A Review of The Viking Toys City Garage Playset And Cute Racers, Also By Viking Toys

We’ve been looking for the perfect garage for Number Two for a while.

Number One had a lovely wooden one. But although I’m usually a huge fan of wooden toys I knew I wanted something different for Number Two.

So when Viking Toys sent us their Viking City Garage Playset to test out we were thrilled. There is so much to love about this fantastic product.

From its fantastic easy to work lift to its entrance and exit barrier, this is a product designed with toddlers in mind. There are none of the usual frustrations as said toddler struggles to operate the various functions. Instead Number Two was able to independently do both – something that greatly improved both his and my enjoyment of the product.

I love the attention to detail and determination to enhance children’s creative play opportunities which Viking Toys display throughout the product.

The petrol pump is my personal favourite. Because it really does provide a lovely addition. With moveable nozzles allowing children to ‘really’ fill their cars with petrol before driving off, this was a big hit with Number Two.

The helicopter landing pad and clearly defined parking spaces are also lovely touches which really add to childrens’ ability to play for an extended length of time with this lovely product. The toy cars and helicopter which come with the product mean that it ready for play straight out of the box.

Building the garage is a quick, simple process which takes less that five minutes.

Pieces click quickly into place. And the application of stickers is an easy process. Consequently for those with limited space dismantling the garage between times of play would be an easy process and would make storing it a breeze.

The road track is easy to slot into place and Number Two enjoyed changing its design.

As for the Cute Racers, they are both fun and inventive.

They are a great way of encouraging fun play for little ones and a creative conversation with slightly bigger ones.

From the mouse riding in a piece of cheese, to the dog in a bone and the monkey in a banana. These are definitely racing cars with a difference. Great fun for little boys and girls alike. These are sure to be adored in any house for many years.


We love how the animals fit easily inside, yet can be removed for creative play.

Number Two loves to change them around, giving them a chance to drive each other’s cars. Something that predictably drives Number One crazy. Which ensures that by bedtime everyone is back driving their own car!

In short Cute Racers are high quality affordable products, in a small package.

Perfect for stocking fillers at Christmas or as fun birthday gifts for friends’ children.

The quality of Viking Toys as a whole is something that really impressed me.

Sturdy, well thought out and definitely well tailored for the age 1-5 age group that they are designed for.

The school teacher in me, also loves that Viking Toys products are always dishwasher safe.

If I was looking for toys to use at work I know the ease of ensuring these are always clean would definitely sway my mind.
