As a BzzAgent, I received the Little People City Skyway set to try out and to review.
First, when I received the box my 4-year-old son was excited to "help" me put this together. Everything is in pieces, so be prepared and have a good screwdriver. It took me about 30 minutes to complete. The directions were very clear and easy to understand; the pieces are all labeled. It's tempting to just start putting things together but make sure you go in the correct order.
When it was finally put together, My son and 16-month-old daughter had a blast playing with the City Skyway. It comes with two cars - which is perfect for them since they can both play at the same time. This set is tall and has two ramps, a crane, a gate, and even a gas pump. The colors are vibrant and the characters are fun. It keeps them interested for longer because of all the different "activities" and that once a car is placed at the top, it can come down several different ways. I'm also pleased that this toy can be fun for a wider age-range and it's for both girls and boys. Both my 16-month old daughter and my 4-year-old son could play with this toy, together or separately. And the benefits for him are creativity and imaginative play and for her it benefits her coordination and fine-motor skills.
Overall, even though it was a bit laborious to put together, this toy is definitely worth the effort, time, and a value for the money. I would purchase this toy for my children, for others as a gift, and I would definitely recommend this and other "Little People" toys to other parents.
