What is it

A solid, wooden toy crane with moving parts for realistic construction site pretend play; the working crane can swivel around, spin, grab, release and move the lifted load forwards and backwards with its three steering mechanisms.  A wooden block is included so that your crane operator can lift loads.

The wooden crane toy is perfectly scaled to other Le Toy Van construction toys, cars and garages.

Dimensions : 31 x 16.5 x 37.5cms

What our experts think

The Big Crane proved extremely popular with our little testers; they didn’t want to stop playing with it!  Due to its popularity this toy was heavily tested and proved to very well made and stable. The crane was easy to manipulate and the children didn’t need any help using it; they really enjoyed using the grabbing mechanism to pick up objects.  Many of them used other toys  (such as stickle bricks) and small world characters in their play.

We really like the way in which the children played collaboratively with the toy and that it sparked their imagination.  Lots of noises could be heard while the children were playing, as they tried to recreate the sounds that the crane might make. As well as helping children understand how a machine works, the crane encourages children to think about what happens at building sites, contributing to their understanding of the world.
