It's no secret that we LOVE wooden toy vehicles of any kind so it's not surprising that we jumped at the opportunity to add more to our collection!
This beautifully crafted wooden toy backhoe from Polish brand Bartu is an exciting addition to our range of ethically and sustainably handmade toys.
Children love playing with excavators and construction toys and we know they'll have hours of creative play with our Theo.
All of his wheels are fully functional, while his front loader and backhoe both move up and down. The backhoe piece is also removable.
Measurements: L: 25 W: 7cm H:11cm
Material: Ash & Beech
Age Guide & Safety:
Recommended for 3 years+. Our toys are safety tested and certified, however we always advise that toys be checked prior to play and recommend adult supervision during playtime. Not suitable for children 3 year and over who still have a tendency to put things in their mouth.
[All of toys in the Bartu range are made of solid wood. Unlike plastic, wood is a non-uniform natural material that frequently has growth rings, knots, grain patterns, coloured spots and rough areas. They are not defects - they are distinctive signs that guarantee the natural origin and give uniqueness to each toy, telling the story of the material from which it was made.]

My 18 month old grandson is obsessed with Diggers so yes he loved it. He has a new sandpit so I can see him playing with his digger in that.
The moving parts are great, the colour of the wood is perfect and matches the other vehicles I have purchased from here!
Some of the glue is visible on this one compared to some of the others but to be expected with this level of detail.
