Great Gizmos - Kid O Go Car - Review & Competition


I have always championed the statement "Let toys are toys!" I've never been one to think cars are for boys and dolls are for girls and in this day and age I don't think anyone should still think that way. In fact it probably annoys me more than it should when I hear people still saying "Oh, don't play with that! That's for boys!" Really? We are in 2015.

Ever since Noah was born he's had a wide array of different types of toys from stuffed animals, dolls, prams, trucks, blocks and so on. I've bought a little bit of everything for one reason and one reason only, to let my son play with whatever he wants to. I want him to develop his own preferences and tastes without any restriction or stigma.

As much as Noah likes to push his dolly around in a pram there is something that he loves even more and that's cars! He has on his own accord decided that cars are his absolute favourite thing in the entire world and I don't even think that's an exaggeration! I think he would choose cars over his Mummy any day, ha ha.

Noah is always on his feet, always running round, always up to something he shouldn't be and there isn't much that holds his attention longer than 5 minutes. Cars are pretty much the only exception and he will happily sit there for a good ten minutes pushing his little cars about on the rug. It's the only time I can probably drink a hot brew or nip to the toilet.



With is new found love of cars I was excited when I was asked if we would like to review the Kid O Go Car from Great Gizmo's. It has wheels, I knew he would love it! 




So what did we think? 


My initial thought was what a good looking car! It's a chunky little thing but is also really light. The handles fits perfectly into your toddlers hand which makes it easy for them to grab, carry, push and pull. It's designed to encourage gross motor skills whilst being very enjoyable too. 


What we like- 

Noah loves to hold it and spin the wheels round and round. He also likes to kiss it, as you can see in the photo above! It's a huge hit with him.

For me the overall design of the car is very cute. I love the style of the toys in the Kid O range and I need to buy more.

Although it's bigger than most of Noah's cars it's very light so I don't need to worry about him dropping it on his toes which usually happens a lot. 


The handle is the perfect size for Noah's hand which enables him to play a lot more efficiently.

At £11.95 it's very reasonably priced.
