Little Boys and Car-Related Toys
|Grandson Tyler with Driver Toy|
I have five grandsons who all live over 1,000 miles from me. Therefore, it is often difficult to know just what toys the boys already have and what they are wishing for. At birthday and Christmas times I have to rely on the parents (my 'kids') for gift suggestions.
This past Christmas, I asked my youngest son for gift ideas for 6-year-old David and 20 month old Tyler. David was easy – a Star Wars Lego set. For toddler boy Tyler, the suggestion was any toy with buttons to push, knobs to turn and NOISES.
While doing an online search with this criteria in mind, I came across what I thought might be the 'perfect' toy for Tyler. It's similar to one I bought for my oldest grandson (now 19) when HE was Tyler's age and remembered what a big hit it was, since little boys appear to be 'car crazy' from birth. I think it's part of their DNA!
The toy I bought for Tyler was the VTech Turn and Learn Driver Toy
|Available on Amazon|
This toy car has three play modes, so your little driver can learn in animal, driving or music mode.
This toy is from Vtech Kids, a division of Vtech® considered a world leader in age-appropriate and developmental stage-based electronic learning products for children. The company has been making quality educational toys for children for over 35 years.
Baby Tyler's opinion? He thought having his own steering wheel was the greatest thing he'd seen. I watched him open the box Christmas morning over Skype and he virtually ignored the rest of the gifts offered him to open. All he wanted to do was turn the steering wheel back and forth and honk the horn and push all the buttons! He loved it. And it was such fun for this grandma to watch his reaction to this toy and know I'd made the best gift choice possible.
The VTech Turn and Learn Driver Toy operates on 2 AA batteries and is recommended for babies and toddlers in the 6 months to 3 year old range. Tyler, at 20 months, is the perfect age for this cute and colorful interactive toy. It also comes in a variety of colors. I chose the bright Yellow one with the red steering wheel.
