The Grand Prix season has started and that means the level of car play activity will be ever increased in the months ahead. My son is as much of a petrol head as his mother. Now for Monkey, racing cars doesn’t need to be on race tracks, he’s more than happy to have a few road races. Well let’s face it, that’s the way Formula One has been going lately too. Monkey loves his Orchard Toys Giant Road set and when I spotted the new Junctions – Giant Road expansion pack at Toy Fair I knew it would be a winner.
The Junctions set comprises of 10 large puzzle pieces that can be combined with the Giant Road and Giant Town floor puzzle sets to extend play potential.
The pieces include 2 junction, 2 end pieces (always very important to my son), 4 bends as well as 4 characters with stands. My little road engineer was eager to fit the new junctions into his other sets and get the race started.
As with all Orchard Toys sets, the pieces are made from sturdy board, with colourful graphics to catch childrens’ attention and fire their imagination. The pieces provoke conversations and are great for working on observation skills. Aimed at children aged 3 years and over this Junctions – Giant Road Expansion Pack is a great addition to the range. Monkey loves his floor puzzle sets and this new set gives him even more possibilities as he works on different road layouts. It’s a big hit.
The Junctions – Giant Road Expansion Pack is available on the Orchard Toys website or from all good toy retailers for £7.50, and it really is a lovely add-on set.
