Chad Valley Crane Reviews4/5 Haddy 'Easy to put together. Can be stored easily, takes 5 mins to dismantle if you want to put it away. This is a large toy.'
4/5 Lucy 'My three year old son was desperate for a remote control crane and this was perfect for him. Good quality and great height. Easy to control.'
3/5 MrsE 'Looks great & my little boy loves it. But its quite flimsy. Broke it the first day. But good fun to play with. Don't put things on the hook that are heavy. Gets knocked over very easily. But ok for the price'
5/5 Sammi 'My 5 year old loves it! Great design, nice big size, easycto assemble. Sturdier than it looks & mechanism works really well. Really pleased with the quality'
5/5 Hotwheels 'Great product for the price'
4/5 Grandad 'Excellent toy for developing the imagination, but at the same time teaching operating skills. It would be better with a heavier our wider base though, to make it more stable.'
4/5 Paton123 'Great present for Xmas absolute bargain for the price most other brands are far more expensive. Could be a little more durable but for the money you can’t fault it.'

5/5 Fox17 'Does everything as described, my children used the crane to pick up everything in sight, kept them amused for hours.'
4/5 Iyadeep 'Bought as a Christmas present so can't comment on durability or kid-proof-ness. But I did open it and fitted AA batteries to make sure that it worked in advance of the big day. To a five-year-old it will appear huge as it is 3-ft tall. Hope it doesn't break or get broken lifting tons of concrete.'

5/5 Loobyloo120928 'This wasn't something I had in mind for my sons Christmas box but when I saw it I had to buy it for the price. My son has just started to notice cranes across the city and so I thought it'd be a nice edition to his collection of cars and trucks'
5/5 Hayley 'My nephew loves it he spends hours playing with it , he can pick his items up with the the crane , great quality , good price on offer at the moment'
5/5 Loob30 'Bought this for my son for Christmas, and although it hasn't been played with it looks great and sturdy'
5/5 Red 'I bought this for my Son who was turning 6, instantly everything else (that cost a fortune) was thrown to one side in favour of this crane. It's now perched on his playroom and covered in Pokémon characters. Durability is untested, but hopefully it will last, it has a habit of toppling over as the base isn't weighted and it's best stood on wooden flooring rather than carpet to make it as stable as can be'
5/5 JamieG 'This is a really good crane, price was really good, kids love it, however there were two snags, the wire isnt long enough to reach the pallet attachment when on the floor and also the crane extending plastic that holds the wire and hook was bent out of shape and still is but the kids don't care. Argos were quick in store and easy to order from as per normal'
4/5 Marcin 'The crane is age appropriate and is a lot of fun to play with.'
5/5 Gcol1204 'This toy has provided hours of playtime fun for my 5yr old grandson well recommended.'

5/5 Emma7 'Great product, easy to assemble comes with a bucket and another accessory. My son loves it. Great product'
2/5 SuperMum 'This crane toy is stronger. We bought a similar crane by JCB and it was very flimsy didn't stand up well. This crane is similar price but twice as sturdy a much more durable crane toy with stronger parts. It's l well balanced doesn't fall over easily. My son loves it... I find it less stressful as the other one kept falling over and I had to tend to it all the time this one just does what it's supposed to my son can play in peace.'

5/5 Bubbles 'My grandson loves using the remote control. Highly recommend this crane.'
5/5 N4reviewer 'This toy was easy to build with just a handful of major parts, and lots of fun. It can lift small objects with ease and both looks and sounds realistic. I have some concerns about its long term reliability since it is tall and can tumble or be pushed over by its target age group with ease. But it is certainly great value for money and educational.'

My 3yr old loves it but has to be abit careful when playing with it!! Not quite so heavy handed!!! It’s easy to control using the remote, standard up, down ,left right .Some more items with it like items to carry in the bucket would of been good. My son loved putting all the stickers on it too. Overall a great item any little boy would love it!!'

5/5 Inguliko 'I absolutely love this crane! For the price, it is a great value toy. It really is quite big. You need to assemble it yourself but it is quite easy to do (I suggest putting the stickers on before assembly). You only need 3 AA batteries for the remote which also powers the crane.
