Toddler toys are sometimes the hardest to recommend. Often we put adult features or themes on kids’ toys that they don’t even relate to but entices parents to buy them. One feature that I always look for is if there are separate people, animals or animated figures for your child to talk to. Vroomin’ Vehicles has just that. Here is my review:

Since toddlers want to be in charge of their play, Vroomin’ Vehicles are just the right venue for independent, exploratory play. The rounded, chunky vehicles are easy for little hands to grip, and send on a drive across the floor, providing realistic sound effects and lights. Kids figured out fast that if they press the steering wheel, headlights flash and “beep beep” warns the police are coming. Unlike so many toddler vehicles, this police car has a removable man with plenty of detail, including a tie, belt buckle and face to converse with. The ability to remove the policeman from his car allows for more open-ended play as a child can use the man independently to work on foot or as the driver. People drive conversation so get ready for some chat when they finally park their cars.

Recommended Age: 12 months and up
