You've never seen a toy cement mixer like this! It actually mixes sand or mud and water; kids can crank the wheel or turn the handle to spin the drum. Holds up to 10 lbs. of mixture, and it's on wheels, so kids can push it to their "building site" or sandbox. For ages 3 and up.

Too flimsy for the buck
from Baton Rouge La
About Me Education Oriented, Grandparent
Comments about One Step Ahead Toy Cement Mixer:
Our 3 yr old grandson spotted this in your magazine and was so excited. All he talked about was getting your cement mixer from Santa! On Christmas morning when he saw it he just starred at it. Asked "What is that!" All I can say is thank goodness Santa had the foresight to bring other toys he had requested. Parts were missing & my husband had to go out & buy a couple of pieces to complete the assembly. Even after he made it as stable as possible, the mixer is still very flimsy and "shaky". Our grandson hasn't even played with it or mentioned it since seeing it. It's a shame bc it is pricey for what you get. I'm not sure I would recommend.

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
We got this cement mixer 3 month ago. I waited for toy to be used so I can realistically write a review. I do not like when customers write reviews before they actually use the toy. Could this toy be made sturdier YES. Would this make any difference while being used NO. Not at all.This is the largest toy cement mixer I have ever seen.Toy is well made and well though through. It is easy to clean, easy to use, can be used by more children at once and while totally messy totally fun.Would I recommend YES.Did I recommend YES.Mark.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Stay At Home Parent
My son loves playing with this mixer, but gets very frustrated when trying to dump, or change the position of it because the blue knob you pull to dump it, comes off every time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very cute toy & tons of fun !!!!
from Chicago, IL
About Me Education Oriented, First Time Parent, Working Parent
This cement mixer is great fun ! My 3 year old son loves it (we knew he would, he loves real cement mixers on the road!).The assembly was a little difficult, specifically putting the compression nuts on the wheel axel. Also, if your not precisely following the instructions and you forget to put the handle on before you snap the base on, your're stuck leaving it off. It is virtually impossible to unassemble the base once it is all snapped together. This is a design flaw in my opinion.We looked at the reviews before purchasing this, and several folks commented on the poor/flimsy construction.It is a flimsy toy....But it is also [$], not $200 or $300 or more, which it would need to cost to be better built.If [$] is a lot of money for a toy (everybody's circumstances are different), then this is not a good choice. Although the mixer survied a day in the snow yesterday with our son, I can see this toy breaking easily. Don't expect a well made die cast industrial toy from this, it is not!
Just like the real thing!

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children
The design is cute and very original. The first time it shipped there were broken parts and they had to reship, but did so quickly. Wish it was a little better quality, but will still get the job done.
Broken upon receipt
About Me Grandparent, Heartbroke grandchild
As a grandparent, I was heart broken when my 3 year old grandson opened the box and the parts were broken in the box!! I believe it may have been a return that was broken and it wasn't checked before sending it out to a customer. I do accept responsibility for not checking it out myself. Now we have the hassle of returning and trying to replace.
Merchant response: We apologize for the inconvenience and your grandson's disappointment with the cement mixer. Please let us know if we can assist you further. Thank you for your feedback.

Wader Cement Mixer
By Tom Sands
from Nevada, USA
I purchased this toy for my 2 boys. It is simply best toy ever. The amount of time that is used is insane. My and other children spend numerous hours making mess with the water, sand and having TONS of fun.In my opinion. A MUST HAVE TOY. It is pricy but it also does not hurt our jobs. It is respectfully made in Germany.Tom

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent
I love the idea of a cement mixer for the sandbox, but the construction is just too flimsy. My 3 year old gets real aggravated because it comes apart on him when he is trying to mix it. Wish it was more sturdy for him.
