Car fun with Carousel Toys

*We received these items from Carousel Toys for the purpose of this review.

Since becoming parents, we have probably bought close to a gazillion toys, but inevitably the boys always seem to play with the same types of toys over and over again.

We’re talking about anything to do with transport. Things like trains, cars, fire engines, aeroplanes, that kind of thing. They were recently sent a couple of items from Carousel Toys. We’ve been big fans of them in the past. In fact, one of E’s first toys was a musical light-up drum, so I knew they would go down well.

If you’ve not heard of Carousel Toys before, they are a brand exclusive to Tesco and offer a range of toys suitable for babies up to age 8.

Police Breakout Set

The Police Breakout Set is a large Police truck that comes with three cars and a helicopter. The set has a prison cell, a working wind-up lift, and sound effects.



The set is a really good size and easily has enough space for two to play together. The boys have spent hours creating their own police chase scenarios. There’s plenty of room to add additional cars too.



It can be annoying to receive a toy without batteries, so you’ll be pleased to hear that the Police Breakout Set comes equipped with 3 AAA batteries.

The whole set can easily be packed into the truck when not in use for safe storage too.

Mega Transporter

Alongside the Police Breakout Set, we were also sent the Mega Transporter. This is a must-have for any car-mad children out there. The boys bought something similar before, but with all the cars they own, it ran out of space pretty fast. This Mega Transporter comes with a whopping 14 cars and accessories. In addition to this, it has space to hold a whopping 40 cars!


The Transporter itself has wheels on so you can push it around easily. It also has a handy carry handle at the top.


I love the transporter can store so many cars. It saves them from being strewn all over the floor and keeps them tidy in one place.

Both the Police Breakout Set and the Mega Transporter are easily packed away and can be taken wherever you go. The boys have found it handy to bring these with them easily when visiting our in-laws.

Carousel Toys are available in most Tesco stores and convenient to pick up during your weekly shop. You can also shop online too.

    My son would love these toys, particularly the police one as he had a police man come into preschool the other week and talk to them about his job. He’s been into them ever since! #KCACOLS

  5. This looks fab. My girls would LOVE something like this. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time

  6. My third Grandson would love that he adores playing with his cars and in his opinion he can never have too many.

  7. The police station would be so loved by my little George! It’s got everything he loves about a toy. We have a car storage lorry but it’s crap compared to this. All the cars go in roof outwards and they all fall out when it’s picked up.


  8. Oooh, I think my son would love that transporter. I’ll have to add it to my wishlist – and it’s his birthday soon too. #KCACOLS

  9. Great toys, would of been good for my two when they were smaller.
