This is the front half of a car that lets aspiring mechanics pop the hood, change the oil, and tinker with the engine. With a removable cowling, spark plugs, wing nuts, and other lifelike car components, children can practice testing the brakes, changing the air filter, and using the dipstick to check the oil levels. Once a repair job is complete, kids can even get behind the wheel to turn the ignition key and hear how the engine sounds when it starts. The car has a working horn and headlights, and the set comes with a screwdriver, wrench, and other tools sized to fit little grease-monkey hands. Requires eight AAA batteries. Ages 3 and up. 17" L x 15 3/4" W x 20 3/4" D. (13 1/2 lbs.)

Awesome little engine
By Old Man Bio
from Southampton, UK
This is a brilliant little engine. It's always hard to imagine what it would be like when all you have is a few pictures to go by. But i wasn't disappointed at all once the engine arrived. It appears to be sturdy of a solid construction, so should take the abuse from my 2 year old easily. It looks the part and is a fairly good representation of an engine and components.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

5 yr old Grandson loved this car engine.
By Grandpa & Grandma Ellsworth
from Elkhart, In.
Immediate shipment. 5-yr. Grandson LOVED the car engine repair. He used the tools right away and changed the tire, removed the spark plugs. He and his Mom were mechanics together. My daughter learned from her father to work on cars and now my daughter is passing this down to her son. It was a family moment! I wanted the engine start up to be louder. But, I was more interested in hearing my grandson say, "I'm taking out the boulders, Grandma." (bolts), so very cute!

I had this shipped to the uk for my grandson fpr christmas, from what i can see with this toy, it is going to be worth every expensive shipping fee penny just to see his little face on christmas morning, no problems with the car, hardly any assembly needed, Im sure it will keep him entertained for a long time, Shipping was exceptionally fast and service was great x
Totally awesome and realistic!
from Seattle WA
I run a childcare for children and the 3 to 5 years are going to love this! I also have a 7 year old friend who thinks its fantastic! He is practicing how it works first. It's a way cool toy that teaches basic car parts. FANTASTIC.
from Throckmorton, Texas
It's grateful my son is 5 and I wish he would have had this at age 3. He loves it.
Levi can change his own tires
from santa ana
We have a tire shop and I was delighted to see that Levi can indeed change his "own" tire with this toy. Great item, now if there just was a car that could be taken apart and then put back together again, I would buy it!!!!
Every little boys dream
By Happy Momma D
from Latrobe PA
My son just turned 4 and he lives for anything mechanical or car wise. He LOVES the repair set I would Def recommend for any little guy
Great for kids who like to tinker!
Our 3yr old son loves to remove all the parts and reassemble with dad's help. He especially likes to honk the horn, and "drive" it around the house.
