Its obvious upside is the number of activities that it contains: there is a straight ramp, a spiral ramp, an elevator, a gas station, mechanic's bay and car wash. Toddlers will enjoy running the cars down the ramps and making the various sounds that the playset makes, e.g. pay phone ringing, gas station pumping, etc. Older kids will get into the imaginative play with the playset's different areas, such as towing a car to the garage and then having the mechanic work on it. There's not much educational value to tout here aside from the imaginative play for older kids.
It includes two cars (sports car and tow truck) and two figures (mechanic and assistant). Both of the cars are the standard Little People size and have the peg that fits Little People snugly in place, so they're compatible with the vast majority of other Little People products and vice versa.
The only downside to the Ramps Around Garage is that it takes up a sizeable amount of floorspace. It's hinged in the center, which allows you to reconfigure it for different ramp positions, but either way, it's still very big. Plus, there's no ability to fold it up for any travel or storage - taking it apart would be the only way to reduce its size. So, it incurs the risk that your child may like it so much that he or she will be disappointed when it can't be brought to Grandma and Grandpa's house.
The Ramps Around Garage is an excellent playset within a very strong line of children's toys.
It comes with a few cars and people but works just as well with matchbox cars.
It is pretty sturdy also as he was standing on it a few days ago.,
I am really glad Fisher-Price has finally come up with an updated design that is fun and sparks imagination, as well as not being too big. Previous versions have gigantic, and the one we bought secondhand before purchasing this one was not fun at all. It had ramps that went down like trapdoors, and nowhere else for the cars to go except the elevator and a lame little garage you could hardly fit your hand or car through. My son would watch the cars tumble down the funny ramps for a short while, and then lose interest.
This version of the Garage has so much for him to do! He loves "filling up" the car and tow truck at the gas station, stopping at the snack and magazine stand, going down the ramps, taking the car through the car wash, and pretending to "tow" the car to the repair shop to "fix" the car (the tow truck can really tow the car and unload it at the repair bay). The sounds are fun, too--the gas pump dings and "glugs" like the car is filling up, the cars can run over a button that makes car noises, the repair shop has realistic noises. The elevator is fun, too, although if my son isn't careful, his cars tend to slide out before it reaches the top. (I think that flaw needs to be remedied!) But he loves the toy, and my 5- and 8-year-old daughters will also play with the toy for a while. I think it's closer to the old favorite than any of the other versions I've seen. I recommend this toy for a good, imagination-sparking, classic purchase!
