We were super excited when the Babyhug Froggy Gyro Swing Car was delivered! The unboxing and unpacking happened immediately thereafter without any waste of time. We received the blue and yellow coloured car, which is a pleasant colour combination. All the components were neatly packed along with the instruction manual. However, I found it easier to assemble the car using a video available online. It took me around 30 to 45 minutes to put it all together. My little one just couldn’t sit still, and wanted to start driving it immediately!
The car can be used for 18 month old toddlers. Since it is the first time my daughter is riding such a car, I am currently a little cautious, and I am manoeuvering it myself. Once she gets used to it, and I develop confidence, I think I will let her drive on her own. My little one, on the other hand, has no such worries, and rushes to sit on it by herself! It feels good to watch her smile when the car moves.
She keeps both her feet on the designated yellow patch of foot mat, and holds the steering wheel with both hands. She does not like it when I stop pushing the car, and keeps insisting that I push her again. The two orange buttons, through which the nursery rhymes play and the light effects come on, fascinate her. She has quickly learned how to get the music on.
My husband and I were impressed with the car. It is an excellent “Play and Learn” tool for toddlers, to learn the art of balancing themselves while in motion. It also keeps their mind alert on how to start and stop the wheel movement, and helps improve eye, hand, and feet coordination.
The music and lights work once the battery is inserted, so you can easily decide if and when you would like to insert the battery. I liked the nursery rhymes that played through the car, since my little one listens to it and tries to mimic it.
If possible, the car should have, additionally, a back support or back rest, which would give more confidence to over-protective parents like me. I had read the note on FirstCry regarding the front wheels not touching the ground, and I am sure there would be a valid reason behind this. However, due to the same, I felt that while taking a turn, one has to be cautious.
Despite this, I definitely recommend purchasing the Babyhug Froggy Gyro Swing Car with Easy Steering Wheel for your toddler!
