deal!
I'm not 100% sure we had started w/ matchbox/hot wheels by that age, but it was somewhere around there... I suppose they could break and have wheels etc come off, but it hasn't happend to any of ours yet (and DS plays with them HARD). If your looking for bigger trucks try Bruder - they make a line designed for 2-4 yrs (Roadmax) and the rest are rated for 3+. They're all but indestructible - DS1 got a roadmax dump truck & trailer for xmas last year and it still looks all but brand new, despite having been beat on for the past year
I think that as long as your DS isn't putting things in his mouth anymore you're probably ok. Our DS is 19 mo now and has had a few hot wheels type cars for several months, given to him by the older neighbor boy. He does great with them and loves them. That being said, I really want to start collecting the Plan City little wood cars for him. I'd rather he had just a few quality cars than an explosion of a thousand Matchbox cars, lol. I also found a great chemical free road play rug that we'll get for his birthday.
When he turned 1 we got him a couple of these cars:
They still get played with pretty frequently. I'm thinking about getting a few more colors for him.
