15 Ways To Play With Toy Cars

Toy cars are an absolute must-have item to add to any kids toy collection. There are countless ways to play with these inexpensive little vehicles. The possibilities are truly endless. I sit and I watch Jaxon become completely occupied by lining up his cars and driving them on the weirdest of surfaces. His cars have driven down railings, across tablets, the tub during bath time, even across a sandwich.

Juicy loves the Car-Go Toy Car Playmat and Storage Bag by Superior Imagination. As a mama who obsesses over multi-functional products, I am here for it. The bag holds a large load of cars and functions as a great portable play surface. I appreciate the vibrant design that keeps Juicy entertained for at least a good hour. Boys are generally rough on toys so I love that the bag is durable and can go right into the washer.

This summer, we took the playmat bag combo on our Wisconsin Dells trip to keep him busy at the hotel. It worked like a charm. I can also see us taking Car-Go along to the beach and camping. The possibilities are endless. The Car-Go Toy Car Playmat and Storage Bag is one of our favorite play items hands down. I will definitely be recommending (and purchasing) these as birthday and Christmas gifts!

Older kid tip: As kids get older, one of the most fun things is to translate that early love of rolling cars across surfaces to playing racing games together! Games like Madalin Stunt Cars 2 keep the love of cars alive, and you can enjoy watching the once tiny toy cars rev their engines on the big screen.
