4. Metal Dump Truck – Out of all of the trucks we own, the dump trucks get the most action. Hint: metal trucks seem to be favored among the kids. I think it’s because the noise it makes when rocks and materials are dumped in and out.

5. VTech Rhyme and Discover Book – A great car toy. Kids like all of the buttons and the loud click that happens when you turn the pages.
