Holiday Gift Idea: Handy Manny 2-in-1 Transforming Tool Truck

Handy Manny 2-in-1 Transforming Tool Truck

The Handy Manny 2-in-1 Transforming Truck is a great gift that will keep your child entertained for hours. This really cute toy brings the hit TV cartoon to life for your child to “work” like Handy Manny.

With the help of 4 of the tools from the show, there are various things on Manny’s big red truck to fix. The four tools that are included are: “Rusty” the pipe wrench, “Dusty” the saw, “Felipe” the screwdriver and “Squeeze” the pliers.

The engine of the truck can break down at random, and Manny will tell your child how to fix the different parts. There are 5 engine parts under the hood and four additional items on the workbench that can be fixed. These 9 different fixing activities are a: toaster, clock, camera, fan, radiator, engine, air filter, battery, and spark plug.

While the pliers could pose a coordination problem with young ones, we found that our 3-5 year old testers had no problems fixing the different parts. We think the ideal age for this toy is 3-4 years old because it may be a bit easy for a 5+ year old child.

A great feature that makes this a 2-in-1 toy is that the truck transforms into a workbench. We love that the workbench has 2 shelves to hold all the tools when your child just wants to push the truck or when it’s time to clean up. The tool bench is even complete with a phone so that your child can receive calls just like Manny from neighbors (character’s from the show) needing repairs. Our little testers couldn’t wait for the phone to ring!

Once your child gets a phone call with an item to fix, he has to pick the correct tool for the job. If a little extra help is needed, there is a Manny button found on the truck door that offers help and encouraging phrases. After the Manny button is pressed several times, the cute “Fix It Right” song plays. Our kids started to sing along right away!

Once the part is “fixed”, Manny congratulates your child on a job well done. There are also many Spanish phrases and fun sound effects. We would love Fisher Price to add a volume control to the toy for quieter play because the toys seem very loud after a while.

With all the different parts to fix, the fun tools, the entertaining phrases and song, and the fact that it transforms from truck to workbench, the Handy Manny 2-in-1 Transforming Tool Truck kept our kids occupied and happy for hours on end. This is a fabulous and cute toy for your preschooler!
