Take Apart Cement Truck
This Take Apart Cement Truck Toy by Kididdo is a fantastic introduction to reverse engineering for young children.

Much like the other toys in the Take Apart series, this toy comes with a small battery-powered drill and screwdriver with different possible drill bits. Children are encouraged to use the tools to take apart and put the cement truck back together, practicing spatial reasoning and engineering thinking skills. Children can utilize the parts of this toy in different configurations and determine how different parts fit together independently. Through practicing Engineering Process of Design skills, this toy promotes curiosity and gives young children a wonderful chance to improve their fine motor abilities. - A.R. Miller, Purdue Reviewer
