This Husqvarna toy chainsaw is the type of gift that kids seem to fall in love with immediately. Modeled after the real 440 model, this will enthrall your child and keep him or her entertained for days, who knows, maybe even weeks. It makes realistic sounds, which might drive you nuts but adds to the overall fun of the joy. Hey, remember when you were a kid—let them make noise.

Prettier in Pink : Toy Chainsaw
And, it also comes in pink if your child likes to roam the earth in style, strutting around with confidence. I think it looks “pretty in pink,” to reference a classic film, but it’s true. NOTE: This version is only available when Husqvarna raises awareness for Breast Cancer. This is a rare model, but it’s very cool if you can get your hands on one, and it’s for a good cause.
The first thing that attracted me to this toy is the cute rounded design which I find quite appealing, as a designer first and as an adult second. To be honest, I didn’t realize they made toys out of real tools until a few years ago and for some reason, they captivated me. I’ll include a few products from other brands within the article so you can get an idea of other toy designs based on tool. This particular toy chainsaw from Husqvarna actually looks like the real thing, with the “440” moniker on it, based on the styling of the real-life 440 Husqvarna gas chainsaw. Your child can pretend to be just like mom or dad, if you own a chainsaw.
Features / Husqvarna Realistic Chainsaw
There are many unique features on this toy that immerse children into the experience of using a chainsaw. First, the chain rotates when you turn it on which is very cool, and as we know, kids love things that move — I know I did when I was a kid. Also, this toy chainsaw makes realistic sounds, including idle sounds when your child takes their finger off the trigger. To adults, these “features” seem simplistic, but to a child, they make the toy feel alive, sparking their imagination.
Some parents think the sound is too loud but it really depends on how sensitive you are. Some people get annoyed when people whisper so it’s hard to judge who will find the sound overwhelming. Either way, hopefully you’ll encourage your child to spend time outside with it — especially when it’s sunny outside.
This toy is safe for kids and meets all required toy standards for the United States. Designed for kids three years old and up. It’s obviously very lightweight, weighing 1.4 lbs. It’s on the small side so you might want to measure it out just so you’re not surprised when it arrives. The dimensions are: 13.8″ x 4.7″ x 5.9-inches.
As with any electronic toy, batteries are required. Husqvarna DOES NOT include the 3x AAA batteries required for this toy. It’s unfortunate but it might have something to do with shipping because you can’t ship products with batteries by air. They have to be shipped by ground-only, making the delivery speed much slower. Batteries can be found anywhere so it’s not really a big deal. Just make sure you have some on hand when your child opens their gift. Kids are not so reasonable when they don’t get what they want.
My only criticisms of this Husqvarna toy chainsaw is that the pull start isn’t actually interactive, meaning it’s just for decoration. It’s a small thing that your child probably won’t care about but you should know before making your buying decision.

This is a simple toy with some nice touches that encourage your child to go outside and play, as well as stimulate his or her creativity and imagination. Contrary to what some people may think, Girls and boys will enjoy this toy equally.
This Husqvarna toy chainsaw is a unique gift. It’s well-made, although don’t expect it to survive constant abuse — it’s made of plastic after all. Hopefully your child knows how to care for her toys.
Overall this is a nice inexpensive gift that will make your child’s friends envious, and if you have your own Husqvarna gas chainsaw you child can pretend to cut trees beside you as you’re outside working for real, feeling resentful that they’re not really helping 😏
For a child, this will be entertainment for days
STIHL Makes A Cool Looking Toy Chainsaw
It should be no surprise that STIHL has their own toy chainsaw modeled after their own chainsaws. This one is in the likeness of the MS 250. If you’re a fan of STIHL then you’ll love this for your kids. I personally prefer the style of this toy over Husqvarna but I’m neutral in terms of which brand I prefer. Either options are good options. I think the adjustable volume is important if you’re a parent. You might go a little crazy listening to these toy chainsaws on full blast all day long.
We also have a guide on toy chainsaws which give you a few more choices to consider, but the Husqvarna and the STIHL are the best quality of all of them. Also, other brands are cheaper and might be easier to find as Christmas gets closer.
- Realistic Replica Toy Chainsaw Modeled after the Stihl MS 250
