VTech Toot Toot Garage
My little boy loves this, whilst only 11 months old he likes pushing cars down the ramp and pushing the buttons but I'm sure it is something he will enjoy more and more as he gets older. You need to buy extra cars though as only comes with one. We are looking forward to buying him new tracks to add to it as he gets older.

Great fun for the first hour but Stifles imaginative play
My 2 year old son received this in addition to a fisher price garage for christmas (he's the first grandson on both sides and received an obscene number of gifts). At first this attracted his attention much more than the simpler garage; it makes lots of noise and has flashy lights after all.
However I think all the extra stuff vetch added on to this garage actually detracts quite significantly from it's use and after my son got bored of pressing the buttons over and over again he's been playing only with the simpler garage almost exclusively.
The cars can only drive through this garage in the designated route and everything you do sets off a series of songs or announcements (often one won't finish before the next begins) so it tends to distract my son from whatever imaginative game he was playing and he becomes much less absorbed in his games than he does with the simpler garage. Since the songs are just repetitive and largely irrelevant they can have very little educational value and largely serve the purpose of convincing parents that they're educational.
Another irritating point is that even the cars that come with the garage get stuck when you push them down the spiral path which is half the fun of having a garage.
All in all this garage is gimmicky, stifles imaginative play (which is very important for young children) and has limited entertainment value.

This looks really exciting and I am sure that my one year old grandson will love it. The motors make great sounds too. I have had VTech products before and they have stood the test of time. Here's to a Happy Christmas for our wee one!
