DS has coveted a Bruder mobile crane that lives in his big sister's reception classroom for a year now so I plan to treat him to one for his birthday. The one we've seen is pretty old but pretty sturdy. I have seen one by myself in a local shop and it looked pretty flimsy which I put down to it being newer and thing always getting worse .
I have now looked online, and they seem to vary wildly in price. Is this because some are much better built than others, or is it because some are rarer and people collect them? A lot seem to be imported from Germany which makes me wonder if this is so.
