This is a large plastic car with a string for pulling it along. It has shapes which can be inserted through the appropriate holes to activate sounds / music / shape names. It also has an opening boot for putting the shapes in and out of the car. Sounds, music and lights can also be activated by using the large piano keys or by moving the dog at the front. My children (boys and a girl) all enjoyed this car from around 8 months. The combination of lights and sounds kept them entertained and the flap up and down boot was a favourite feature. As they got older, they liked to pull this along by the string. However, the shape sorting never really caught their interest, in part because it is quite tricky to line up the shapes correctly to slot them in. I think this was too frustrating for them, especially when they could just be inserted through the boot. This is a fairly robust toy (even the string is still attached after lots of play) except for the boot which broke off after too much opening and closing. All in all, a fun toy but not a great shape sorter. My only other criticism is that the music can get quite irritating after some time.
Sort the shapes or press the piano keys to hear fun phrases, shape names, get creative with popular melodies and count along through 2 modes of play. Open the boot to release the shapes and start again, or pack the whole thing away neatly with the shapes stored safely inside.Headlights flash with responses and the puppy rock from side to side when pulled along. Pull-along cord stores safely in the battery compartment for early play. Manufacturer's recommended age 12-36 months
