Smartphones exert a magical attraction on children. Thanks to the RC
Smart Crane, Dickie Toys is now able to offer a newly developed toy
crane for children aged six years and over which is controlled via an app.
This allows children to become crane operators or the head of their own
construction company. Entire cities can be easily constructed using a
game app available for IOS and Android systems.
The Dickie playset of the 90 cm crane includes a play rug featuring four
loading and unloading zones. The material containers full of tools, steel
girders, bricks or wooden beams can be loaded and unloaded there.
After downloading the app, children create their own profile to obtain
the crane operator licence. In the process, they get to know about the
crane and then construct an initial building, e.g. a school or a railway
station, in a given time.
The highlight is that the app defines the loading zone and the materials
and the play rug immediately recognises whether the right materials
have been loaded in the right zone. The kids are guided through the
game by screen text, a speaker and sound effects. Once they have
practised enough, the speaker and music can be easily deactivated in
In professional mode, random tasks keep the children on their toes.
Situations such as a storm warning or a burst water pipe suddenly occur
and interrupt construction site operations. If children have obtained
their crane operator licence by playing various games, they can access
the five mini-games Memory, Slide Puzzle, Search Image, Calculation or
Pipe Break at any time.
