Monkey is never happier than when his working on an imaginary building site. He loves using anything and everything as rubble. Nothing is safe. We recently received the Britains JCB Midi Excavator 86C-1 from HTI and Monkey could not have been happier. It’s one vehicle he doesn’t own, and a great addition to his fleet apparently.
The Britains JCB Midi Excavator 86C-1 is a 1:32 die-cast metal model, suitable for children aged 3 years and over.
The body rotates 360° so it can handle any manoeuvre. The excavator arm raises and lowers from two parts along the arm and can swivel from side to side. With a bucket that tilts backwards and forward it can scoop and dump rubble around the building site.
Making it the perfect excavator for any smaller construction site job.
It also includes a movable front blade which my expert tells me is very handy. The caterpillar tracks also rotate, for a really authentic feel, although they don’t like our old carpet much.
As with all the vehicles we have from the Britains range, the Britains JCB Midi Excavator 86C-1 is well made and gives children a really authentic feel to their play time. Monkey just loves it.
Monkey loves all the moving parts and we’ve talked a lot about hydraulics and how the excavator arm actually moves. It’s great for him to see these machines for real as we pass building sites, and then come home and look at such good replicas close up.
My little JCB expert has also discovered that the Britains JCB Midi Excavator 86C-1 has a moveable plastic wing mirror. He loves the idea that he can adjust the mirror, I love the fact that this probably means it is less likely to break.
All in all this is a great little model and priced around £17.99, it’s another great vehicle in the range. I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below for you.
