Helicopter Push Toy

Fall 2011 Toys
Ages: 1 & Up
Manufacturer: PlanToys, Inc.
Price: $35.00

This is a simple, elegantly designed toy for on-the-go kids. The Helicopter Push Toy by Plan Toys is a beautifully made classic wooden push toy. It's a welcome addition to an all too plastic world of toys. The helicopter rotor blades clack along as it is pushed. As a kid who gets excited to see traffic report helicopters flying overhead every day, my son loved pretending to fly this wooden version.

The packaging says the toy helps teach gross motor skills, coordination, and logic. I can see these things in action as he motors it around the floor. It would make a great gift for a child who has just mastered walking.
