12 We Love: Wooden Racing Carsby Suzanne Milne on 08/11/2015
Racing cars are a playtime perennial for kids. And with the designer models coming off ‘production lines’ these days, even big people will want to get their licence to play!
Not only can cars be a vehicle for your child’s imagination (see what I did there?), they can also be a lesson in:
- physics – does the car accelerate faster on a flat or sloping surface?
- engineering – what happens if a wheel comes off?
- safety – how can I avoid a crash?, and
- problem solving – can I make my car go faster than my friend’s?
If your child loves cars, this list is specifically wooden racing cars, but we’ve also covered Emergency Vehicles, Baby Cars, Non-wooden Cars and Ride-on Cars too.
