Wonderworld Mini Tower Crane {Review}

Charles is into everything "boy". Cars, trains, buses, planes, boats, everything.
Living on the coast and in a fishing town means there are always cranes around somewhere. Every time we go to the supermarket, which is by the docks, we stand and watch the cranes before and after we shop. He has recently become obsessed by them, the colour, size, what they are carrying. It's very sweet.
Therefore, when DKL Toys (you can follow them on Twitter here) sent him a Wonderworld Mini Tower Crane you can imagine his reaction (in fact I wish I'd recorded it!)

Made from environmentally friendly rubberwood and finished with non-toxic water based paints, it's a refreshing change from the plastic creations which seem to be taking over our playroom at the moment.

Taking the Mini Tower Crane out of the box I was impressed at how few pieces there were to put together, although there was a couple of screws needing to go in but nothing too strenuous.
It was easy to put together and in no time our lounge had turned into the docks.
Even Harry couldn't resist having a go on the crane.

Once built it is really sturdy, which is to be expected from a wooden toy. Occassionally the top of the crane is coming apart but with a simple tap of a hammer its fixed and is perfect again.

Charles loves it so much that it's one of the toys which has to go to bed with him at night.
If we weren't sent this for review then it would have been very high on his Christmas list.
 
 

 
We were sent the Wonderworld Mini Tower Crane for the purpose of this review. All words are honest and my own.
