This is a great toy from Fisher Price offering enjoyment to any child who loves cars, and enjoys the excitement of seeing vehicles rushing down spiral circuits and even doing a loop the loop.

With this toy, there is some basic construction required, but it's pretty easy (even I can do it), and you'll have it up and running in about 20 minutes. If you're giving this as a gift perhaps allocate some time to constructing it and presenting the toy ready made for optimum excitement.
Once it's up, your kids will enjoy the zoom of the cars and the fun noises that the park makes at various points of the vehicle's journey. I have marveled at how long both of my sons can play with this fun toy for. My kids are aged 1 yr and 3.5 yrs, and they play happily for a good while with this toy and there's space and room for a couple of kids to play side by side without getting on top of each other. For my littlest son, he's learning all about the cause and effect of letting go of the car at the top of the slide, and improving his motor skills in doing so, whereas my eldest son loves the havoc of sending as many cars as possible down the slide at one time.
Great toy for kids that love to zoooooom
This is a great toy that stands just over 2 feet tall making it perfect for kids that have learnt to stand and want a toy that is at their height. It's an amusement park for the 2 cars that are included, but for extra fun, either purchase some more Little People vehicles or use your own mini cars on the ramps too. The park features two swirly ramps that spiral to the floor with cool sound effects on exit, as well as one loop the loop roller coaster ramp. The age guidance for this toy is 1.5 yrs to 5 yrs, although my 1 year old is already getting a lot of fun out of it. This toy brings a lot of entertainment, and seems to hold the interest of a child very easily. My only one criticism (and it's a minor one), is that because the toy is made out of plastic, it can get a bit 'pushed and pulled' when there are multiple kids scrambling over it; if there was more weight to the base or overall construction this may have improved sturdiness.
I would give this a 9/10 and would recommend for parents of youngsters who love playing with cars.
