PRODUCT: WOW Toys Katie Camper’s Holiday Friends WOW Katie Camper's Holiday Friends (

DESCRIPTION: A pink plastic friction-powered camper van with detachable trailer. Includes two play figures, dog and dog basket, luggage, BBQ, picnic table, and tent. Suitable for children aged 18 months – 5 years.

GOOD POINTS: Katie Camper is a great little holiday home packed with many features and accessories to occupy any child, and is particularly appealing to girls. The van itself is a good chunky size and made from sturdy plastic. It is a friction-powered engine, which means it can be easily pushed forwards and backwards, and avoids the need for any batteries!

The van has been well thought out with a lot of colourful design and detail, and the whole of one side can be opened up to reveal a cosy furnished interior, with chequered floor and sculpted bed, sink, dressing table with mirror, and drawers. In addition, this opening side folds down to become a picnic garden, with an insert to place the picnic table and chairs.

The camper van has two other opening doors: the front of the van has a Perspex flip-up driver’s windshield, with a seat well inside to sit one of the play figures. The rear end also folds down at the press of a button (on the outside) to reveal a sculpted food hamper. On the outside of this rear opening is a magnetic hook onto which to attach the trailer. The van also comes which a removable tent which fits neatly on the top of the trailer, a BBQ, and a little dog and basket. Another nice feature is the colour-coordinated luggage included with the toy, and the luggage rack on the roof of the camper which acts as a shape-sorter.

The toy is excellent for promoting a child’s developmental skills on many levels. For a young child, the eye-catching colours, realistic engine sounds and flip-down features stimulate sight, sound, and touch, and develop motor skills. For an older child, the accompanying accessories and play figures (which even have designated names!) encourage plenty of discovery, creativity, and imagination through endless role-play and camping adventures.

The packaging is informative and has nice attention to detail, with background scenes to match the toy. In our opinion, this is a clever, educational toy with long-lasting entertainment value.

BAD POINTS: None, other than there are a lot of accessories with the toy which have the potential to be lost, although most of them fit nicely inside the van for storage.
