Little People Wheelies Loops ‘n’ Swoops Amusement Park Review + Give Away

The winner was:

deanna – Little People toys are perfect for the little hands of the little people who use them.I find that my 2 & 4 year old girls love playing cars with their four older brothers. Their two older teenage sisters just don’t get little people at the moment. As I have a son who has Sensory Processing Disorder toys that allow fine and gross motor skills and self development through imaginary play are a vital part of the way we play. I found that these toys in the past have been able to stand up to the rough and tumbled play of more than one child.Durable, long lasting and a favorite that stands the test of time in my house. Well done FP for developing these toys for our children. xx

We love the Little People toys in our house and have a sizeable collection. I love how you can easily add to the collection, adding sets that suit the varying interests of the children. The kids set up all sorts of settings and have great sessions of imaginary play.

As such we were delighted to be given a Fisher Price Little People Wheelies Loops ‘n’ Swoops Amusement Park to take through its paces. Our preschooler is still very into cars, so it was always going to be a hit with him.

Little People Wheelies Loops ‘n’ Swoops Amusement Park Review
Loops ‘n’ Swoops is aimed at kids aged from 1½ – 5 years, perfect for our preschooler. You need to assemble the amusement park yourself, but as you can see it is pretty simple and the preschooler enjoyed putting it together with me. It would have taken with his “help” about 15 minutes to put together. However, I would recommend if you are going to give this as a gift for Christmas morning, put it together yourself before you hand it over.

The ‘Loops ‘n’ Swoops’ Amusement Park is over 60cms tall and includes two different ramps. One ramp twists and turns its way down the structure and when it reaches the end it sets off the sound effects. It uses 3 AA batteries for the sound effects, but that is all they are needed for. So at least if the batteries go flat the children can still play with and use the toy!

Our littlest one loved the steep ramp the best. You place the car at the top of the ramp, press the button (nice large size for little hands) to release it and then it scoots down the ramp, does a 360 loop and then shoots of the end. You can vary the angle of the exit ramp after the loop and the pre-schooler spent quite a bit of time seeing what difference the angles made to where the car landed.

It was gorgeous watching the joy on his face when he was playing with the Loops ‘n’ Swoops. The little video below gives you a snapshot of the fun he has had playing with the ‘Loops ‘n’ Swoops’ Amusement Park. {If you are reading this via email you may need to click through here to see the video.}

While the toy has a defined way of working, kids always like to investigate and try out there own ideas and Loops ‘n’ Swoops provides plenty of opportunity for that. As you can see the preschooler reversed the way the cars went. I love the look of concentration on his face!

The size of the cars that venture on the ramp are perfect for little hands, allowing them to manoeuvre them around he amusement park with ease and fun.
