Mookie Whirlee Ride-On

Mookie Whirlee ride-on

Price: £16.99

Available from:  Amazon, ELC and other retailers

Suitable from: 12 months – 4 years

Initial Reaction:  I could not believe how light the delivery box was – it felt empty. On unpacking the parcel I encountered a lovely blue plastic ride on with aeroplanes along the side, with wheels that turned 360° and a handle at the front to hold onto.  My son instantly knew what to do with it but insisted on sitting on it backwards.  It is light enough for him to pick up and carry about, something that he preferred doing to riding it.  The problem was that he had recently been given another ride-on to look at and he preferred the one with steering.  I was a little disappointed in his lack of interest in it because to me it looked a great toy so I gave it to his little friend Eva instead.

She absolutely loves it, took t it straight away and takes it everywhere, she spins round and round and loves how it fits into all the tight spots and swirls in every direction.  She walks around pulling it a lot too and her Mum loves how she has learnt how to co-ordinate her legs to make it properly work.

Pros: It’s ultra lightweight, so you or your child can carry it with ease.  It spins all the way around and is small and tidy in its design so is ideal if you don’t have much space in your house.  It’s stackable, so if you have lots of children they can be stacked away neatly.

Cons:  It’s not really and off-roader.

Value for money? Definitely.

Overall Reaction: A great compact and lightweight fun toy.
