Try to think back. You are just two or three years old. It’s Christmas morning and you find this metal car by Vilac under the tree and realize it’s yours.
What would that experience have been like?
What would you have thought? How would you have felt?
How wonderful and amazing would it have been in your life to have been given a gift like this car in your early, formative years?
Enter the Age of Wonder with Us
To us this Vilac car helps form what we call the Age of Wonder for kids at Shopping Lilly.
We are not out here looking for some branded movie or TV toy crap for toddlers aged 1-3 years old – we are spending our time searching for products that will inspire wonder and amazement and engagement and joy.
Before the digital world begins to creep into their lives, as inevitably it will, we want our children – and yours – to have the experience of toys that will want to play with. Not toys they are influenced to want by cynical buy savvy marketeers.
Amazing things to come
We’re looking for toys that will engage their young formative minds with amazing things from around the world exposing them to the different and the beautiful and the wonderful.
This metal Vilac car is a good place to start with your toddler.
A sturdy little race car of heirloom quality
Powered by their little legs, the wheels roll, the steering wheel turns the front wheels building coordination and motor skills. Rugged yet beautiful, the vehicle will endure hours of playtime use while the leather seat provides comfort and the number 1 racing badge completes the coolness factor.
It is so beautifully crafted and made that your children may well give it to their children as an heirloom.
Many customers without children buy this car to use as a home decor. That’s how beautiful and perfectly hand-crafted, hand-painted these little metal cars are.
But we suggest you give this to a toddler in your family.
A word of caution to the adults among us
For goodness sake, please make sure you take your role as the adult seriously. Do not ever let a toddler – or anyone else – operate this metal car anywhere near an open stairwell or unguarded staircase. Do not operate this vehicle outdoors or on hills of any size – no matter how seemingly small. The only brakes are their feet. Stopping while going downhill inevitably means forced crashing – and that never ends well. Thank you for preserving their Age of Wonder intact.
