There is nothing worse than being stuck indoors all winter long. It is really depressing and being an outdoor kid I love being able to go outside and do things. Winter has no doubt overstayed its welcome this year, leaving kids itching for outdoor playtime and parents craving ways to keep their children entertained. And Toy State is ready to spring into action with exciting new offerings from its flagship Road Rippers brand as well as Hot Wheels and CAT licensed products.
Now celebrating it’s 30th anniversary, Toy State aims to inspire a state of imagination in kids and parents alike by creating exciting adventures during both indoor and outdoor play. And any adventure is possible with Toy State’s spring 2014 line.
Here is a bit about Toy State:

These toys have taken a beating and not just from me but from my brothers as well. They have tumbled down the stairs and they have been thrown by me and they still work just as they did out of the box. Not much toys can take a beating from a toddler and live to tell about it but these sure do! Your little ones will love the interactive details but be sure to keep some batteries on hand because with the amount of use they’ll get, you do not want to run of of juice power. We are also loving the price points on these vehicles as well. Not too expensive at all!
With the super great weather that’s being experienced now there is no excuse for your little ones to be kept indoors. Take these super cool cars and trucks for a spin inside and outside. Be sure to check out the other amazing toys that’s available at Toy State. Toy State gets me and my brothers THUMBS UP!
