Four familiar friends invite preschoolers to explore this adorable garage.
Ideal for ages 18 months to 4 years, the Giggle N Go Garage is a playset with all your child's favorite characters, including Elmo and Oscar the Grouch. Featuring a car wash, pump station, and car elevator, this toy fosters imaginative play with fun phrases at every turn.
Setup and Design
With bright colors and popular Sesame Street characters, this adorable playset puts a smile on any child's face. All the pieces snap right into place and the instructions are clearly written so parents can get it up and running in no time. Once the garage is built, kids put the cars on the elevator platform and pull Oscar's head up. When the elevator reaches the top, the platform should tip forward, sending the cars down the ramp. However, instead of in one smooth motion, the Elmo and Cookie Monster cars require a push or two to get past the first curve. Another slight drawback parents should note is that the frame must be handled gently and might not stand up against rough toddler play.
Not only does this garage have all of the usual features enjoyed by young racers, it also incorporates some of Sesame Street's most beloved characters. With googly eyes and wide grins, the cars are miniature versions of Elmo and Cookie Monster. Boys and girls can race their cars down the Cookie speedway ramp or the Ernie car wash ramp, then gas up at the pump station. And the hose really fits the gas tank! Fun phrases accompany all the action and generate giggles from the youngsters. For quiet play, parents can shut the playset off with the on-off switch on the side.
The Test Drive
Overall the Giggle N Go is a great toy for little kids, but some basic design elements could be improved. For instance, the cars are too wide and instead of rolling right down the ramp, they need a push to get past the first curve. The cars also sometimes prematurely roll off the elevator platform. But once you hear Elmo say, "Time for an oil change," in his sing-song voice, you will forget about this playset's few weaknesses. It reaches its target age and engages kids for hours as they race cars down the ramps again and again. The Giggle N Go Garage measures 7-3/4 by 19 by 9-1/4 inches and requires three AA batteries.

I am so glad we got it! My son is 18 months and LOVES ELMO!
One thing I made sure to do after reading reviews and REALLY snap the pieces together firmly. There are a couple of pieces of mine that dont attach firmly but they cause no issues. One is the little Green ramp that goes under the the big ramp. And the 2 legs for the big ramps. Personanly I think my son loves pulling them off and it takes 2 seconds to pop them back on. They do not affect the intended fun of the toy for a child IMO.
Our cars have worked perfectly from the begining. Definatley gets 2 thumbs up from our little Elmo fan. He will sit play with this for quite a good span for an 18 month old boy.
Edited to add: Almost a year later and STILL going strong, working well and played with a lot!
I had read on one of the reviews to go back and make sure you really push everything in place well, and I did that when I bought it. A couple of places did another "pop" after I thought I had it together and it made is so much studier. My son Constantly takes off the tracks (he likes to throw them inthe sink saying they are dirty?!) and it has not hurt the toy at all, nor does it make it unplayable.
This toy is a piece of junk. Aside from agreeing with the other reviewers who say it falls apart and is basically useless as a "garage", our particular toy came out of the box already broken. It doesn't make any sound. Unfortunately the receipt is long gone and I cannot return it to the store. Such a disappointment for my boys, too, because they were so excited by the picture on the box. But I absolutely refuse to spend money on a replacement.
If you're like me and feel the urge to buy this toy despite the bad reviews, do your homework and find the lowest possible price first. I would say that spending more than [...] on this is a total waste of your hard earned dollars.
My boys still play with the little cars, and my two year old gets a kick out of lifting the elevator, but I regret sinking money into something I was warned about.
