This post was brought to you by Toy State. I received samples free of charge to facilitate my review.
Having two boys, I’m more than a little familiar with cars. In fact, there is always something zooming by my feet or being put together in my living room. And while I admittedly used to be a girly girl, that has all changed and I can no make racing noises with the best of them. So I’m always on the lookout for amazing toys that embrace the things that my boys adore. And when I heard that Toy State had a fabulous line of racing vehicle and construction toys, I knew I had hit the jackpot when it came to my guys!
When I found out that we would be receiving an assortment of Toy State toys to try, I didn’t tell the boys. Because I wanted to truly be able to surprise them in a way that they would think was fabulous. And when the box arrived at our front door, it did not disappoint. From MillerBug to J-Man, age made no difference. Because as soon as my boys saw those awesome sets, they were in racing heaven. One of the things I loved was that all the toys really worked for both of their ages. And while some items grabbed J-Man’s attention more than MillerBug’s, each item could be used for either of them! Let me show you want I mean!
Let’s start with the CAT Mini Playsets. These tiny sets are hours of fun and are perfect for little hands. It was actually the first thing that MillerBug gravitated to when our box arrived. And he sat and took the rock piece in and out of the CAT truck and pushed it around for hours. I was worried that the size of this set would keep him from having tons of fun but I was totally wrong!
To pair with the CAT Mini Playsets, the CAT Shipping Port Playset is perfect! It’s a more detailed CAT mini that has sounds, music and fun phrases. It allows your child to create a little city where they can place their new CAT toys on ramps, pulleys and more. This toy has been the perfect rainy day solution for MillerBug as it holds his attention for hours! He is delighted every time the lights come on and loves to “work” with the set. Combined with the Mini Playsets, it’s the perfect way to thrill your little one!
Next, both the boys got into the Road Rippers Wheelie Bikes! I have to say, this is one fun toy! With music, lights and the ability to race across the room, it’s perfect for a variety of ages! The two wheels on the bottom give the bike stability so that it can race across floors without tipping over. This was one toy that the boys both fought over and wanted. It was little enough for MillerBug to be entranced yet grown up enough to make J-Man dream of days atop a bike!
Also perfect for boys from little to big, Road Rippers Hatchbacks is a great combination of lights, words and actions! The MINI Countryman WRC plays awesome, fun music when you pop the hatchback up. With pulsing lights and a great sound, it’s a car that grabs your attention and doesn’t let go! J-Man loves to races this one while MillerBug could just open and close the hatch all day long, listing to the music and watching the lights! And when it’s time to go, he’s ready to race it away!
Now from big vehicles onto smaller ones! J-Man fell in love with the 007 M16 Remote Control Car! This tiny car, which is controlled with a watch-like device, is the perfect sleek toy for growing boys! This was one toy that was completely J-Man’s and he ate up every second of it. He’s just getting to the age where fast cars are super cool and this toy completely captured his imagination. And since it’s the perfect size to take on the go, he was able to share it with all his friends, making him feel super cool!
Finally, MillerBug found his favorite toy in GearHeads. I kid you not when I say this truck has rolled down every single hill in our neighborhood multiple times. The figurine comes with a hat that is the perfect fit to help screw tires on and off of the truck and the sturdiness of the car can stand up to any rough and tumble boy! GearHeads have provided hours and hours of fun for both the boys as their imagination took over and brought the cars to life!
Overall, I could not be more thrilled with the Toy State Toys. Whether you have boys or girls, if they love cars and construction, these are sets that you can’t afford to miss! The surprises never end and the lights and action that they bring are sure to keep play constantly fun. I know that there will be many afternoons in our home filled with the sounds and sights of little boy fun thanks to the awesome products that Toy State provides. Toy after toy, these items don’t disappoint! Be sure to check them out for yourself today!
