This Fisher Price Little People Sit ‘n Stand Skyway Review is part of the new Hottest Toys for Kids series that I will be sharing here on Saving Dollars and Sense that will highlight each of the hottest toys for the 2016 holiday toy season.
Each year we wait to see which toys will make it onto the Walmart Toy List so that we will know which toys your kiddos will be asking for and which toys will be in high demand. For the next couple weeks, I will choose one new toy from the list to share with you so you can be an informed shopper this year.
Little kids love playing with cars and the Fisher Price Little People Sit ‘n Stand Skyway offers plenty of fun to spark their imagination. There are little roads that they can propel their vehicles up and down over.
The skyway – which made Walmart’s Hottest 25 Toys List for 2016 – has plenty of bright colors and interesting stops along the way – such as the town that’s part of the Skyway. Kids can run imaginary errands in their vehicles or stop for a visit just like Mom and Dad.
When their tank of gas is getting low, they can pause at the gas pump to get a refill and keep on playing. From top to bottom, the Skyway will entertain your child. The set is a little above three feet in height, which makes it the perfect size for toddlers to be able to reach.
By putting their cars at the very top of the Skyway and letting go, they can delight to see the vehicles speed down all the roadways and ramps. Kids love making their cars go into the car wash and being in control of lifting up the gates to let their cars go on their way.
The ramps are spiral, which helps keep the vehicles in place as they zip around the toy until they reach the end of the road. The set takes minimal assistance once it’s put together to get it ready for your child to play with and it can switch from a roadway to the tower.
This two way configuration doubles your child’s playing fun. You can change it from a sit down toy to a stand up one. What some parents do is they use the toy in the sit down mode for younger children until their child is a little older.
You can also use the Matchbox cars with this set as your child gets older. Included in the set are two of the Wheelies cars. This toy is suitable for kids who are one and a half up to five years old.
As well as being a fun toy, it also offers some educational value. It encourages physical activity, hand-eye coordination and putting objects in place. Batteries are not needed for this toy, but there is some assembly required and depending on your handiness with putting things together, the timing to get it set up might vary.
The toy doesn’t dismantle once you have everything screwed into place. So you can’t store it in a toy box, but you can tuck it in a corner or into a closet if you need to get it out of the way.
