My little nephew is such a man when it comes to toys. Everything has to be cars, trains, or sports. It is amazing to see the difference between him and my toddler princess, who loves pink, dolls, and tutus. Not that my little girl is opposed to playing with “boyish” toys, but she prefers toys that you can dress up rather than take apart. When I had both toddlers over for a playdate, I pulled out the Fisher Price Little People Lil’ Fixer Ride On to see how the children would play with it. My nephew immediately took out the tool set and played a mini mechanic, while my toddler pulled out a doll and placed her on the ride on. Both children loved it, but played with it a little differently.
The Fisher Price Little People Lil’ Fixer Ride On comes with all your little mechanic needs to tinker with their truck: a ride on toy, tool box, hammer, wrench, screwdrivers, and saw. At first the toddlers argued over who was going to ride on it first and press the buttons that make fun sounds, and then after a while they figured out a good cooperative play where one would sit and the other would push. They taught each other how to use the tools and pretended to have a flat tire to fix.
I love that for only $40 you get a great play set that can keep kids entertained for a good amount of time. The sounds keep them interested and the tool box, which also stores well on the truck, is great to keep all the pieces together so you don’t lose them. You can find the Fisher Price Little People Lil’Fixer Ride on at Toys R Us. The recommended age for this toy is 1-3 years old, and both toddlers that reviewed this product are 2 1/2, so the age range is appropriate. It makes a great gift for a little boy, but my toddler had a great time playing with it as well!
