Here in My Car,
This review is from: Melissa & Doug Stack and Count Parking Garage (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The simple toys are often the most popular with a toddler and for this reason you see a lot of the similar things coming onto the market – blocks, pegs etc. Melissa & Doug have started producing quality wooden toys that give a slight twist and the ‘Stack and Count Parking Garage’ certainly falls into this category. The toy is made of top quality wood and the cars are very well painted. The fun is dropping the cars in at the top and taking from the bottom. A nice touch is the level indicator that shows you how many cars you have left. This can be useful as the cars will often not be put back in the right order.
Like the majority of toys and games from Melissa & Doug the ‘Parking Garage’ is top quality, especially the wood itself. However, unlike a lot of their range this has some plastic elements that are not quite as good. Both the pegs that you use to pull the cars out and the little barrier are plastic. It would have made for the perfect toy if these had also been in painted wood and I cannot really see a reason why they were not.
This is a small issue that does not affect how fun the toy is to play with. The vibrant colours and appealing look means that it will be a favourite in the house and also look good when tidied up.
