Vtech Toot-Toot Drivers Garage
Advantages: Great fun, songs, lights
My son received this really cool VTech toot toot drivers garage for Christmas this year from his grandparents. My dad had seen it in various shops but eventually bought it in Costo for a very good price so its worth looking around.
The garage is a cool interactive toy with ramps and roads, a car wash, and works with the little Vtech toot toot cars that you can buy separately. The garage was pretty easy to assemble. The body of the garage is mainly solid and all we needed to do was attach the ramp on the left hand side and the helicopter pad. What I like about this garage is that it is bright and colourful with orange, green, red and blue parts and lots of different coloured buttons.
We already had the Vtech toot toot helicopter which works perfectly on the helicopter landing pad but the garage also came with the tow truck which is a nice addition to the set. The tow truck sings of course and here are some of the phrases it says:
I love picking up broken cars, call me I'm on the way, beep beep
Lets go and tow the broken cars
Then it makes a beep beep noise
I'm a useful truck, always ready to tow cars.
In order to make the tow truck sing you just press the face button on the front and it lights up and flashes whilst he sings. The garage is a very clever garage. It is foever singing and flashing its lights. When you first turn it on it will sing, "I'm a small garage but I can do big things, need a wash, come and visit me need some fuel, come and visit me, need a rest, don't forget me, I'm here to help you. Welcome to the Toot toot drivers garage. There is a checkpoint where the cars have to stop before they go down the ramp as there is a barrier there. If you place the tow truck on this or any other vehicle for that matter it will identify which vehicle is there and say, "Hello tow truck, where will you go.?" Then it says whee, have a good journey. I like it because it has so many different phrases and is always doing something different everytime my little boy plays with it.
There is a parking spot where you can put one of the cars and here the garage will also ask , "what is the weather like today," and you can press three different weather buttons to find out what the weather it. It will either be a windy day, a sunny day or a rainy day. If you have the function switched to the book function it will also tell you which button is red, which is yellow and which is green when you press them.
My little boy loves the ramps the best actually and even when the garage is switched off he can still play with it by making the cars go down the ramp or up in the winding ramp and on the turntable. This is a cool function where you can move the ramp up and down with a car in it and then let it go down a slope or up onto the higher part of the garage.
The cars can get washed in the car wash. You will find a button here and if you press it it will make the sound of bubbles and washing a car which is fun. There is also a petrol station which makes a filling up noise too when you press the button. The buttons are easy for little fingers to press and my son has also figured out how to turn the whole thing on and off so there is no escape from the noise for me!
This is a really fun garage that my one year old boy and actually three year old little girl love to play with and I can see it being played with for quite a few months to come yet.
