Hello children, Big Bear here, gather round as I tell you about the Toy Truck
Chrissy is Ben’s neighbour and friend. Every day they play together, and his favourite toy is a big dump truck. It’s big enough for him to sit inside, ride, and load all his toys in the back. He loads his toys in it and journeys off to unload them outside. His dad used some cement slabs to build him a little road around the garden, and it is so much fun! It has a circle, a stop street and a robot with colourful lights that really work!
Do you have any friends next door? What’s your favourite toy?
Ben and his friends love going over to Chrissy’s to play, and they take their toy vehicles along with them. To make the trip easier, they also load the toys they want to take onto toy wagons and trucks. Those who don’t have a wagon or truck just pull them along in a box. Sometimes their cousins come over and sit at the back of the truck and go for a ride, other times they take the puppy or other toys for a joyride. Even I go with at times, and I love it! When they feel competitive, sometimes they also have races on the track. They play other games on the track as well, but I can’t remember what they are.
Maybe you know?
When Chrissy and his friends finish playing, they load all the toys back on the toy truck, and his friends load theirs on whatever they brought with them and go pack them back in the toy box. One of his parents or older siblings then walks the other children back home.
Do you go play at a friend’s house at times?

He also helps his dad in the garden with his truck. Loading all the refuse, plants, or sand, and takes it where his dad tells him to take it. Sometimes he even helps mom in the house, especially on rainy days when he must play indoors. He loads things at the back of his truck and goes to pack them away in their place, or goes around driving, while he dusts and polishes the furniture. Other times he helps his older sister or brother by delivering things for them in his truck.
Do you help your family? How can you make it fun to help at home?
Chrissy and his friends have also started school, so they have homework to do sometimes. They usually don’t get to play until after they have done their homework.
