On May 29th, 2019, Funrise announced a multi-year toy licence with Caterpillar to bring a lineup of CAT Construction toys. We got a chance to check out a few of the products in the new lineup of CAT Construction toys and here is what we think of the newest products…
Little Machines 5-Pack ($5.99 SRP)
Nothing mini about these machines! This five pack comes complete with a Dump Truck, Bulldozer, Wheel loader, Backhoe and Excavator. Children’s imaginations can run wild while switching from each of the different machines. They offer 3” free-wheeling and articulating parts.
These Little Machines are perfect for small hands. They are mini versions of the big machines and each one fits in the palm of my hand on their own. They are well made and ready to get those playtime construction jobs done.
There are small parts to these Little Machines and that is why they are recommended for ages three and older.
I love that the set comes with all five Little Machines in it so that construction time can start right out of the packaging.
Construction Fleet Sand Set ($14.99 SRP)
An assortment for the kid that can’t wait until they’re old enough to step out into the workforce! CAT brings to life a construction in training set. This set comes complete with a sand shovel, rake, hard hat and a 10” free-wheeling machine vehicle. This set also offers a range in three different vehicle types.
I really like the Construction Fleet Sand Set because it is a complete playset that is ready for construction playtime in the yard or sandbox.
There are different versions of the Construction Fleet Sand Set in that there are different machines in different sets. You might get the excavator, dump truck etc. Each machine in this set comes with a hard hat, sand shovel, and a sand rake.
The machines in the Construction Fleet Sand Sets are ten-inch machines. They are well made and ready for any backyard playtime construction job.
Tough Rigs ($19.99 SRP)
When the going gets tough, the tough kids get down to business! This brand-new product release offers four different 15” free-wheeling machine vehicles. These larger-than-life vehicles are sure to please and will make for the ultimate gift. Great for solo and friend play!
The Tough Rig lineup of products are sold individually. They are the largest of the CAT Construction products that we checked out and measure in at fifteen inches.
The Tough Rig playsets are great on their own or as an addition to the Construction Fleet Sand Sets.
Out of all the CAT Construction products that we checked out, there are a number of things that we noticed and loved…
- The products are very well made.
- The products are easy to rinse and clean off.
- The products are true to life depictions.
- The products appear to be made of a durable material that will stand up to those tough backyard construction playtime jobs.
I did a search to see where you can purchase the CAT Construction products and I found them at Toys R US in Canada. I am sure that they will be hitting the shelves in all major toy retailers if they haven’t already.
