TOO MANY CARS!   5 GIFT IDEAS THAT AREN'T CARS.

Are there too many cars in your toy box? It’s a hard thing to determine, what is too many? Is it more than 20, or more than 200?

 

Many boys would say that there is no such things as too many cars. Although I agree and I find it hard to understand the concept of 'too many cars', I do think there should be more to play time than racing cars around the imaginary race track.

 

Often, with Lucas,  it was the relatives that didn’t want to buy more cars, ‘He has too many cars already’ they would say to me. Though they didn’t see that each car had a personality and was treated differently. Some good for racing, some better for hard work or destruction derby.  Of course they wanted to buy something different, something unique, not another set of wheels when they thought they all looked the same anyway.

 

So if you are like me, and have a car loving little boy, who has so many cars that you can’t even count them all…then read on, because we have some great ideas for toys that they will love.  Let's add variety in their play! 

We know what you’re looking for and we have the answer for you.  

 

1 - ADD SOME ROADS

First option for a car lover - You buy them roads of course!

 

WaytoPlay roads, rubber roads that go anywhere.

These WAYTOPLAY roads are wide enough to have cars driving in both directions. They are thick rubber which is flexible and tough enough to go on the carpet, outside on the grass or even in the sandpit.

We also love that, because it comes in pieces, you can make the road different each time you play.

 

OYOY Adventure rug,  decorative and fun.

2 - STORAGE

When you have 'too many cars' you need a spot to store them all. That is why this playmat is a winner with Mum and the kids.

This storage mat holds all the cars, and then when the kids are ready for play time you have roads for them to drive their cars on. We love the fabulous details like a petrol bowser and a car park

 

 

3 - TOY HOUSES 

So when you have roads, and you have cars, how about adding some buildings to your play space. When you add buildings, you add that element of role play where the cars are going to visit, or are off to the store.

4 - Road signs

If you have cars, roads and buildings you will soon need traffic signs. A great way to teach the kids about road safety, and also help keep order in your little village.

There is nothing wrong with playing with cars for hours and hours and hours, if the kids are engaged and enjoying themselves.

The toys we have suggested will extend their play and keep the car lovers engaged, while allowing them more opportunities for role play. It will help kids to play together as there will be more chance for interaction and non-car lovers will have additional play opportunities.     It’s also a great way to keep Mum interested during play time!
