Surprise Toy: Dirt Diggers 2-in-1 Haulers #LittleTikes

What kid doesn't love to play in the dirt? Well, mine does and he is obsessed with "construction workers" and "construction sites". Any dirt pile is a construction site according to Kiddo! That is why the Little Tikes Dirt Diggers 2-in-1 Haulers are the best gifts for little kids that love their hands dirty!

Dirt Diggers 2-in-1 Haulers is a collection of construction trucks that includes a Front Loader, and Excavator and a Dump Truck. You can get them in a bundle or separate.

We have the three of them now. Little Tikes was kind enough to provide us the two Haulers that we needed to complete the collection: the Excavator and the Front Loader. The Dump Truck is already a year old and it is indestructible, BELIEVE ME!

Now, I know you must be thinking "but why does the name says 2 in 1 Haulers?" Well, let me tell you. Each of these trucks have a feature: you can either use the truck as it is or remove their tool to use it separately. Kiddo says that they are more like a 3 in 1 because when you remove the tool they look like tractors.

For the Dump Truck, you can remove the bucket and it becomes a basket, pretty handy when you need to haul so much dirt from one pile to another. It can also be filled with sand and the shape is perfect to make sand castles! For the Front Loader and the Excavator, you can remove the arm with the buckets, and then use them as shovels like Kiddo does. To remove the tools you just pull it up and it comes off, then push it back in and that's it, it is in place again.

One of our favorite things about these is their color and the little details. We love the soft gray in combination with the "construction orange", as Kiddo named it. And inside the toy you can see the little details that I always look forward when buying toys like these.

The entire toy is plastic, except for some parts like the wheel connections and some screws in the arms that are metal. But this is a durable plastic, Little Tikes is synonym to high quality products, and we have proof with our Dump Truck (*wink*).

Kiddo has had that Dump Truck for a year, it has been in trips around California, in the back of the truck, it has gone rolling down the stairs, it has slept outside with no cover for months, exposed to rain, sun, dust, wind…. and it still works as perfect as the first day. You (and I) can expect the same quality with any other Dirt Diggers 2-in-1 Haulers, like the Excavator and Front Loader.

Toys like Little Tikes' are the toys that every kid should have and that all parents want, because when we get a toy for our kids we always want a toys that they can have fun with but that no matter what will be worth our money, and that means that it is going to be a high quality product that will last for a long time.

As you can see we have had lots of fun playing in the dirt. We are fixing our garden and Kiddo couldn't miss the opportunity of playing in the compost pretending it is a sand box. He has helped a lot with his construction equipment, if it wasnt for him we would still be dumping dirt in the beds (haha).

I know that you are thinking: "wow, these folks are crazy, I wouldn't let my kid get those brand new toys dirty like that."a but guess what? You don't have to be concerned about how dirty these get, because cleaning them is a breeze! You just hose them down and let them air dry and they will be all clean (that's my favorite part).

Needless to say, Little Tikes is a brand that we will always trust for toys which means that they are totally Kiddo Approved. We love hands on toys that are great for coordination and motor skills, these are also great for kids that looove to use their imagination while pretend playing. If you are looking for a high quality toy for any kid as a gift for the holidays, Little Tikes has the answer for you. Go to their page and check out all the amazing products they offer.

*I received the product for testing purposes in exchange of my honest review. Although the product was free opinions are 100% my own.


  1. Oh that looks like so much fun!! I have an almost 2 year old son and a 7 year old daughter who would absolutely LOVE this! How has it been holding up in terms of durability since your review? Toys always seem to break so easily these days... at least in my house..

  2. Your kiddo looks like he is having a ball with these Little Tikes! I was a bit of a tomboy when I was little and can so see myself wanting these back then. Heck I kinda want them now! OAN: Kiddo is the perfect spokes-kiddo for this. Look at him in these pics!

  3. How cute are those! My son would go crazy over them. Such a great gift idea. And your son is too cute, he always looks so happy in all of your posts.

  4. That looks so fun! Clearly he enjoys Little Tykes. I really like your pictures as it is useful to see how a child interacts with the product.

  5. These look so fun! My boys absolutely love playing in the dirt and using trucks. These have just been added to their Christmas wish list. Thanks!

  6. This looks so interesting. My kid is 3 years old and I usually don't allow her to play in mud by herself. But looks like this is a perfect fun loving toy. Thanks for sharing.
