Load, raise, and haul four new vehicles along an imaginary highway with the Car Carrier from Melissa & Doug.

Hit the Road with Sturdy Wooden Construction

The Car Carrier is made with an eye for sturdy, dependable detail that allows your child to play for hours without interruption. The long ramp folds easily along its hinges, which encourages and facilitates your child's exploration with the way certain hinges and constructions may move to create new formations. This design encourages imaginative play while simultaneously promoting coordination and the development of fine motor skills.

When its ramp is unfolded, the Car Carrier measures 5-3/4 by 12 by 3 inches (H x W x D). At this size, the toy is small enough for young hands to grab and push or pull along, but large enough to necessitate full-body movement if the child wants to move the Car Carrier along wandering paths.

Experience Different Terrains

Though the Car Carrier works fine on all terrains, our testers found that the smooth, plastic wheels turned most easily on surfaces that create some friction, like carpet or short grass. In addition, the individual cars can, of course, continue on their own journeys separate from the car carrier itself. Cars are also designed specifically to fit with wooden train sets, allowing for speedy play along racetracks and with other vehicles.

    We recently gave this to a friend’s little boy for his 2nd birthday – he and all the other boys at the party played with it constantly! It says ages 3+ on the package, but the only small parts are the wheels, which seem well-attached. My 3 year old son liked the toy too, but the 2 year old boys spent far more time playing with it. The top rack slides down so the cars can all drive off the car carrier. I was impressed at how well-made the toy is and I came on today to buy another one to put away as a Christmas gift for my 1.5 year old.

    Blue Car Tested Positive for Lead Paint, November 4, 2011

    I bought this for my 2-year old son who LOVES playing with it, but I don’t let him use the blue car after it tested positive for lead paint.

    Here is the background: A local non-profit was having a free toy testing event for lead. I brought in some older toys and, on a whim, I grabbed all the cars associated with this product. I was shocked to find out that the blue car tested positive for lead (63 ppm using a x-ray fluorescence machine). I called the 800 number for “Melissa and Doug.” They assured me that all their products meet or exceed current regulations and that they do consistent testing for all their paints. They also said that they test using a “leachability” test which is a more accurate test than the x-ray fluorescence. They said they would send me the test results of that particular paint batch so I could review the results, but I was never sent anything. In the end, I am really dissappointed that a company promoting safe, non-toxic toys would allow any lead in their paint at all – and now I am reluctant to buy anything from this company again.

    My grandsons love this toy – one is 3 years and the other is 2. I’m ordering another so they don’t have to share. They love moving the carrier rack up and down and driving the cars off. They ‘drive’ the truck off around the furniture legs and come back for the cars to load them back up. This toy encourages language development as we talk about where the truck is going and where the cars will be parked, what color car should go where, etc. Great for imaginative play.
