The Perfect Gift for any boy under 5 (and quite a few girls too)...
Wheelies are basic board books, with 1 - 5 word descriptions of pictures of tractors, motorcycles, or sports cars....with wheels. So if your sweet little one is not quite into books yet, they will see it as a toy car. If your sweet little one does like books, then they get a book and a toy in one.
Around 6 months of age Oscar developed a fascination with wheels; he would try to eat the ones on the stroller, which was a little gross. So he really liked the Wheelie book I got him on diggers. He didn't know what a digger was, but he would sit through me turning a page or two, and then he would play with the wheels. Now at 14 months he wants me to read to book, and still plays with it as a toy - wheeling it across the room.
As with most toys, there is a possibility that a Wheelie's wheels could come off, and if that happened parts could be a choking hazard. So don't let a child younger than three play with a Wheelie, without supervision. That said, I have not yet seen a Wheelie disintegrate, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.
Until my next post, all Wheelies at the bookstore are 20% off. Have a great weekend!
