Trio Construction Sets Among the First Designed

7 Trio Sets Fit the Construction Category

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

By my reckoning, there are 7 Trio sets that have something to do with construction.

There is a Cargo Loader and a similar Construction Loader. You can get a Cement Mixer and a Bulldozer. The Construction Hauler is a semi truck, and the Wrecking Ball Crane will knock down anything you want it to. The Construction Crew set is a small crane and a pair of workmen.

All of these sets were first produced in 2009, the first year that Fisher Price created Trio bricks, sticks, and panels.​

The Cargo Loader set (P6834) consists of a tall tower with a crane on top and a dump truck. (Sorry, no pictures yet.)
