Inspire Creative Play with Wow Toys

Twin Race Cars and a Royal Princess Carriage from WOW Toys

Bubbles is at a fun stage with her toy play right now.  You can almost see the little wheels turning in her head as she thinks about how she wants to interact with them.  Blocks have gone from just random stacking and tall towers to creating paths for cars to follow and walls to hide behind for hide and seek.  Baby dolls get fed and tucked in, while her pets get “washed” and go for walks.

Of course not all creative play with her toys makes sense – to me, at least.  More than one princess has found her way into the fridge instead of her toy bins when it’s time for pick up.  Horses sometimes get to drive the tractors while the farmers ride in the wagon.  And some of those dog baths have taken place in the soup pot from her kitchen.  It can be hard not to say “Oh no, honey, here, this is how you do it” (though I do have to occasionally remind her the ice cream cone is just for pretend and please don’t actually lick it).   But I try my best to encourage her creativity, imagination, and role play.

So when her princess and horse-drawn carriage ended up at the starting line with two twin race cars (one driven by the prince that normally steers the carriage) I didn’t bother explaining that a horse was going to be no match for a race car.  I just watched the action!  The race cars are friction-powered so once they’re revved up a bit they definitely can out-race the horse, but she evens the playing field by running the horse down the hall ahead of them.  (She also squeals with delight when I send the cars racing after her.)

Royal Carriage with Princess and Prince from WOW Toys

Honestly I don’t think there’s a single one of their PVC- and battery-free (that’s right: no batteries needed) toys that I wouldn’t love for Bubbles.  They offer such a wide range of choices and each one would help teach your child something new, like opening up discussions about the people who help us by playing with the rescue helicopter, ambulance, and police car.  One that I plan to order for my cousin to give her son (due any day now – her due date was Friday) on his first birthday is this adorable combine.  When we were younger her father drove a combine for a bit during the harvest season and I think she’d get a kick out of him having a toy like that.

I think you’d love to own these toys, too.  In addition to the fun factor the durability was a pleasant surprise.  Bubbles may be a girl but she can rough up a toy with the best of them.  The race cars have bounced off a few baseboards and sometimes the prince seems to like to drive the carriage off the side of the couch.  These toys should survive many years which is especially great if you’d like to hand down to younger siblings.  And placing the figurines in and out of their vehicles is great for coordination and fine motor skills.

WOW Toys and I would love for you to have one of these toys for your kiddo so one winner will be able to choose either the carriage with prince and princess or the twin race cars.  Giveaway closed.
