WOW Toys Tow Truck Timmy Review


Leo and I are big fans of WOW Toys, what's not to love about a toy that doesn't require batteries and offers endless hours of fun!? Each Birthday and Christmas we find ourselves in-undated with toys that require batteries and we always wonder why we inflict such a hard ship on ourselves. But we don't need to silent curse ourselves, we just need to research our purchases and  turn our thoughts to WOW Toys. WOW Toys will put a smile on your little ones face, and your own to.

There is a fantastic selection to behold on the WOW website, and over recent months Leo has been trying one out for himself. Tow Truck Timmy is a toy like no other that Leo owns, yes like the majority of his toys it is vehicle orientated and absolutely it has wheels... But Tow truck Timmy can actually hoist cars up onto his truck and cart them off after they have had an unfortunate day on the roads. It is Timmy's job to pick up Rolling Ray. Rumor has it he is always getting himself into some kind of situation when it comes to his car, so it keeps Timmy in the money!


In the box you will get Timmy's Tow Truck and of course Ray's car along with the hero Timmy and Rolling Ray themselves. There is so much that you can do with this set, and the scenarios can change for each new game that you choose to play. In fact if you have more than one WOW Toy like Leo does, you can even include them in the game.

Tow Truck Timmy's Truck is fully equipped for a rescue operation, luckily for Rolling Ray. There is an extendable green magnet that you can pull out to pull Rolling Ray onto the rescue truck. You simply pull the green cord out far enough to attach it the magnet to the back of the car, this is the bit that Leo always likes to have a bit of help with. Once Rolling Ray’s car is attached Leo excitedly presses the Green button to roll Ray onto the vehicle.

You can then pull the back door up to keep Rolling Ray from any more unfortunate car dilemmas (for today anyway…) and you can whizz him off to the repair centre for whatever repairs he may need. What you will notice as you whizz Ray away on the tow truck is the rather super car noise that it makes. The first time we had a play with Ray we were at Granny’s and even she commented on how realistic this sound was!

This is the part about WOW Toys that always pleases me, it can do all of this with NO batteries!


A side from everything this toy can do without batteries I have to mention just how well made it is. The tow truck and the car are solid and easy to manoeuvre, the plastic isn’t about to snap through excited toddler play (We have tried and tested this).

This play set offers more imaginative play opportunities than you can wave a stick at, and this is one of many other reasons that I am a big fan. Because they don’t run on batteries it means you will never have to worry about not being able to replace them. It means that every noise and every game is fuelled completely on the imagination of the child playing, and after all… That is what play time is all about.

You might look at the price and think that they are priced a little higher than you may first anticipate, but then if you take the quality into consideration and then ponder buying a cheaper alternative that will only last 5 minutes… I think you will see where I am coming from.

I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for, and for the quality that I have always experienced with WOW Toys this is apparent. Leo plays bumper cars where they crash into one another (Boy thing!?) and he just enjoys a proper playtime.


You can buy WOW Toys from a number of online retailers and if you know where to look you can find them in the shops. We actually have a local garden centre who stock WOW and Leo and I like to have a look at what they have in from time to time.

Tow Truck Timmy retails at around £20.00 and there is such a wide selection of different toys and scenarios to play out for both boys and girls on the WOW website!

So if you want to break the mold and steer away from battery operated toys… Check WOW out and see what you think your little one would most enjoy.
