When Woolworths was closing down I picked up the chad valley garage which I have already reviewed and I also picked this up as part of a buy 2 get 1 free deal on my sons first Christmas.
For your money you get a large transported in bright colours ours is red blue and green so very bright and holds little ones attention. It has a carry handle at the top of the transporter so little one can carry it around as as its very light it is easy to do so.It has large wheels that move meaning it can be pushed across the floor. You also get three very large cars that are good for younger children they are chunky very well made and coloured in bright colours to hold little ones interest.
It has a ramp that lowers down on to the floor so that the cars can easily be pushed on and as it comes down the lorry makes a cranking sort of noise which to me sounds more like clicking. Also it can be moved back up and clicked in to place and then it then acts as a barrier holding the cars on the hauler safely.There are two levels and each of them can hold 2 cars so my son uses one of the cars he got with his garage as they are the same and compatible to fill the lorry up.
As you begin to push the engine it makes a engine rev noise that is representing the lorry starting up and as you continue to push it you hear a horn noise blow. There are no buttons for these and it just happens randomly but I think this is good as little one has to figure out how to get these noises to work.
We have had ours around 3 years now and it is still in 1 piece no scratches and is still one of my sons favourite toys. My youngest boy now 12 months old loves it too and it is still very well loved.I would definitely recommend it and they are no available at argos.
It is suitable from 18 months plus although my son was only 6 months old when he got his and as there are no small parts we did not see any problem with him having it he loved pushing the cars on and off. It requires 2 AA which are not included for the horn engine and other noises.
Chad Valley Car Transporter.....
You can pick this toy up now from Woolworth's if you are lucky to get there before it closes, for next to nothing. A whole ago they were selling for around £11 but recently I saw them in Woolworth's for less than half that price.
I would say it is well worth the money both before and after the price cut. What you are getting when you buy the transporter is a large lorry that has on its load three chunky cars. The back of the lorry is able to drop out into a ramp allowing cars to be pushed on or off easily and there is a back section that cmes up and locks into place allowing the cars to be held in position.
The car transporter has movable wheels itself, alongside the three cars that it carries and these allow the lorry to be pushed from place to place carrying its load. There is also a carry handle making it even easier to get this lorry from room to room.
There is a large button to one side of the transporter which when pressed plays a selection of three different noises. One noise is of the lorry revving its engine , the other of a lot of beeping and traffic noise and the third one is a little bit of a song which I guess it meant to be the radio from inside the lorry.
The lorry is a lovely chunky toy suitable for any child from the age of 12 months and over. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this toy for any child as it is great fun at a great price. The fact you are getting four vehicles in one is a bonus and Jack has loved t play with this toy since getting it.
All in all I would say a FIVE star product with a HIGH RECOMMENDATION!
