Like a lot of little boys and girls, my 1-year-old loves the garbage and recycling trucks. We run outside when they rumble up our street and stop to watch whenever we see them on our outings. I had a hard time finding a play truck for him that did not have a warning about choking hazards but finally when I was at Target, I found this adorable recycling truck that is also a MEGA Bloks set.
My friend Christine also sent him a board book called I am a Garbage Truck that is in the shape of a truck. It walks the reader through the garbage man's job, picking up trash and recycling.
Together they would make a great gift for the holidays.
