My cats like this, my daughter loved it! She thought it was so funny to watch it zoom around the house. We have tile floors and it would go quite far, unless a cat was watching. It has held up well and still works after multiple pouncing and lots of head on collisions.
These mice are tiny but they pack a powerful punch. Ours have held up really well and they are just so adorable. What’s cuter than a tiny wooden mouse shooting across the floor? They wind up well and go really fast, even on carpet. My daughter chewed on the leather ear for a while but it’s no worse for the wear. The kids love playing with these. I might love them even more.
I bought two of these cars. One for my nephew and one for my daughter. They both love them. My daughter is 14 months and loves to watch it zip across the floor. My nephew is 5 and has even more fun by chasing it and trying to scare his little sister with it.
First the pros: cute, kids love it, speedy, fun to race, runs in a straight line, tucks away easily for a trip to a friend’s house.
Now the cons – well just one big one actually: after just a couple of runs the gearbox fell out of one of the two mice I’d bought. The culprit was a stripped screw that held the gearbox in place. I fixed it with some crazy glue but will be extra vigilant when my son plays with this toy.
I am a huge fan of Plan Toys, and this little guy is no exception! He’s adorable and super speedy! Great fun if you have hardwood or tile floors. His ears and tail appear to be made out of leather.
Did I mention we actually bought these for the cat’s stocking? We first bought the green one, and liked him so much we added the red to a later order. We plan to technically gift him to the cat, but figured our two daughters would fight over who gets to taunt kitty with this enticing little mouse on Christmas morning… and besides they’ll be great fun to race! These little mice really zoom, on carpet or hard wood, they’re speedy little creatures, and so doggone cute too!
Mousie is actually (minus the tail) 2.75" long, and 1.5 " at his widest point. It says he’s a choking hazard, but with minor supervision, I wouldn’t hesitate to gift this to a toddler. Mousie’s body is super-smooth, like all Plan Toys, and the wood grain shows through the water-based stain.
Like all the Plan Toys we own, this little guy is fantastic, and hands down worth the ‘extra money’. Highly recommended!
