My boys love toy cars. They will each get one and race them around the house or outside. They even get Little Miss in on the action. It’s pretty fun to watch them and listen to the sound effects and commentary. Toy Sate offers as great selection of fun toy cars, trucks, and other vehicles. We were recently sent the Road Rippers Hatchback VW.
This free-wheeling car features custom designed lights and speakers. When you pop the hatch on the back of the car, it plays 3 different songs with coordinating light displays. My 4-year-old couldn’t wait to get his hands on it. thankfully it didn’t take long thanks to the super easy packaging. I get SO frustrated with how most toys are secured into their boxes. You practically need an engineering degree to get some toys untangled from their packaging! The VW only had two plastic discs that simply needed to be rotated to release the car from the cardboard. It took about 3 seconds.
I didn’t tell my son much about the car. I wanted him to discover it’s features on his own so I just gave it to him and told him to have fun. At first he just rolled it along the floor. He loved how easily it rolled and told me it was “super fast!”. Then he lifted the hatch and discovered the neat sounds and lights.
He thought it was awesome and kept closing and lifting the hatch to hear which song would be played next. The sounds soon attracted Little Miss and they took turns pushing the car to each other. K couldn’t wait to show the car to his brothers when they got home from school.
This toy would make a great gift for any little car enthusiast! The Road Rippers VW requires 2 AA batteries (included) and can be purchased on Amazon or at WalMart, Target, Toys R Us, and Kmart.
