TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
The Big Action Construction Site is a 360-degree playset with lots to engage kids from every angle. It features a preschooler-ready R/C truck that's easy for even a 3-year-old to use because it has four simple buttons and color-coded steering. It's easy for kids to drive the truck freestyle on the floor, but then kids can drive it onto one of the ramps to activate play. The ramps are designed to guide the truck into the right position. There is also an automatic elevator. Just drive the truck on, and it raises the truck to the second level or lowers it back down. There is also an automatic dump-and-load feature and a boulder lifter. Everything packs away in the sturdy set that has a carry handle.
Why It’s Fun
The Big Action Construction Site combines a variety of play activities and play styles under one classic construction theme. Using manipulative play, R/C play, and, of course, imaginative, open-ended play, the Big Action Construction Site is a toy kids will return to again and again.
