Wheelie Good Fun
Take a trip to two of the world's most iconic cities with these updated versions of our best loved mini vehicles sets.
Crafted from FSC® certified wood, which is wood sourced from sustainably managed forests, each play piece now features a set of completely wooden wheels, replacing the older plastic variants.
The London Wooden Toy Car Set comprises no less than 7 vehicles, synonymous with England’s amazing capital city.
Take a ride through the big smoke on a traditional red London Bus, hail a Black Taxicab, imagine the flashing lights and sounds of the Fire Engine, Police Van and Ambulance and whizz about town in the two sporty style cars. Each chunky play piece is highly durable and built to last, hand painted using non-toxic, water-based paints for child safe fun.
A truly wonderful toy to ignite young imaginations and inspire creative play, day after day.
New York, New York
Take a trip to the Big Apple with the New York Mini Vehicles Set. Zoom around and take in all the sights and sounds of this cosmopolitan city with this delightful 7-piece set.
Ride along the busy streets in the articulated truck embossed with the US flag, wave to the school bus, go for a drive in a famous yellow taxi and watch out for the fire truck, NYPD police car and ambulance as they whizz by on their way to their next emergency.
Perfectly sized for small hands, they are a wonderful addition to any little one’s imaginary play universe.
A great gift idea, and ideal stocking filler in the run up to Christmas, these sweet sets also make wonderful travel buddies. Their small size means they won’t take up too much room and little ones will love having them to hand.
Why not ramp up the fun by pairing them with the amazing Le Grand Garage. This award-winning toy is a real showstopper and is jam packed with interactive elements for realistic role play adventures.
Or, why not add one of our versatile playmats that can easily be rolled up for easy storage when not in use. An excellent base for dreaming up mini adventures, they are crafted from felt with a non-slip backing. Choose from rural farmyards to exciting cityscapes.
What’s more our car sets are fully compatible with all of our wooden train tracks – just the ticket for extended play possibilities. Shop the full range.
You can shop our beautiful collection of sustainable wooden toys and treasures at our online store.
