The Police Car signals play loud and clear and attracts infants and toddlers time and again. The cute rounded shapes and the vibrant colours attract children's attetion, and the manipulative steering wheel, gear and yellow headlight spheres can be handled and turned again and again. The car has three compartments, two of which are relatively open to the front and rear. They both offer ample seating, and the rear also features two tinkering tables. The themes of traffic and cars are well-known to toddlers. They take a starting point in the toddlers’ near world and offer the scope of going into the wider world. Dramatic play scenarios such as visiting family are played out repeatedly in the Police Car. This is an important contribution to the development of language skills and literacy.
