How big are the WayToPlay roads?
We have had so many people asking us - 'How big are the Waytoplay roads?'
So we have decided to give you the answer in the best way we know how. By comparing them to our toy cars.
Frequently Asked Question:
Our thinking is that when you ask 'How big are those WaytoPlay roads?' You are really asking which toy cars will fit on those fabulous roads?
Side note: The Brand is Waytoplay not Way To Play, So if you search for them on the website, try searching for Waytoplay.
The technical answer
The size of the roads, in centimetres, is listed on the product pages.
They are all 11 cm wide.
Every track is the same width. The different sets are longer or have different corners and turns, but they are all the same width.
OK, so does that fit a matchbox car, a big truck, a small truck?
No one wants to go back and forwards between the cars products, writing down the sizes and then comparing that to the size of a WayToPlay road! #whosgottimeforthat?
What cars fit on my WayToPlay roads?
All cars is the simple answer. Kids do not care if the cars take up the whole road. The youngsters especially have no concept that the road should be 2 way.
But that is a cop out - and we didn't get your attention to tell you, well, nothing!
So here are some of the car toys that we know and love, and some pictures of how they sit on a WayToPlay track.
Candylab cars come in the original size, a junior size and a mini size.
The mini size Candylab cars were made to fit on the Waytoplay roads, so they fit perfectly in the parking spaces.
The Candylab junior car is a size that fits really well on one side of the road.
Candylab junior taxi and police car.
The larger orignial Candylab toy cars also it on the WayToPlay roads really well, but aren't as happy to share the road.

Le Toy Van Monte Carlo Racecars
We love the Le Toy Van Monte Carlo race car set. Fun race cars are so fun, and they fit so very well on the WayToPlay roads.
We would pair them with the WaytoPlay Grand Prix set for a great gift.
Monte Carlo race cars by Le Toy Van are the perfect size for a race track.
Playforever race cars are super shiny and sleek. They are a bit big for the roads, but they are a bit like the James Bond of toy cars. They will fit in anywhere, and cause a scene. Forever, Play forever.

Grimms convertible cars are so cute and they love to drive to the shops and all around town.

Helle owns Lucas loves cars. Working with toys since 2012, she has played with toys for a long time and is very picky about which toys make the list. Like a spoilt child, she will have a tantrum if the toy doesn't work and will play for hours if she finds it engaging and fun. Or until someone tells her it's time for lunch.
