I remember being a kid and being fascinated with toys that you could use to perform a task. Starting with the little fake vacuum you’d push around the house, graduating to a small fake lawn mower, gradually moving up to the awesome back hoe tractor at the park that would move small scoops of sand around in a circle. That was pretty much the pinnacle of toy creation before the age of electronics came about and everything completely changed. The manually interactive toys seemed to move to the back burner and in came the age of electronics. Even with all of these incredible electronic toys out there like drones and iPads, kids still have a huge desire to play with power tools and industrial equipment. Well leave it to a forklift company to create one of the coolest toys I’ve seen in years. I wish this was around when I was a kid.
It is a fully functional replica of one of their new forklifts designed for kids ages 3 and up. It is available on Amazon.
It is designed for kids ages 3 and up because it takes quite a little skill and coordination to operate but the seat actually grows with your child making this toy one they can utilize for years to come.
It is chain driven and uses operation levers to tilt the forks as well as lift and lower up to the recommended 7 lbs.
It comes with a pallet so you can load up whatever you want to move around.
The best part is that you don’t need to be forklift certified to use it. You just need to be shorter than 50″ tall.
This forklift is a very high quality toy built to last. Guaranteed to be a hit for years.
I can’t tell you how much I would have loved a toy like this growing up.
Safety first! But where are his safety glasses and steel toe boots? I’d probably have to have an entire uniform while driving my bright red forklift.
Those who have already purchased the Linde Forklift seem to love it as much as I would. Here are a couple reviews.
Great for building coordination skills while having fun!

More toys like this would be a warm welcome and I think kids would really benefit with more hands on experiences. This forklift company knocked it out of the park with this awesome functional forklift toy.
