With a large family full of active children, toys that stand the test of time are an important part of our family-fun activity. We’ve all had the experience of buying toys for kids and grandkids that were received with enthusiasm and excitement, only to find that by the end of the day, the children have gotten bored and moved on to something else or the toy is actually broken. That’s why I have gotten so excited about Toy State and why I applied to be a Toy State Test Driver, earlier this year. Of all the toys I have given to my kids and grandkids in recent years, Toy State have been durable, fun to play with and inspired creativity and imagination like no others. I like that they are built tough enough to handle REAL play with REAL kids and that when my grandkids get to my home, they’re the first toys they go to find. Plus, they’re affordable and easy to find in stores we shop at anyway – like Walmart, Target, K-mart or Toys R Us. The other great thing about Toy State Toys is that my big “kids”, (defined husband, son-in-law, and teenage son 🙂 ) have as much fun with these great toys as the little ones. We are DEFINITELY a Toy State family. It’s not hard to see why, when you look at all they have to offer.
The CAT Construct Dough Bulldozer was a huge hit and with an audience I hadn’t expected — my granddaughters! It turns out that if you add Construct Dough to a bulldozer with imprint stamps, girls become construction toy fans! They literally spent hours playing and building, shaping tools and building “roads”. They giggled and laughed and had a blast and eventually…they let their little brother play. 🙂
The lime green Road Ripper Motor Muscle Remote Control Car “inspired” all of the kids in our family, young and old alike. lol My husband and son-in-law spent as much time racing it through the house as the kids. They ran it over carpet, hardwood and vinyl. And as with all things that kids get their hands on, it withstood some rough and tumble crashes, (one down the basement stairs) into furniture, walls and people. Of course, I’m not recommending any of those, but I want you to know that this high-quality remote control vehicle withstood everything my family threw at it. It’s durable and incredibly fun.
This new CAT Mini-Dump Truck was a welcome addition to the construction site, too. In combination with the CAT Bulldozer Construct Dough set the kids had a full-scale construction site underway and using their imaginations, enjoyed hours of building and construction fun!
Because it was ALWAYS on the go, I could never get any good action shots of our Road Rippers Rock & Roller. With just a push of a button this dragster zipped across the room, raced it’s engine or “danced” back and forth while playing music. Even the youngest kids loved this motorized car because it was easy to operate and was built tough. Check out Toy’s State’s video of the Rock & Roller.
Our family doesn’t get tired of Toy State. There’s some new action-packed, imagination stretching game packed into them each time they pick up one of these well-built, high-quality toy vehicles. I’m looking forward to sharing a few more ideas with you over the next couple weeks, as you begin preparing your holiday shopping lists. Toy State will be the perfect affordable option for all the big and little “motorheads” on your Christmas list and you’ll love the great value you get for your money! Make playtime a family event when you bring fun Toy State toys into your home.
