Who would love this: Kids that love playing with cars & vehicles (especially unique, rare to find Aussie vehicles!)
Hands up 🤚 if your kids own at least one of the following: a mini double-decker London bus, a NYPD-styled match-box police car, or a black hackney carriage / taxi cab (I think we have all three in this house 🤣). What I LOVE most about Make Me Iconic is how it always brings “real Aussie stuffs” into the world of toys. Thank you for providing this “Australian Vehicles” set to me for a review. I can’t describe how excited we are to finally own some truly Aussie-styled moveable vehicles with wheels!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Uniquely Aussie Vehicles - This set includes 5 vehicles and each of them is Aussie in every ways! The words “Australian Fire & Rescue” are painted on both sides of the red fire truck, instantly setting it apart from the British or American one. There is an Aussie-invented two-door Ute in stunning orange, with cargo tray integrated with the front passenger body, all in one-piece. The police car is the standard blue and white, completes with blue and red siren lights at the top. There is the green Holden Sandman Panel Van with an Aussie-flag surf-board painted at the top, and the bright red post van specially-designed to deliver “Aussie Mail”. The vehicles are iconic, authentically Aussie, just like what we see on the street!
(2) Small Lovely Details - I love how Make Me Iconic sprinkles a little sense of humour on the registration plates of each vehicles- it’s “HELP” for the fire truck, “SURFS UP” for the Holden Sandman, “U.BUTE” for the Ute, “POSTIE” for the post van; and my personal favourite, “Call 000” for the police car (how refreshing to finally see an Aussie emergency call number rather than the usual 999 or 911!)
(3) Wooden Materials - I love the great quality wooden materials, the wheels, the non-toxic paints, and its compliance with Australian toy standards. These are sturdy toys that will last for generations! I also love the organised storage box with cardboard inserts for each vehicle.
We are loving it, Make Me Iconic !
