Little Tikes Police Car
Advantages: Longevity of the toy. Will last from small toddlers to older children
Disadvantages: The length of time it takes to build and the complexity of building it.
We bought this for my son's 2nd birthday about 18 months ago......without doubt the most played with toy we have ever bought!
It was on offer at the time in Argos for about £35 which is about £15 less than the usual RRP. It comes in a reasonably sized box which could easily fit in the boot of the car.
The major downside with the car was the amount of time it took to build. Easily 2 hours for myself and my husband to build it. We only took it out of the box the night before his birthday thinking it would take only a few minutes to slot it all together.....2 hours later and after several arguments......it was built. The main issue was the amount of screws and bolts needed, the rubbish instructions and the inflexibility of the material which meant some of the screws were difficult to fit. After the blood, sweat and tears or building it, you then have a GIANT sheet of stickers to attach to the car! Little Tikes make you work for your son/daughter's fun!!!!
Anyway, that's basically the ONLY negative thing about the car. When my son saw it he was sooooooo made up! Put it this way, we kept it indoors for about 2 months (as his birthday is in January) and he was rarely out of it! And since it's been in the garden it is played with all the time. My daughter is almost 4 and she still plays with it, as do lots of her friends.
The little tikes car has door one one side which can also lock shut for small toddlers (so they don't fall out) and also whilst older toddlers and children can move the car along with their feet (Fred Flintstone style) their is a little platform that can be put in the car for younger children to keep their feet in so the parent can push them along.
There is also a space at the back of the car to store drinks/crayons/stones.....whatever your son/daughter can lay their hands on!!!!
In summary, a fab, fab toy that will last 3+ years!
