Fisher Price Little People Racin' Ramps Garage
Advantages: hard wearing, value for money, easy to clean
My son is now 5 years old, and he got given this garage when he was only 2 years old, and to this day he plays with it, its his favourite toy. His grandparents decided on getting Ethan this as he loves playing with cars, always has done, this was a great surprise to him when he opened it up and found out what it was. Even though he as had this garage now for 3years it is still in the same condition as when he got it for his birthday. He can be very heavy handed when it comes to playing with his toys sometimes, and especially when he is throwing a paddy, his toys easily break, but not this one.
ABOUT THE GARAGE
The garage is made from very strong and hard plastic, making it very tough and very hard wearing. This garage as been through a lot, like being sat on, stood on, thrown down the stairs, you name it, and still it didn't break. The garage you will see has a parking lot (well that is what we are calling it) to the right of it you have a lift with a bell on it, cars can go up and down on the lift, although the lift does tend to stick at times, but with a gentle push it does then work. You will also notice a bridge over the parking lot, this is handy for carry it around, or leaving cars on there like Ethan does and waiting for rescue to come and get them.
The ramps leading down from the parking lot to the floor is great, they simply latched together although can be quite touch to do it with it being hard plastic it's not very flexible. Because of the cars you get with it and with them being quite bulky it fits on the ramps great, and gives you an insight of the size of cars you can expect to fit on the garage. Ethan does have a lot of cars, some big, some small, and some that don't fit on the garage like lorries, but then instead of the big cars going down the ramps with the wheels covering the ramp fully, you can place 2 small cars on there side by side, as there looks like 2 lanes, Ethan loves this and races with his cars.
The bottom of the garage has little refill pumps, and a hose, although these don't do anything as they are there for show, so Ethan just tends to pretend when going by these with his cars. I have to say this little garage keeps occupied for hours with his cars, speeding down the ramps. The garage can be played by boys or girls, as I do know a few girls that like playing with cars, and Ethan cousins tend to play with this when they come around, and they are all girls.
WHAT IS IN THE BOX?
You will find in the box, the garage, stickers to jazz up the garage, 2 cars, one being a pick up truck and that actually make sounds, 2 people, the ramps to be attached, and the bridge to also be attached. Although they are quite easy to set up, but with it being hard plastic the ramps can be quite tricky as they are not flexible.
When Ethan plays with the garage outside sometimes especially in summer with his friends it does tend to get a little mucky, even through playing with his cars on it can get quite dirty and because he as had for sometime now, I decided to give it a wipe down, and looks like new again. I did use baby wipes to clean and worked a treat, although because you can dismantle the ramp and bridge, they can easily be washed in soapy water and put back on again, depending on how dirty it is.
AVAILABILITY AND PRICE
As I have mention in the review Ethan's grandparents bought this, so I am unsure where they bought it and how much they paid for it. You can buy it from such places as:-
Argos - £36.97
Toys R us - £36.97
Amazon - £28.65
Ethan loves this garage and plays with daily with his cars, he as such good imagination, and I have noticed the last few times he as played with this he brings down his road map, and places it underneath the garage so it looks like the garage is on the road. He can sit and play with this for hours, well when he playing out, and with it being hard plastic I know it is going to last years, and won't break. Like I have mention this is good for boys and girls, and the colours are not one sex colours, they comprise of red, white, yellow and green so all neutral colours. Also when thinking about buying this don't think they would easily grow out of it, as that is what I thought the other week but he still plays with it and still enjoys it to this day. Well worth the money.
