WOW Toys Countdown Calendar and Tow Truck Tim - Review & Giveaway

We've posted before about WOW Toys and was delighted when they asked if we would like to review their new Countdown Calendars. 
They've introduced the countdown calendars to help children count down to significant events coming up, like Holidays and Birthdays. There are four in the collection. The two as mentioned, one for starting Preschool and another for other Special Day. Aimed at young children, the calendars help them with time concept by counting down to their upcoming special day or event.

A brand new toy concept developed following on from focus groups WOW Toys held with parents. 


The calendars can be personalised and each numbered calendar window contains a surprise toy that can be played with from the first day. When collected over 10 days the toys create a themed play-set that can be played with long after their special day has passed.


We were sent the Holiday and Special Day countdown calendars.
The illustrations on each calendar reflect the theme and each one comes with a sheet that children can personalise with help from an adult. The doors are numbered exactly as an advent calendar would be.
We chose these two countdown calendars as we are going on a family holiday soon and little monkey starts school come September. For the purpose of this review we've opened the doors and pretended to count the days down to our events!
Here you can see the holiday character before sliding down the shoot to the bottom! What a cool idea!
The Special Occasion one is space themed and just as much fun.
We loved the toys that were behind each door! The monkeys think this is a great idea and I have to agree. Perfect for life events that kids are excited about or even those they are not! Something like this would be wonderful for such things like operations where children need to focus on something fun.
Great additions to the WOW Toys family!

We were also kindly sent this wonderful Tow Truck Tim Toy from the Town Range. Little monkey has been so excited playing with it.
Aimed at children aged 18 months to 5yrs old he loves it. As with all WOW Toys it requires no batteries and contains no PVC, offers life like scenarios and is robust and hard wearing. Both figures are interchangeable. It has:
Sound to aid development
Motor feature
13 functions & features
Mix and match trailer hook
5 piece set
The car comes off the back of the ramp and can be raised back onto it with the magnetic tow 'rope' by pushing the green and red buttons.
We've even had the monkeys 'fighting' over it!
I love how WOW Toys find real life scenarios and turn them into fabulous toys for children to use in role play and imaginative play.
I've no doubt this Tow Truck and the toys from the calendars will be played with here for sometime to come.
