Absolutely loved them, really cute, colourful little cars that would be perfect for a boy or a girl. Given that reducing plastics is a massive thing on everyone’s minds at the minute, I loved the fact that they were made of wood. Plus the fact that being wooden, they’re a lot sturdier than most baby toys. My son found these very easy to hold. We’ve had laminate fitted recently and he spent hours pushing the cars up and down from the kitchen to the front door! These kept him entertained for ages. These certainly did help with hand-eye coordination. Especially when he lost control of a car and it shot away from him, meaning he had to find it and manipulate it out of a tight spot (usually between the legs of the dining room chairs). My son played with these every day.  He took the smaller car to bed one night! Absolutely agree this will last and can be passed down to younger siblings.  More than just being able to be passed down to siblings, they’re compact enough and so beautifully designed that they could be kept as a keepsake forever. I’d pay excess of £20. Perfect for a lasting new baby present/Christening gift.  I loved the fact that they’re reducing the amount of plastic being manufactured, they’re sturdy (took a fair few throws, falls and bites and they look good as new), and they’re so well designed that they could be kept as a keepsake.  I would buy these.  I have several friends who have had babies in the last year and I’ll certainly be looking at purchasing for 1st birthday presents. Beautifully designed, sturdy, eco-friendly and chunky enough for little hands. I’ve loved reviewing these toys, potentially more than my son has enjoyed playing with them as they gave me a few minutes peace! Honestly not a negative word to say about them; when they’ve finished their purpose I’m they’ll definitely be one of the key things I’ll keep. Natasha McIntyre – Hamish 15 Months

I liked how the packaging gave real vibes of eco-friendliness, which resonated well with me, and upon opening the box, my first impression was that the cars looked well-made and that the colours would be appealing to my little guy.  The concept is quite good – cars are always a hit with my son as are thing that fit together so this seemed like it would be a hit due to that! I like that they are naturally made and aren’t too ‘in your face’, like many toys nowadays. My child found these very easy to hold and also enjoyed playing with them.  They certainly were entertaining.  In terms of stacking the smaller car on top of the other, they do, but aside from that, I wouldn’t say they support his hand-eye coordination any more than another toy with four wheels. I kept these cars visible for my son to choose as and when he wanted. He did take them off the shelf reasonably regularly but the duration of the play was very much determined by how much it was led by an adult; when left to play by himself with these, he would play for a few minutes and then put aside, however, with an adult, doing races, following tracks, role-playing, etc., they got more use. It’s definitely a well-made toy and is clearly high-quality; despite some rough play, like being rolled in to walls etc., I feel it will hold its own and be a viable toy for future children. I quite like that it has an old-school-y, traditional vibe associated with it too, and seems like far more of an ‘heirloom’ than other toys available nowadays. While I question whether I would have paid £20 for this in the first instance, it has proven itself to be good value, especially as I have branched more in to wooden toys and see that the price is reasonable in comparison to similar wooden toys. I would much rather pay £20 for this and know that it will last, than pay £20 for a heap of plastic that will end up becoming outdated or broken over time. I liked the packaging and how the small car stacked neatly on top of the dragster. Also the colours (green & blue) were very appealing to my son and were an instant point of attraction for him! I also very much like how well-made the product is; it is clear that time and effort has been put in to making this what it is. I plan on buying the same set for my nephew in the next few months as he very much enjoyed playing with my son’s set.  I would recommend especially those who are more environmentally friendly and those who tend to buy wooden toys for their children. I would recommend getting in touch with wooden toys Edinburgh as I believe they would be interested in stocking some of these! My son really enjoyed this product and got a lot out of it, however it did require a fair amount of adult input, certainly in the beginning, to guide the play and build the motivation to play with this toy. That said, that is more of a developmental point about my son than about the toy itself, but perhaps something to take in to account all the same. I really enjoyed playing with these cars with my son and I know that my son enjoyed them due to the fact that he would choose them to play with from a large selection of toys. Overall, I would describe the product with the following points:  Good packaging; clear that the producer has considered the environment when creating it, highlights key features and points of importance. Appealing colours, nice how the cars stack on each other.  Wheels didn’t jam or lose traction easily.  Required adult support to play.  Very easy for small hands to hold and high quality – overcame some rough use.  Siobhra Cran – Sionnach 23 Months

When these arrived very impressed, packaging unique and quality looked superb.  We love wooden toys, getting so fed up with plastic toys and these were just ideal and they will last forever. My son found these very easy to hold.  He loved these, he would race them along the kitchen and living room floor and him and his dad would have individual races too.  These certainly kept him entertained for hours. With how you have to hold and push them for younger children it does help with hand-eye coordination.  He played with these every day.  These are a good design and very well made.  They will last for years and years and when we have more children they will still be in top condition to pass down to the younger sibling in the family. For the quality and longevity of this item worth every penny.  I loved the design, how easy they were to use, the fact you can stack them and ultimately the fact my son loved them.  I will be buying these for some of my nephews and already recommended.  A beautiful toy, Wooden, Eco Friendly, well designed and an investment as they will stand the test of time.  A wonderful gift for any child.  We loved them.
