This tough, two-piece tractor-trailer is ready to roll, and ready to build! Packed with wooden construction pieces and pre-drilled with holes for the wooden nails and bolts, the truck itself is a moving building site. Connect the painted building boards to create brightly colored structures on wheels! The 22 wooden pieces—including a hammer, screwdriver, wrench, board, nails, nuts and bolts—store away inside the trailer to keep your little builder's supplies organized for the next big job. Big Rig Building Set is great for fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and problem solving, and encourages imaginative play and manual dexterity. Dimensions: 5.25" x 21" x 3.5"
