ELC Big City Garage
Advantages: Will last your child a long time, also has add ons.
Disadvantages: Requires a large floor/storage space. Price is a little high if not bought in an offer
I love the Big City Garage, it keeps my little boy amused for hours.
The big city garage is a three level garage with a helipad above the 3rd level. There are four buttons by the helipad that make various garage and helicopter related noises. There is a working lift that can go up and down using a chunky handle, great for little hand. The lift also makes a noise. Don't worry though, as the noises are loud enough for your child's enjoyment but not loud enough to drive the parents mad. It is a large toy so needs a large space on the floor for play and storage. It does require an adult to build up and it isn't easy to take apart and rebuild so once its up its up!
The age suggested on the garage is 3 up, however my son received this as a present for his 1st birthday and still loves it now 2 years on. The little ones will love making the cars go up and done the ramps, while toddlers and pre schoolers will enjoy imagitive play, parking the cars and using the lift. My son always has a diffrrent story to tell me when he is playing with it. Sometimes he's in the shopping centre car park and other days we are going on a helicopter trip. It is a little on the high priced side at £55, however my sons was bought with a large pack oars for free. I have seen the garage many times in the shops with offers on it, as much as half price. If you, like myself feel £55 is a little steep, it is well worth keeping an eye out for a bargin on it.
It is also made of strong plastic and will be a long lasting toy. My son is not the best for being careful and i myself have dropped it a few times and its still going strong. It has done my son a few years already and know i'll be able to put it away for any future children i may have once my son grows out of it.
There are also other big city products that can be used with the garage. I bought my son a big city add on pack which joins onto the garage making one giant big city. Does require alot of floor space. I manage to get the add on pack for half price which was only £20. There are also big city cars helicopters and more however it can be used with any other small die cars your child may have.
Overall a great toy! For little kids and big kids it will last
Summary: Great toy, fun for little boys and big boys. Will last your child a long time.
