My daughter received this garage for Christmas when she was 1. Along with it Santa brought a pack of Toot Toot emergency vehicles which included this an ambulance and a fire engine for £15. You can also buy the vehicles separate in most toy shops.
The car is suitable for children aged 12 months and over. It requires 1 x AAA battery which is included.
The car is made from plastic and is a decent weight. It is chunky and perfet for little hands. These toys can be used with the garage or on their own. If they are used with the Toot Toot garage they interact and the garage recognises the vehicle. The car has a button which is where the windscreen would be this is an amber reflector which can be pressed for sound effects and it also flashes. The car is white with a 'Police' logo and has a police strip around the side.
On the bottom of the vehicle is an on/off switch this is useful as the car does from time to time just randomly go off and in the middle of the night it has scared me!
The car is fairly loud it plays a jingly tune and sings about the police car being on it's way to 'catch the burglar to stop the crime' on Christmas day it gave us all a laugh as it is very cheesy. The car also makes a siren noise and it tells you that it has to be quick to catch the burglar.
This car despite the noise is cute. When my daughter initially receieved this she used to switch all the cars on together along with the garage and we all had headaches. As she has gotten older she now plays with the cars individually as they also sing when being pushed.
This toy is still going strong after 2 years on the same battery. It is still regularly played with by my daughter and my almost 4 year old nephew. The upper age limit on the garage is 5 but I can see no reason why I older child couldn't play with it too.
This is a great little car on it's own merit but it is better with the garage as they interact with each other.
