Zoooom!  These four squeezable Pull-Back Vehicles roll quickly across the floor, after being pulled back gently and released. Special “rev-up” wheels make it easy for babies and toddlers to send each vehicle speeding away, delighting inquisitive children and inviting them to reach, crawl or even walk after each rolling toy. What an exciting way to encourage coordination and muscle development! Ages 9+ Months
