I love the freshness and “brand new” of spring — green grass, gorgeous tulips and daffodils, bird songs in the early morning and all the time we can spend with the house opened up to fresh air. It’s also the time of working outside, prepping the garden and kids tossing off all the cumbersome jackets, coats and heavy clothes of winter to enjoy everything “outdoors”. Spring is freedom, fresh air and new starts. It’s the peals of laughter and non-stop chatter of kids wafting through the open windows on warm breezes. It’s fun! And our newest toy from Toy State played a huge part in all the giggles, this weekend!
The Hot Wheels Energy R/C Can from Toy State may actually be one of my favorite remote control cars of all time. That’s not a typo. I really did say c-a-n, instead of car. It’s all about the way this little hot rod is packaged. The ingenious design of this newest addition to the Hot Wheels line, is perfect for our preschool grandson (and his older sisters). All components are built to fit small hands perfectly and store back inside the handy canister the car is packaged in. Even your littlest R/C fans will be able to handle this equipment and feel like one of the “big kids”. Clean-up and storage is a cinch. Look at how easy it is to put the car away or remove it to play (even for Grandma)!
The gorgeous, sunny weather had our grandkids spending lots of time outdoors, this weekend and this little R/C race car stayed close by our four-year-old grandson’s side, inside and outside. It’s just so easy for him to handle and to put away when he’s finished. I love that it can give him a sense of independence and “big boy-ness”. Everything he needs to play with, or to store, the car is contained in the can. The can has a handle so he can tote it around with him everywhere he goes and it’s small and lightweight. Perfect four four- (almost five) year-old fun! The controls are simple and easy to operate, too. This mini racer uses two AAA batteries in the car and two in the remote. There is an on/off switch on the bottom of the car, to conserve battery power.
Another new Toy State vehicle that was added to our growing collection, was the VW Hatchback. It’s part of Toy State’s Road Rippers line. Lifting the hatch on the back end, reveals a light-up, rotating speaker bed. Closing and reopening the hatch, rotates the speaker to show one of three different sides. Each side has a slightly different speaker layout, lights and music.
Like all Toy State toys, we found that this nifty little vehicle was built to handle the rough and tumble creative play of real kids. I love the durability and dependability we can count on with this brand. And fun is just a given. EVERY game has some element of a race, in it, when the kids are playing with Toy State vehicles. 🙂 This weekend was no exception, to racing, or to rough and tumble fun.
The thing about adding new toys, is that you really should be packing away or donating a few of the old ones to keep them from taking over your play area. Spring is the perfect time to spruce up your toy box, just like the other areas of your home. Donate unused toys that your own kids have outgrown and that someone else will still get hours of fun and enjoyment from. When unused and forgotten toys are cleared away, then there is plenty of space for some brand new fun! It will be simple to fill in the gaps with some active and creative toys from Toy State. From Caterpillar construction toys, to R/C toys for all ages, to Hot Wheels and Road Rippers, you’ll find vehicles packed with light, movement, sound and giggle-producing fun!
