Wooden cars are a classic toy that continues to delight, no matter how many new electronic toys bombard our kids with flashing lights.
HABA has a fresh new take on this toddler favorite: a mini vehicle, available as a police car or fire truck, made from beechwood, with a colorful cartoon animal driver and a button-plunger “squeak” to complete the fun.
Our police car mini-vehicle from HABA has a grinning crocodile policeman at the wheel for a little extra whimsy. The cars are just the right size for toddlers’ hands.
As they learn cause and effect, tots like toys that make noise. The squeak is a nice alternative to the headache-inducing electrical sirens on most police and fire vehicle toys. And, I was pleased to note, the push button squeak is easy to operate. Many toys with squeaks are too challenging for a toddler but this one is just right as it can be pushed with a finger or an open palm.
Soon, our newest addition will be ready to join the races with his older siblings. These mini-vehicles are so cute the older kids will want to play with his toys!
