Car Go Cargo

Car Go Cargo

Fall 2011 Toys
Ages: 1 - 4 yrs.
Manufacturer: B. Toys (by Battat)
Price: $24.99

The Car Go Cargo is fun, funky, and well-designed for imaginative play. Its design is suggestive of vehicles but allows the user to be more free form in play than more traditional car toys. The "truck" case has wheels, a large storage area and an easy grip handle for carrying or pushing around the room. My son found the latter to be the most fun. He zoomed the case around the room like a rocket ship. Inside are four "vehicles" with wheels and wing shaped sides. It wasn't until reading through the packaging that I realized the insides of the case form a figure eight race track. It's slightly awkward to use, but it is yet another great form-meets-function element of this toy.

Like other toys in this line, the Car Go Cargo is BPA and phthalate free. They keep the extraneous packaging to a minimum and use recycled paper for the necessary labeling.
