Product Review: Little People City Skyway

I am a BzzAgent, which means I often get the opportunity to try some really great products, totally free. BzzAgent introduced me to my favorite brand of razor, which is still the only razor I use.

Recently, I got the opportunity to snag a pretty amazing toy for my son. It's the Little People City Skyway. We're big fans of the Little People line of racers and tracks, so while I was pretty sure he'd really enjoy this, I have to say that this track goes beyond our expectations.

The City Skyway has multiple tracks, and the cars go in different directions each time. It also stands just about as high as Austin, as you'll see in the photos below. What toddler doesn't want a car track as tall as he is?

It's obvious the track was a big hit, but I thought I'd share a few photos of us putting it together, and my thoughts in general.

Us revealing Austin's new toy to him:

He immediately went to work helping daddy take the pieces out of the box. Of course he spotted the two cars that come with the track and brought them over to me to open them.

What was nice is that the tracks are different colors in different sections, so as Brad was putting the track together, he'd just have Austin bring him X colored track. That was great, because Austin felt like he really was helping put it together. 

As has been our experience with the Little People products, the instructions to put the track together were very clear, and the plastic pieces are of a really nice quality, so the pieces fit together like they're supposed to. There's nothing more frustrating than when you have a molded plastic toy and the plastic has warped and the pieces just don't fit snugly. That's not the case with this track, (or any of the Little People toys that we have).

One thing I did notice about this particular track vs. the others we have, is that this one has "holes" in the middle of each road piece. I believe this is done to reduce the amount of material in the toy. Typically I've found toys that do this not to be as sturdy, but whatever Fisher Price has done to reduce the plastic has not impacted the integrity of the track. They're just as sturdy and well made as all of the other solid Little People tracks we have.

Austin didn't waste any time sending the cars that came with the track down the road, watching them switch directions to different tracks. Then he went to his playroom and grabbed all his other Little People racers and spent pretty much the rest of the afternoon playing with his track. 

If you follow me on Instragram you might have seen my hyperlapse video of him using his track. If not, click the link to check it out and see the track in action.

If you're looking for a really fun track set for a toddler (probably around age 3 to 4, strictly based on the height of the track), the Little People City Skyway is awesome, and reasonably priced for the size. If you're little one is on the shorter side, try out some of the other Little People tracks. We have found the smaller ones are perfect to take with us to a hotel for the weekend for something to play with.

Disclosure: As noted above, I am a BzzAgent, and I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
