WOW Toys: Ernie the Fire Engine- A Review

 WOW Toys

We recently received Ernie the Fire Engine from Wow Toys to review. Weston has trialed this toy rather intensely and given it a two thumbs up rating. As a Mother (and Mrs. Mommy Product Blogger herself haha) I too  have given it my seal of approval.  So lets talk! Let me tell you the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.

WHO are these toys for?

These toys are designed for children ages 18 months to 5 years of age. Don't let this age range detour you though, little man (who just turned one) was definitely able to appreciate Ernie the Fire Engine.   I will say that he uses Ernie in a basic way. He loves the sounds of the engine reving and is just learning how to, "gear it up" and get it going. The finer features of the toy such as the windshield that moves, the crank-able ladder, the storage area for the barricade, are not yet on his radar. "Wow" toys can be used on a basic motor level or for more advanced role and interactive play. These are toys that will grow with your child and last through some seriously rough and tumble play. 

WHAT is special about them?

Wow toys are made with very high standards. They contain no plastic PVC's and are tested to exceed all current standards.

These toys are made to be durable and long lasting.

There are no small parts (This is great with my one year old little chewer)

These toys don't require batteries (Halllleeeeelujah)

WHEN should you buy your child one of these toys?

I think you should buy your child a Wow toy now! They help with social development, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving, and using imagination. 

WHERE can you buy these toys?

You can find these toys at a variety of stores online and around the world. 

WHY was this company created?

WOW Toys slogan is, "Toys that don't break their promises." Nadim Ednan-Laperouse, is a medical doctor, with a passion for toys. His mission and the reason for the creation of this company was to manufacture toys that would be reliable and long lasting yet not dependent upon batteries. 

Just a gratuitous cute kid shot. 

HOW much are these toys?

So how much will one of these puppies run you? Ernie the Fire Engine retails for $29.99.  This may be a little more pricey than a plastic toy by another brand, however, I think the promise of durability and not needing batteries make up for this price. 

Ernie the Fire Engine sounds pretty cool doesn't he? Visit my blog again on November 15th to enter to win  your very own Ernie the Fire Engine. I am excited because this giveaway will be open world wide!

  1. We LOVE the WOW brand. We have Dudley the dump truck and T is getting 2 more for Christmas!

    1. I had actually never heard of them prior to doing this review. Pretty cool stuff I must say. I'm impressed by them.

  2. This has all the bells and whistle for a little fire engine! I like toys that don't run on batteries.. the boys will love them.
    Will be back later!

    1. Toys that dont run on batteries just seem like less work for me! Love it.

  3. I was just trying to work on what we are getting Andrew for Christmas and now I'm intrigued by this and want to get one for him. He loves any and all trucks (or anything with wheels, actually) LOL

    1. He really might love some WOW toys then. Weston loves the little engine noise it makes as it moves. Check it out.

  4. Everytime my little guy sees me look at this he gets all excited.

  5. I love sesame street products and this on e looks like a fun one
