Load, raise, and haul four new vehicles along an imaginary highway with the Car Carrier from Melissa & Doug. This quality, all-wood truck makes it easy to load four brightly colored cars onto a long ramp that folds into a two-level carrier, allowing your child to deliver the vehicles wherever they may need to go!
"Easy-load and lower" ramps provide two levels for the new vehicles. View larger
Hit the Road with Sturdy Wooden Construction
The Car Carrier is made with an eye for sturdy, dependable detail that allows your child to play for hours without interruption. The long ramp folds easily along its hinges, which encourages and facilitates your child's exploration with the way certain hinges and constructions may move to create new formations. This design encourages imaginative play while simultaneously promoting coordination and the development of fine motor skills.
When its ramp is unfolded, the Car Carrier measures 5-3/4 by 12 by 3 inches (H x W x D). At this size, the toy is small enough for young hands to grab and push or pull along, but large enough to necessitate full-body movement if the child wants to move the Car Carrier along wandering paths.
Experience Different Terrains
Though the Car Carrier works fine on all terrains, our testers found that the smooth, plastic wheels turned most easily on surfaces that create some friction, like carpet or short grass. In addition, the individual cars can, of course, continue on their own journeys separate from the car carrier itself. Cars are also designed specifically to fit with wooden train sets, allowing for speedy play along racetracks and with other vehicles.
