We tested out the How Wheels Wall Tracks with one of our favorite 5 year old boys. We used the “Starter Set”, but there are other sets too which can be combined together to create an even longer race track.
Setup and installing the track to the wall was easy and “parent friendly”. The track comes with 3M Command stickers that are used to tape the track to the wall. That means no holes or drilling and it will be easy to take the track down later. The track has brackets that get stuck to the wall and then the track pieces stick into the brackets. This means that even if kids play rough with the track, the track just pops out from the bracket (no wall damage and easy to just pop the track back into the bracket which is still secure on the wall).
This track has a high fun factor. There are multiple diverters that can be adjusted to make the race car take a different path.
Here’s a video of our 5 year old playing with this track.
The Melissa & Doug Wooden Pound-a-Peg toy is a great classic toy. This hammer toy with pounding bench is perfect for toddlers. It’s low tech and high in fun for young kids. Simply hammer the pegs and when all have been hammered down, flip it over and starting hammering all over again. This toy is great for developing eye hand coordination and some basic motor skills
Our boys have spent more time playing with this toy than our girl, but she still loves to hammer also. Right now, our 1 year old boy is in love with this toy and just hammers all the time. You can’t go wrong with this classic toy for toddlers.
I would never have bought this toy, I received it as a gift last Christmas and surprisingly, it’s a really fun kids toy.
The box reads, “charge, toss and take aim at the Indoor/Outdoor Duck Hunting game”. I was only brave enough to try this outside, but if you have really high ceilings in a very large room with nothing break-able, then why not give it a try inside? (This is going to remain an outdoor only toy at our house). The duck does have 2 distance settings so that you can have it go on short flights in circles for indoor use and longer distance flights for outdoor use.
This toy is rated for kids 10 years old and up, but it can be fun for younger kids too. The duck does need to be charged and launched carefully, so you will need an older child or grown up do the setup and launch the duck, but that doesn’t mean that kids as young as 4 years old could enjoy the “shooting” aspect of the game.
When I play with my 4 year old boy, I always charge the duck and then launch it into the air for him and then let him shoot at the duck. He does really well with it and thinks it’s really fun. The duck has to be hit 3 times before he comes down. Each time he’s hit, the duck stops flapping his wings momentarily and dips in flight a bit to show that he’s been hit. After that third hit, the duck glides down to the ground. Then it’s time to charge him up (about 10 seconds) and he’s ready to fly again.
If you are looking for a unique outdoor toy, then you may want to “give this one a shot”.

The CS-6 Toy Nerf gun is a unique blaster in the line of Nerf guns. This blaster actually can convert into a flashlight. This won’t let you down if your “Nerf battles” take you outside after dark or in case your opponent turns out the lights in the basement. Once you’ve found the “target” with the flashlight mode, the CS-6 quickly converts back into a blaster to get the job done.
Suggested for kids 6 years old and up, this toy Nerf gun comes with a carry strap, quick re-load clip and 6 Nerf darts.
