Buzzing Brains Parking Garage from Kiddicare

My boys love cars and are always zooming around the room with them so when Kiddicare got in touch asking us to review the Buzzing Brains Parking Garage, I knew that the boys would love it. We were in fact looking for a nice garage to get them for Christmas so this was the perfect time to try one out and see how it faired. 

The Buzzing Brains Parking Garage is a huge garage that is set on three levels. Over the 3 levels there are parking slots, a working elevator and a service station. The service station is on the ground floor and has a car wash, a repair centre and 2 fuel pumps. There are traffic lights which tell the cars when they can move and a sign which, when twisted, opens the lever so that cars can pass through. 

Now, just before I explain how we got on, the garage does say suitable for 3 years plus but Charlie, who is 2, loved playing with it and enjoyed being able to push the cars around it. I think the age limit may be more due to some of the small parts but as long as you keep and eye on younger children, they should be okay to play with it.

It comes in quite a few pieces which did daunt me at first but actually, it is quite easy to put together. If you follow the instructions and keep an eye on the box, you can follow it well and build it in no time. The stickers were also easy to work out where they went although the one problem we did incur was that the parking spaces were set opposite to the marks on the plastic garage itself. This didn't really matter too much as you couldn't notice the marks much any way.

The garage is very striking in bright,bold colours that stand out a mile away. Not only does it have 3 ramps that speed the cars down to the floor, but it has all the extras in between. From the working lift, which takes the cars up and down the floors, to the garage at the base where the cars can get fixed, fill up on petrol and have a wash too.

All the objects, colours and pieces are there to stimulate children's senses and develop their skills. I love it and so do the boys. The twisting for the lift, directions of the ramps, levers and accuracy to put the petrol pumps away are all there to help children learn.

The Buzzing Brains Parking Garage is supposed to be £39.99  but at the moment it has money off and is down to £26.66. Not only that but it is also included in Kiddicares 3 for 2 promotion. So actually 2 discounts altogether.

You can check out the Kiddicare 3 for 2 promotion on their website and maybe get your Christmas presents sorted for cheaper this year!
