We love WOW Toys in this household, last year we reviewed Casey the Campervan which is still a firm favourite with MissB and MasterB. I loved it so much, I’ve since bought them for friends children as presents! This year we’ve been sent Whiz-Around Amy and Ernie the Fire Engine to review which has made MissB and MasterB very happy!
MissB automatically claimed Whiz-Around Amy as hers, now I admit I’m not one for buying gender sterotype toys and I’d have been quite happy for either child to play with Amy. I actually tend to buy non-pink prodcuts whenever I can but MissB loved it so who am I to fight a losing battle
I think one of the things MissB loves about Amy is all the little pieces, she is very much into role play at the moment (she is almost 3) and so loves putting all the different characters in the motorbike and sidecar and driving them around. The great thing is that all the other WOW toys characters fit into it too and so she has a little family of people to play with now. According to MissB, the fireman much prefers driving the motorbike when he isn’t at work in Ernie the Fire Engine

4 removable figures: a kitten in a basket called Tilly, Ted the Teddy bear, Annabelle the girl and a bouquet of flowers
I love that WOW toys appeal to children over a wide age range, last year we had Casey the Campervan to review and it has been played with constantly since then, both by MissB and her little brother MasterB (20 months old now). The toys are designed to be appealing and they certainly are. MasterB loves the friction motion and the sounds they make as he pushes them around the floor, mummy particular likes that there are NO BATTERIES required!!

MasterB has been playing with Ernie the Fire Engine mostly, quite possibly because MissB already claimed Whiz Around Amy. He loves the ladder than turns around and he is obsessed with driving it around the floor shouting nee nah nee nah at the top of this voice

We now have three WOW toys and they are currently top of the toy box! Both children love playing with them and even better, they will sit and play happily TOGETHER with them which is always lovely to see. As a parent, I love how bright and colourful they are and how well made WOW toys are. Trust me, if a toy is destructible, my two will find a way to destroy it and seeing as neither child has managed to destroy Casey the Campervan after a years use, I’d say Whiz-Around Amy and Ernie the Fire Engine are in safe hands
You can buy WOW toys in various stores or online. You can check here for a full list of their stockists, I have included links to them on Amazon below Seriously at around £9 for Amy and £12.50 for Ernie, they are a fantastic price and will definitely make great christmas presents for your toddlers this year!
Some product reviews are so easy to write and this is one of them. When Wow Toys sent us a toy for MissB to review we were ever so excited when Casey Camper Van turned up in the post! As soon as I saw what was in the box I just knew that MissB was going to love it and it didn’t prove me wrong!
Casey is a fab friction controlled camper van so it doesn’t need batteries, which is always a HUGE plus point in this household. But the fun doesn’t stop at just pushing Casey around, once you open up Casey there is living accomodation inside the campervan and the roof pulls down to reveal a garden with a hop skotch. Casey comes with a boy and a girl figure (renamed by MissB as MasterB and MissB), a picnic table, a dog and a dog basket. There are also a couple of luggage parcels which fit into the shape indentations on the roof. MissB has spent hours playing with Casey already, she loves putting the different figures to bed or in the driving seat, or sitting them down for a picnic.
If I was being picky, the only small problem we have with Casey is that MissB finds it a bit difficult to open the roof out by herself and gets frustrated with it occasionally. She has only been using it 2 days though so I’m sure she will master it. Apart from this it has been love at first sight here. When she gets up in the morning, Casey is the first toy she goes to and if MissB had her way Casey would be going in the bath with her and into bed at night :rolleyes:
When reviewing items, we like to guess the price if we aren’t already aware of it. This way we can work out whether we think it is valued at around the right price. Both my husband and I thought £20 would be a reasonable price and we were spot on. We found it on Amazon here for £19.95
We in the Brown household think Casey would make a fantabulous gift for any toddler 18+ months for Christmas. It’s fun, provides hours of entertainment and best of all it doesn’t need batteries so you won’t be desperately looking for any on Christmas Day
