Review: WOW Toys vehicles

WOW toys

WOW toys

We have been fans of WOW toys for a long time – I remember buying Gemma a digger from the range when she was about 2, and being really impressed then with the quality and the fact there were no batteries, irritating songs or set play formats – these toys are all about the imagination. 

Recently we were sent Stanley Street Sweeper, Flip n Tip Fred the recycling truck and Police Plane Pete for Max to take a look at.

Police Plane Pete – the plane has a motorised function that makes the propellors spin around and has a rotating tail with 3 hidden compartments for storing bits and bobs. It comes with a removable pilot and his dog too, so there is plenty to play with.

Stanley Street Sweeper – the street sweeper is a lovely little toy, perfectly sized for small hands. As you push it along the rubber sweeping brushes rotate just like a real road sweeper – perfect for imaginative play. It comes with a driver, and the roof shows the rubbish being sorted into its individual compartments so you can spin it round to sort it to where it’s meant to be. The brushes don’t work quite as well on carpet as they do on a hard floor, but it’s a fantastic fun toy.

Flip ‘n’ Tip Fred – the recycling truck – this is definitely Max’s favourite of the set, and it is played with every day, without fail. It has a friction powered motor complete with engine sounds so Max can ‘drive’ it around the house, clicking levers and doors, a sliding door on the side, removable bins and figures and a carry handle. It also has a fantastic tipper function – load the bins into the rear and pull the lever to tip the bins into the back of the recycling truck – just like the real recycling trucks Max sees every week. He loves this function, and you can hear him chatting away as he plays, telling all the figures and drivers that he is collecting the bottles and the tins.

Hardy enough to use for inside or outside play, and suitable for such a wide age range, these WOW toys stand the test of time, offer hours of imaginative play time and appeal to every child. There is such a wide range on their website, from rockets and diggers to carriages and farm sets that there is something for everyone. If you are starting to think about Christmas present ideas, I would highly recommend WOW toys.

    These look really hard wearing and perfect for toddler abuse! #TriedTested

    Toby has got the police plane and two racing cars from WOW – they really are great and get played with a lot more than some of his other toys. I’ll have to have a look at the rest of the range and see what else Toby might like.

    They look great! I love the ethos behind the toys (and their Advent calendars look fab) though have never seen any in the flesh. Good to hear they live up to expectations!

    I haven’t seen these before but Mia is obsessed with bin lorries at the moment so she would love ‘Stanley street cleaner’! These toys looks look good quality and able to withstand todder knocks and bangs! I like the bulky bright colours too as kids love things like this! πŸ™‚

    As soon as I saw the first photo I was in love with these! Good to know they are as good as they look too. Like most toddlers my daughter has an obsession with Council vehicles so would love these!

    These look good – I am in need of inspiration for my friends little boy for christmas as i have a girl and am a bit lost when it comes to boys toys! I think he would love these though! Thanks #triedandtested

    I could tell they were WOW toys straight away as they are always so sturdy looking. Both of mine love WOW toys and I remember we used to have trouble getting my daughter out of the garden centre as they had a full play table of them! WOW toys are so well built compared to other toys which have silly little bits that fall off straight away. Well worth the money.

    We haven’t really up into WOW toys although I’m not sure why as they look and sound great! Maybe one for the Christmas list. Thanks for hosting #TriedTested x
