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.)

I used to tell my son before I dropped him off at preschool: "Play hard, have fun, get dirty!" He gets a bath at bedtime, and, well, that's what washing machines are for.
