I'm Dirty!

Age: 4-8

“Backhoe Loader, reporting for duty!” This chirpy little fellow loves his job, and proves it by clearing a junkyard as cheerily—and vocally—as he can. Dive deep into the world of construction trucks as you learn all the technical terms associated with backhoes: “Who’s got a boom, a dipper stick, and a bucket with a row of chompers? ME! And that’s just my rear end. Up front, I’ve got steel arms, hydraulic rams, and a specialized, maximized, giant-sized loader bucket!”

Available at amazon.com, $6.99.
