We are very close to a beach in Dorset so we decided to take the toy to try it out on sand, we found this suited the tracks much better and the child became much more interested which makes perfect sense really!
We would recommend this toy for ages 3-8 for use in the garden, playing with sand or dirt and even to take to the beach for a change from the traditional bucket and spade. We tested this toy on both a girl and boy, both children like to play with cars and other vehicles. In this case the girl lost interest very quickly but the boy played happily for several hours.
