What our experts think
The JCB Hydradig is perfect for any budding builder! It is a great addition to other play with vehicle toys and encourages children to play imaginatively. During play, there were lots of opportunities for storytelling and the children asked lots of questions about the vehicle and its different parts; as it resembled ‘the real thing’, the children could relate the toy to real world experiences which prompted discussion. This type of real world play provides the opportunity for children to develop vocabulary as well as their understanding of the world around them.
Our testers liked the moving parts and particularly enjoyed putting things on the floor which they could try and pick up. Some of the children tested it on different objects to see which were easiest to lift: lego, morphun, jenga, puzzle pieces and marbles. The toy is robust enough to play with outside which adds even more opportunities for play – one of our groups tried to dig a hole in the mud!
