There are 3 heavy-duty digging machines in the I Dig You stamp set. I think I’ve mentioned that there was a time in my life – when my son was young – that I knew the name and function of nearly any piece of equipment you might see on a construction site. My son and I checked books out from the library, watched hours and hours of video, and of course made field trips to any job site we could find in order to watch the Diggers Dig.
At one point we would walk past an especially interesting site every day (ok, I walked, he rode in the stroller). The work began with tearing down an old, small beach house, then progressed to grading and preparing the ground for construction. Once the new structure started going up there were different pieces of equipment being used, and we were such frequent observers that the construction crew would stop and chat with us. My son knew the function of every machine and it seemed he could sit for hours watching them work.
Of course, we never saw a loader operated by a giraffe:

Every stamp set needs a bit of whimsey, and small animals ready to drive big construction equipment is nothing if not whimsical.
