Road Rippers by Toy State is one of my favorite brands for toy vehicles. I can always count on their cars, trucks, bikes and aircraft to be well-made and durable, so no matter which one of our crew is playing with them, I’m confident they will stand up to the wear and tear. Plus, Road Rippers come in a wide array of colors, models and sizes with features that appeal to all ages. Last, but not least, Toy State vehicles are affordable for families on a frugal budget. I have never seen prices that come close to comparing for quality toy cars, trucks, and other vehicles. We love the remote control ones, but even the ones that aren’t, are a blast to play with. I’ll share our latest RC Road Ripper in an upcoming post, but today, I want to show you some exciting and affordable Road Ripper options for the youngest car lovers on your Christmas list. As a Toy State Test Driver, I and my family, have the opportunity to test many of these high-quality and fabulously fun vehicles and I couldn’t be more excited to share two of our recent favorites — Lightning Blast and Street Beatz.
Toy State‘s Lightning Blast VW Bus is a van, with flashing lights, motor sounds and music. It runs on “preschooler-power”, since this model isn’t motorized. That leaves room for tons of preschool imagination, creativity and fun. Our grandson rolls it all through the house, flashing the lights, honking the horn and enjoying the music! He built a “garage” under my wingback chair, this weekend, and spent hours giving voice to all kinds of “characters” who were driving the Road Rippers he played with. The Lightning Blast series at Toy State, includes two models, the VW Bus and a blue Chrysler 300C. Your favorite little car collectors can have their choice. Rolling in at an unbelievably inexpensive $6.99, you can afford to park BOTH of them under the wingback chair, this Christmas! 🙂 Here’s a video of the look and sounds of the Lightning Blast VW Bus.
Blue or green are the options when selecting a Road Ripper from the Street Beatz line. Our family got to test the blue car and the kids fell in love with its speed, sound and motorized motion! The Street Beatz racer has three speakers mounted on the back and as the music plays, you can actually watch the “drum” of the large speaker pulsing up and down. This is the perfect car to transition your kids from push cars toward remote control cars. They don’t control where the car goes, like with a real RC, but they get the thrill of pushing the button that revs up that motor and sends the car speeding across the room in forward drive. The other two buttons on the vehicle play music and car sounds. Street Beatz cars are motorized, have working lights, music and realistic car sounds. They use three “AA” batteries and retail for only $15.99!!!
Look for Toy State cars wherever toys are sold, including Walmart and Amazon.com.

Whose left on your shopping list that would love a high quality vehicle from Toy State? I’ll bet you can find several who would have as much fun as these two, whether they’re racing Road Rippers around the room or just “chillin’ and listening to some tunes”!
