ELC Mighty Digger
Advantages: Quality toy
Disadvantages: A bit pricey, no on/off switch
The Early Learning Centre has long been a brilliant source of quality and constructive toys and games for children, and this digger is no exception. Aimed at 1-3 year olds, it is quite versatile, incredibly durable, and interactive. However, it also grates my ears when overused!
The digger is orange and yellow in colour, with rotating wheels, and moving scoop and digger, one in front and one on the back. It comes with construction workers which can fit into the cab section of the digger. If you push down on the figure when it's in the cab or push down on the chimney funnel of the digger, one of a couple of sentences come out from the speaker underneath the digger. As a requirement of this, it needs batteries, so beware of this costing factor when you buy it.
It's a durable and entertaining toy that I highly recommend. However, it is rather pricy, coming it at near enough £15. You know you're getting a quality product, but it's not particularly big, as you can see form the product picture, and it needs batteries as well.
Strangely enough, it has been in our front room for a while and every now and then emanates one of the sentences. I have had a few late evenings sitting in our front room on my own when all of a sudden I've jumped out of my skin by a loud workman voice saying, 'Right! Let's get to work!' or 'Let's get digging!' This is more a comedy than a criticism, but on the other hand, there is no on/off button, so short of taking the batteries out there is no way of stopping this.
I recommend this toy. It will make a lovely gift for a child of 1-3 years old. Any older, and they'll get bored before long. My 4 year old doesn't play with it any more. It is pricey and there's no on/off button to save your sanity, but it's a quality toy.
Summary: Good ELC toy
