It's never too early to teach your child about recycling! The educational recycling truck has four parts and includes colorful flash cards with easy to grasp ideas about recycling. A teacher or parent can discuss how the truck is made while passing around parts of the truck. When the lesson is over, the students can assemble the parts into a working truck, which reinforces the positive message about recycle, re-use and renew. The colors are molded in, not painted on. Parts are interchangeable with other Luke's Toy Factory toy trucks. Made from 30% sawdust and 70% safe, certified, clean plastic. Made 100% in the USA. Waterproof and sink washable. Ages 3 & up.
