I remember when Mr2 was a baby and he was given his first WOW toy. To be honest I didn’t think much of it at the time as we had a playroom filled with various brands and styles of playthings – I thought it was just another one in the mix. Wrong!
Mr2 soon taught me about the fun and imagination that goes hand-in-hand with these little vehicles. Each toy comes with at least one character, and some include animals and other accessories. I especially love the baby-wearing mama – a toy after my own heart! See her in the middle below?
Another bonus is the fact that they run on friction motors – NO BATTERIES! Who else has been caught out on a birthday or Christmas with a toy that can’t be played with for lack of batteries? I know we have and WOW toys won’t give you this problem. They simply don’t need anything to make them a part of any imaginary play.
The boxes state the ages are from 1.5 – 5yo but my kids have (and continue to) play with it outside of these ages. Not to mention the fact that I love to play with them too! Check out the granny riding the sidecar below – yep, that was me! Santa often flies the rescue helicopter and the farmer gets around in the pink racing car. Hmmm, you gotta have fun too right?
Hand on heart I can say that these toys get the most play in our house (this can be evidenced by the insanely large collection we have) and that’s because they ignite your child’s imagination. They’re not intricate and fiddly which works well with chubby little fingers. You don’t have to worry about them breaking because they have a 10yr satisfaction guarantee including for breakages. Any toy that can withstand the wrath of my 2yo wins my vote.
