The digger has been a huge hit with our kids! It arrived quickly, before we finished building the sandbox, but the kids used it inside at first to scoop Duplos and then took it outside to scoop mulch and dirt. It will be great for snow too. Our small-for-their-age four year old twins can maneuver the digger quite well and our six year old does great. The 8 and 11 year old neighbor boys were really interested in the digger too - it really is a great toy for a wide range of ages. We ordered the “with a blemish” digger and were one of the lucky ones! The divot in the paint was minor and doesn’t bother me a bit given the discount and that it’s an outside toy. I really appreciate the company’s integrity, that they ship only perfect products at full price. When I think about the condition my orders have arrived in from other online sellers that I shall not name, this company really excels in customer care.
I was debating between this digger and another for quite a while, but the video on the Children’s Needs site highlighting the differences between their diggers and another popular brand helped me make up my mind. They also include a link to an assembly video in the instructions, in case it’s needed.
I’m sure it won’t be long before we order a second digger to avoid fights! Overall we had an exceptional experience with this small business, both with the product itself and the customer care. Thanks Children’s Needs!
