Picasso Tiles PTT 301 Front Loader Tractor Review


Toys / Saturday, February 3rd, 2018

After reviewing the Fire Truck Toy Car I was extremely excited that Picasso Tiles asked me to review Picasso Tiles PTT 301 Front Loader Tractor! Similar to the Fire Truck, but it is a tractor.

Just for ya’ll to know, I am not getting paid to do these reviews. I truly enjoy Picasso Tiles and the toys they put on the market. I would buy these if I wasn’t asked to review the products they choose to send. These reviews are my 100% honest opinion. In here I might link different products through my affiliate amazon link. You can read more about my disclosure policy here.

When I first opened the package I noticed the box was smaller, meaning the truck would be smaller. However, I am not one to judge a toy by its size. As with the Fire Truck, it is high quality. There are multiple parts to screw off and on which benefits fine motor and creativity skills.

The screwdriver has three different tops, a Phillips, a flat-head, and one that fits over the top (I’m not sure if it has an actual name). The children preferred the latter as it was easier to use. Added bonus of this screwdriver: It clicks when it is tight! I love that feature of this truck!

Since we live in a small, farming town I was very excited to show the kiddos the tractor. All of the kids love to play with it! Even if we aren’t taking it apart! Its multiple use is one reason I love it!

Pros of the Picasso Tiles PTT 301 Front Loader Tractor:

STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Curiosity: I love toys that promote children’s thinking and understanding.
The screwdriver clicks when it is tightened.
Fine Motor Skills: screwing on the screws takes concentration and finger muscles.
Gross Motor Skills: Some kids will crawls around while pushing it.

Cons of the Picasso Tiles PTT 301 Front Loader Tractor:

As with the Fire Truck, my only con would be the size of the screws plus the screwdriver and tools.

Since we work with some smaller friends, we have to be careful not to give them small parts as some of them are still in the oral sensory stage and put everything in their mouth. But! As long as you keep an eye to make sure things don’t go in their mouth, all is well! 🙂

I do recommend buying Picasso Tiles PTT 301 Front Loader Tractor! Or others from Picasso Tiles! They have wonderful toys that are open-ended to promote curiosity and imagination!

As always, thank you for reading!
