product information

Vehicles available separately. Exciting road system with ramps, bridges and flyovers for lots of driving fun.

This Carry Along City is a fantastic landscape for your child to drive all their cars around. They can push a car up a ramp, steer it over the flyovers then send it zooming down back to ground level again. They can park outside the shops, or stage a police chase through the streets! The Carry Along City folds up neatly and makes its own carry case. To set it up, simply slot the ramps together. There is room in the case for storing your favourite cars too. This great play city also connects to the Big City Garage for extra driving fun! Vehicles and Big City Garage available separately.

Quick facts:

•Fun city with roads, bridges, flyovers and a helipad
•Shops, roundabouts, ramps and parking spaces
•Folds away into its own carry case
•Attaches to Big City Garage (available separately)

Great for your child's development:
The Big City Carry Along City enables your child to take their play wherever they want to. They can enjoy real-life pretend play, where they drive to the shops or go on holiday in the play city, for example. Or they can invent endless imaginative toy city scenarios, such as speedy police chases, car-eating monster attacks or talking cars having a street party. The Carry Along City is a great open-ended play toy, which also means it leaves your child with space to expand their adventures as they grow.

ELC star quality:
We love the Big City Carry Along City because it is so simple yet offers so many rewarding ways to play. It's a great way to use all your cars and we've designed the play city to fold up and store away neatly, which means it's also easy to take to friends' houses or away on holiday. The biggest bonus is that we've made the city attach to the Big City Garage via the end of the ramp – the two toys together are a fantastic combination.

What you need to know:

I bought this excellent product for my Grandson's 3rd Birthday (he's now 4 and a half) He absolutely loves playing with his Big City Carry Along City and only today he asked me if I could buy him the Big City Garage to go with it !! I cannot see him growing out of this product anytime soon. There's also plenty of room inside once its all folded up to store all his cars too.

I loved the concept of this product and it is easy to put together.

However quality is extremely poor. It falls apart with the slightest nudge which means when my my son plays with it, I am putting it back together literally every 2 minutes.

Can't believe I paid £40 for this. Not ELcs usual standard

Would not recommend even for the current £20 price tag.

In the main I really like this product. It is a great extension to the Big City Garage and folds away easily. We have also taken it to relatives' houses for the children to play with.

For the most part the product is durable, the plastic is strong and I suspect my 2 year old could stand on it without it getting broken.

I have however got a few issues with this product. The main one is with the grey coloured 'shop' which has a black removable lid on top of it. The lid fits beautifully until you attach the red bridging part to it then bridging part pushes on the side of the grey shop, the black lid then barely fits and pops off very easily. Also, the yellow ramp which connects the garage to the Carry Along City does not fix securely to the City and actually just kind of balances on the grey shop. Even the slightest knock causes the ramp to move and dislodge the already unstable black lid. These problems frustrate my children and mean that they have no real inclination to get it out.

So in summary this product is a great concept and mostly well executed, However, some poor fitting parts mean I would not recommend this to anyone and I do not believe it would be worth the £40 price tag.

We bought this when it was half-price so good value for money. It is fiddly to put together and comes apart easily when our son is playing with it. However it is portable and our two-year old enjoys playing with it. It also connects easily to the garage at a separate point to the race track so we can cover the floor!

Suffolk, UK GB
Our 3 year old son loved playing with this, especially with friends.

However you will need plenty of cars as it doesn't come with any, and it takes an adult to set up the track/roadway as a 3 year old couldn't assemble this on their own.

My son (almost 3) has had this for nearly a year and plays with it almost every day. He loves it, and we love the convenience of being able to pack it away in the evenings. The only downsides are that the helicopter landing pad doesn't fix on very firmly which he gets a bit frustrated with, and a couple of the street-lights have broken - they could do with being a bit sturdier for little people. But the rest is in perfect condition, and looks like being a favourite for years to come. A great purchase, highly recommended.

My boys have had this toy for 3 years now. Aged 6 & 4. It is great to take on holiday and has plenty of room inside the case to pack a few extra toys and books. Highly recommended and adds an extra play dimension if you have the big city garage
