We’ve been lucky enough to review several toys from the Wow range in the past, and I am a great fan. The toys are so bright and colourful and when I put a boxful of toys out, the Wow toys are always the first to catch the attention of young ones.
Sam the Steam Train is a new addition to the range, and a much bigger toy than we have seen before – there is so much here to keep children (recommended age range 1.5 to 5 years) occupied. He has a motorised engine – just push and go to keep children on the move – with whistle sound (not too noisy!) and a detachable passenger coach. The engine moves smoothly along the floor; just press down the chimney to sound the whistle in case of any obstructions en route! The coach, which easily hooks onto the engine, offers lots of play value with opening side and roof which when opened reveals stairs from the platform into the coach. Inside the coach are a table and chairs for passengers to sit in, plus beds up on a balcony; the walls are colourfully decorated. There are also three figures – an engine driver and two passengers.
No batteries are needed – this is a great feature of Wow Toys. The quality is superb – there are no rough edges and everything is really sturdy and durable (our previous toys still look as good as new). Wow Toys really encourage imaginative play as well as developing fine motor skills; they are also super to encourage two or more children to play together. It can be hard to find toys for children of 1+ as so many are marked as suitable for over 3; Wow Toys really fill a gap in the market. Find out more about Sam and buy him from Wow Toys here. Look out for the colourful Wow Toys displays in shops, garden centres and elsewhere – you can’t miss them and I can guarantee your child won’t!
