So, how's he driving?

For Valentine's Day (or, more likely, just because), we gave Kevin a truck. Now, I'll be the first to admit that he has some kewl toys, and sitting there playing with him is just plain fun. But, I was a little disturbed with this truck.

See, you'll notice that the truck in question is a tractor-trailer rig, and it comes with a loading dock and some crates of stuff to put into the trailer. All fine and dandy, but if you look closely, you'll see that the driver has a cell phone in one hand, and a thermos in the other. Aside from the fact that six-year-olds don't need to drink coffee (regardless of any medical benefits), I still want to know how this kid is driving a semi with both hands full.

Sure, it's a toy. But parents worry about the values their kids learn when playing with toy guns. How many parents are going to look at this and worry about what it's teaching their kids about vehicular safety?
