There are 3 reasons I love it:
1) It’s wooden and wooden toys just look a hell of a lot nicer when you are looking at a room full of toys
2) It’s sturdy and seems pretty unbreakable
3) I had one when I was a little girl!
You see I was a HUGE fan of cars as a little girl and Little Dimples seems to have followed in the same vein.
I remember having a little scooter like this and driving it madly around whilst ‘brrruuuuummmmming’ and pretending I was driving, and sure enough when it came out of the box she did exactly the same.
She is 2 1/4 and it’s officially for children from 18 months, so I was a little worried that she wouldn’t like it. But as my 6yo son has also played with it, I reckon it will be long lasting.
Let’s hope she doesn’t grow up to be as car obsessed as me, because at about 5years old I stole my Dads car keys to his sports car, so that I could go and sit in it and go ‘brrrruuuummm’ and flash the popup headlights lots …. until the battery went flat; there was no way I was getting out of that one!
But I could be too late, if you check out this video of her over a year ago, the FIRST time she sat in the driving seat of my old car:
I’m doomed aren’t I? I sense many worried nights ahead of me when she gets older!
