There are certain things you don't truly appreciate until after you become a parent: Sleep. Enjoying a quiet meal. Stain removers. Durable construction.

The last is why parents loved Green Toys Flatbed Truck and Race Car. To children these are just two really cool cars to push around. The blue truck hauls a sleek red "hot rod" on its back, and has a flatbed that tilts up to allow the car to roll off. But to parents, these are prime examples of the rugged indestructibleness that all toddler toys should have.

So far, testers have proven that the flatbed and the racecar are just as good outdoors in the dirt and sand - as well as plummeting from the tops of sliding boards - as they are indoors. Because of the way they're made, it's a cinch to rinse them off in the sink and then let them air dry. In fact, at least one parent tester will be taking these toys to the beach this summer.
