Toy StateFrom Toy State's Road Rippers collection comes the new "Rock & Roller" line, a pair of classically-styled hot rods with lights, sound, and motion. The "Rat Rod" edition recently arrived here at Rock Father HQ for evaluation in our State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house and neighborhood), immediately scoring points with both of my girls as a vehicle that's pretty appropriate.

I mean, it's a ROCK and Roller...

Pin This!

Easy-to-operate with a trio of buttons, this is one of those instances where, even though it's touted for ages 3+, my 16-month-old has commandeered the Ride. Little Finley has been rockin' this one since it arrived here nearly two months ago, and big sister Addie digs it, too. The engine rumbles as it roars... the passenger compartment lights-up red (cool in the dark)... while a little tune rocks out...

The Road Rippers Rock & Roller should be showing up at Walmart stores Nationwide right now, while further information can be found online at ToyState.com.
