I recently purchased the Sassy 245 Poppin' Push Car as a gift for my son. I was searching for a small inexpensive item to buy for him as a little surprise. I bought this product from Amazon at £5.99 and it arrived within a week of purchase. This product is however now priced at £8.99.
I initially thought that this toy might be made from wood as it certainly has that look about it on the picture. When it arrived however it looked rather different than the picture indeed. It is made entirely from plastic. My impression of this toy when it arrived was that it looked rather cheap and although it was not exactly expensive at £5.99 I do not believe that the new price of £8.99 is very suitable.
The Sassy 245 Poppin' Push Car is a brightly coloured car with a clear dome at the top. Contained in the dome are coloured plastic balls. When pushed along the toy makes a loud clacking sound and the balls 'pop' and are bounced around.
The car has a smiling face and is edged by black and white stripes. Black and white images are proven to attract young babies and so this may be the reason for the choice in pattern.
It is very lightweight and fits in the palm of your hand. The exact size is 12.7cm L x 17.8cm H x 12.7cm W and the weight is 455 grams.
This toy is packaged against a cardboard sheet, held in place by wire. The paintwork appears rather sloppy and rushed and some of the plastic has overhanging edges which have not been removed when taken from the mould.
The colours do not entirely match the picture, however it is stated in the product description on Amazon that colours may vary from those shown. The manufacturer's recommended age for this product is six months plus.
My little boy adores cars like this and is fascinated by anything which he can roll along the floor. This little car certainly attracts his attention with its popping balls and clacking sounds and so far is has fared very well in terms of durability.
Overall this is a lovely little product with a great idea behind it. However I do feel that more thought could have been put into its manufacture. I also believe that the original price of £5.99 was far more suitable.
Push back on this little car and let it go to see colourful beads pop, pop, pop inside the cars clear top. The cheery little car has red wheels with yellow polka dots and purple headlights that form eyes on the cars smiling face. Black and white stripes outline the car and catch your Babys attention.
