What is it
Control the traffic with a stop & go sign and 4-sided traffic lights, protect the road-workers with a road work triangle, and refuel the car with the petrol pump. The car includes a hole to fit the petrol nozzle in!
The set is compatible with Le Toy Van garages and car sets as well as standard train track sets.

What our experts think
The Le Toy Van petrol pump set is well made and engaging. The star of the set was the petrol pump – many of the children spent a long time filling up the van! It was lovely to see them engaging with the set and developing a storyline as they played. The children used their imaginations alongside real life experiences: many of them mimicked things they had seen their parents do. This helps children develop their understanding of the world, and also promotes language skills as children narrate and discuss their story. The set was good for encouraging collaborative play as there were plenty of pieces to share. We also like that the pieces were small and fiddly, which helps pre-schoolers improve their hand and finger strength and coordination – this is an important skill for learning to write.
