Reviewing A Parking Garage Set For Kids

Toy Parking Garage Can Be Oodles of Fun

This Grandma finally has a little boy to buy for and I think that  the Melissa and Doug Parking Garage is something that I will get for him in the future. I love that it is made from durable wood to provide hours of fun for any little boy and not metal or plastic like so many toys of today.

The toy parking garage is suggested for children three years old or older so, I need to wait for a little while before I purchase it. There are two wooden cars that come with the set that can be lifted by an elevator to any of the four levels of parking.  Those four levels of parking provide plenty of room for all your little son's or grandson's small toy cars. The set also includes a parking booth with an attendant, a gas pump, and a car wash.

You will have to get Grandpa, Daddy, Mommy or Grandma to assemble this toy set but it comes with really easy and detailed instructions to follow. Once it is assembled the toy parking garage by Melissa and Doug measures about 17 1/4 inches tall by 15 3/4 inches wide and 15 1/4 inches deep.

I Have Seen This Toy In Action

I recently watched with delight as a little boy played with this parking garage set while I got the oil in my car changed. I was impressed with the high quality of the product and when I saw that it was a Melissa and Doug toy, I knew it was a great choice for this company to provide for little children to play with because it was built to last many years.  I noticed that someone had left little matchbox cars to be parked on the parking levels and they fit really nicely with the set.

Obviously as a Grandma, I would want to buy this for my grandson but it would also be a perfect gift for a pre-school, church nursery, or even a children's hospital play area.  Little boys and even little girls will have hours of fun playing with the Melissa and Doug Parking Garage. I can hardly wait until my little guy gets big enough to play with it.

  1. With five grandsons who are all 'car crazy' as little boys tend to be, this looks like a perfect gift. I have found the Melissa and Doug line of toys to be well-made. I particularly like the fact that this one is made of wood. I hope this is a new trend away from plastic. Thanks for this review, Bev. A new toy to put on my grandsons' gift list!

  2. Isn't it true that the first word baby boys learn to say is "Vrooom!"? It's hard to go wrong with a Melissa and Doug toy and I truly do love this one since I'm a mom of (now grown-up) boys. I don't have a "grand" yet, but I can assure you that when I do, I'll be right down there on the floor playing cars with him!

  3. This does look like a great parking garage set for kids! How cool that you can bring your own Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars too. Our son always loved cars and I have no doubt he would have loved this set. The wood would most definitely hold up to a large number of children playing with it, so I agree about the church nursery. I couldn't help but think how cool it was that the garage when you were getting your oil changed had a play garage set for children who had to wait too. Great idea!

  4. I love Melissa and Doug toys, they let kids use their imagination and are well built. My Grandson would love this one too....right now he's taken with the train, but by his birthday I'm sure he will find room for this one too....
