Review/Giveaway: Chicco Talking Vacation Car - CLOSED

Recently the folks at Chicco contacted me about giving away a Chicco Talking Vacation Car. I had my 1 year old nephew in mind for this product, but have been surprised to find that my 3.5 year old daughter has spent a lot of time playing with this toy!

According to Chicco the Chicco Talking Vacation Car:

* Helps your child develop language skills in both English and Spanish

* Has 3 play modes to discover new words, complete stories, and solve riddles

* Develops children’s imagination, creativity, and coordination

I have found the car itself to be made well. It is sturdy and both the wheels and headlights work. The only complaint that I have with this product is with the mini suitcase/picture book (which accompanies the stories). It has fallen apart a couple of times now, however it does snap back together.

As I mentioned, my 3.5 year old loves this toy...especially the story feature. I probably wouldn't buy it for a child her age - only because I'm not sure how much longer she will like it, however, I think this toy would be perfect for kids 18 months-2.5 years, and that it would make a great gift for someone! An added benefit is that kids over 2.5 are probably going to like it too. :-)

The folks at Chicco have kindly agreed to give a Chicco Talking Vacation Car to one of my lucky readers!

What am I giving away?

1 winner will receive a Chicco Talking Vacation Car.
