You don't need much for your toddler. A row of cars zooming off a race track is actually enough.

They can't yet come up with a game where the cars have to go through the car wash, or where they have to be parked properly.

It's nice for your toddler that something moves. That's why this one wooden garage of Top Bright also so much fun, because there is always something to look at.

What is the Top Bright Racecourse?

A classic, actually a marble track with some parking spaces on top, but my little one had a lot of fun with it.

There are 4 cars that are also made of sturdy wood. The construction of the track is made of wood, the tracks and top are made of plastic.

The track has 4 floors, each with its own color.

What makes the Top Bright Racetrack so much fun?

Of course it's great to see the cars go down. With really small children you can do it so that they can watch it.

Then they can of course do it themselves so that their motor skills allow it.

And as soon as they get older, the supplied cars are a nice small size to participate in many fantasy games.

At least that was the case with us. Also, the racetrack often joined other pretend play and was often at the start of other road sections we had.

The job cannot be broken. That is what sets it apart from other such small racetracks in particular.

Cons

Due to the construction, cars often get stuck. This can be the challenge of the game to practice their fine motor skills, but it also led to frustration for us.

If you put them through the track too quickly in succession, they often get stuck.

Sometimes putting it away for a while and then trying again helps. It has been thrown around a few times, but it still holds up well.

Elevations on the road with pegs. This makes pressed some pins under the car and the car says a certain sentence that belongs to that spot on the garagesuch as the car wash.

A good alternative for slightly older children is the Vtech Toet Toet Auto's Garage (reviewed here).

A completely different approach of course, but also fun with cars that you can park on top of the garage.

With this set they hold the attention with sound and different activities and the age category overlaps nicely. When your child may have already grown out of the Top Bright, this is a good set.

Conclusion

Top Bright has a lot of cheap toys marketed with a combination of sturdy wood and plastic. This race track is just such an example.
