WOW Toys – Penny’s Pooch ‘n’ Ride {Review}

October 18, 2011
When the very kind people at WOW toys offered to send Roo Penny’s Pooch ‘n’ Ride I knew that she would very happy to play with it and tell me all about it.
The box contains:
1x Friction-powered car called Penny
1x Girl figure called Chloe
1x Dog figure called Roxy
1x Removable dog basket with two puppies

Developmental Benefits:

  • From 1½ years – Sensory stimulation and motor skill development
  • From 2 years – Discovery & learning
  • From 2½ years – Social interaction
  • From 3 years – Role-play & exploration

Roo loved driving along and picking up Chloe, Roxy and the puppies
  • The car moved well on both carpet and tiled floors
  • The figures were a good size, big enough for little hands to hold and play with easily
  • There is a latch on the back of the car that allows you to attach a trailer, so if you have any other WOW vehicle sets you can mix and match the trailers between the vehicles
  • Aimed at children between 18mths and 5yrs, WOW toys are designed to grow with the child to allow them to play with them for longer than the average toy

Roo really enjoyed the role play aspect of the toy (she even made a garage for the car and a house for Chloe & Roxy to love in). She loved that the car moved easily backwards and forwards (with no horrible clicking that you get with some motorised toys).

Tigger managed to have a little play with this too when Roo wasn’t looking and he really liked the figures, and even in his little hands he could grip them easily.
The best bit for me (and probably every parent)… A drawing of a face

I must admit to thinking that WOW toys were aimed at boys… BUT I was so so wrong, they have a fabulous selection of toys for girls and most of their toys are unisex so you could purchase for any child
Disclosure: We received Penny’s Poocj’n’Ride FOC for the purpose of review
