MJ the loving mama. We loved that each thing is screwed in place so it can't fall apart even when it falls over (is pushed over) and he can be a bit rough with it. It's well made once you get past the initial putting it together phase (lots of pieces so be prepared).

Star313 The Fisher-Price Little People City Skyway. Fisher Price must have had me and my 22 month old son in mind when they came up with the idea for this amazing toy, and I actually got this spectacular tower of fun free for review, thanks to Fisher-Price and BzzAgent!

My son has to be the busiest baby ever, he will not stay still for nothing in the world, and it has always been very hard to keep him content since he has been walking, he is all over the place keeping me and my husband constantly on our toes while he messes with everything under the sun that he should not be messing with, until now.

The Little People City Skyway is definitely a unisex toy. It stands a little over 3 feet, taller than my son, with bright primary colors prefect for my sons Room. The toy arrived in its box fully disassembled with instructions that listed 44 easy steps. Each piece was numbered and it came with 20 screws, and needed 20 screws so I recommend you don't lose any, besides that, all you need is a Phillips head screwdriver to assemble it. I took me about 25 minutes to put it together, but as I stated it was very easy. I put it together while my son was asleep and he work up to a wonderful surprise.

The Little People City Skyway also comes with two little people in little cars, an African American girl in a lavender car and a Caucasian boy in a blue car. I thought that was wonderful, and teaches the children diversity at a young age. It is full of detail including the little paw prints, light signals and the money

When my son woke up in the morning, he was so surprised you could see it in his face. We call him Bam-Bam because he tries to destroy everything in his path, I was a little scared that he was going to demolish the to like he does everything else, but to my surprise he didn't even seem to have the desire to do so. I showed him the two cars and sent one down the roller coaster like ramp and that was all he needed to see. He immediately started playing with it sending the cars down one by one, talking and making all types of exciting noises satisfying his curiosity, he has discovered a whole new world of fun to keep him busy as he played with The Little People City Skyway for hours and still does. This toy is so sturdy I found this out when my son started carrying it everywhere he travels around the house and seeing that it's taller than him well you can only imagine how it hits against the walls and such until he gets to his destination. He even sends his other cars racing down the ramp. He often sends several car down one at a time as each car takes a different path. You can also purchase other sets of cars with little people in it from Fisher-Price. I love it. Keep it up Fisher-Price, this one is a classic and will be around for decades to come. I would recommend this toy for anyone with a little one ages 18 months to 5 years of age.

AlKa Thoughts My youngest son is 2.5 years old and has been having a difficult time sleeping in his big boy bed. He rarely gets new toys because we basically already have everything from when my older son was his age. We literally tried bribes of every kind to get him to stay in bed all night long. We tried toys, treats, nightlights music, no music, etc….but he was not having it! I knew I was getting the Little People City Skyway to try free from Fisher Price for the purpose of my review so I was hoping this would get him excited. The day it came in the mail I hid it from him. We went to the store and I saw the box on display. I told him if he slept all night in his big boy bed that he would have it waiting for him when he woke up. The next morning he woke up around 6am and came out looking for me. I had been up on and off much of the night waiting for him and I can't believe it! He never came out! When he opened up the box he was so excited. We dumped all of the pieces out on the floor….and let me tell you there are quite a few. I recommend an electric screwdriver (and a toy one for your little helper). The directions were easy to follow and I would have had it put together a lot quicker if I didn't have a 2.5 year old "helping" me and I had an electric screwdriver. He enjoyed watching the Little People City Skyway growing bigger and bigger! It was bright and colorful with yellow, red, blue and green. Every time I attached a new section of ramps he would try it out. By the time we put it all together it reached almost exactly his height. It was slighter taller with the flag on top. Every time you put a car on the top of the ramp it flips a switch so it's not always coming off the same ramp. My son loved trying to figure out which ramp it was going to come down. There were a few sections of ramp that when I put the screw in it camp right through the back but it doesn't seem to effect the overall function, although it may eventually. The city skyway comes with 2 cars which is perfect so my boys are not fighting over them! Other cars don't seem to go down the ramps as well so if you want extra cars I am sure the little people cars work well. My older son loves to turn the traffic light and signal the younger one when to go. Once they get to the bottom they are able to "gas" up and go for another round. My son gets up and throws a few cars down the ramps each day but I think maybe he is not a "car guy." My older son would have loved this when he was younger. Overall, it's the quality I expect of fisher price. I enjoy the bright colors. I had 4 kids playing on it today all of them at the same time. It's big enough to share and that is always a plus! If you have a boy or girl who loves cars, racetracks and making things go vroom I think they would love this toy. Oh and it has no annoying sounds! His best buddy is having a birthday coming up soon and this is what we are planning to get him.

SYRR03 *I received this product for free for testing purposes thanks to BzzAgent and Fisher Price. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own.



First of all it was really easy to put together, and it is secured with some screws. The instructions are super easy to follow and each piece comes with a number so you know what ramp goes where. Once assembled it stays that way, no matter how many times the kid moves it, flips it… it stays put.



As described, the Fisher-Price Little People City Skyway is three feet tall (36 inches and 5/8" to be exact because I measured it), and it is the tallest Little People play set to date.



My son loves the 3 ramps, specially the one that is a jumping ramp! Every time I put "my car" on the entry point he changes the switches to makes mine get into the jumping ramp and not his :) Fun thing is that the change of the switches can be made by you to make the cars take the path you'd like, or you can just leave it to the cars and they will come down in a different path every time (3 paths).



The product comes with two cars, Koby and Tessa. :) They are perfect sized, although Tessa's is lighter than Koby's and sometimes it gets stuck in the red ramp because it doesn't push the switch all the way to enter the path. We need to use other wheelies to see if its a problem with that car in particular or with other wheelies too. We don't know yet. That is a con for me, I would expect it to work with its own cars perfectly. We tried a Mater from the same wheelies collections and it gets stuck in every curve, the only way it can go down half way is if it goes down in reverse.



The Fisher-Price Little People City Skyway has a crane, a "light" signal (you can change it to red, yellow or green), 2 parking spots (one with a parking meter), a gas pump, and a working gate that my kid loves! The cars have a little spot with a hole so you can pretend you are pumping some gas into their tanks :)



My favorite part is the little details. You can see paw prints on the "concrete" as well as money, a camera, an ice cream cone and the core of an apple with some ants around, hand prints, a hear with the Little People initials, leaves and "chalk" drawings. There are also more things to find all over the tower and crane :)



It is easy to carry, although it is super big and there is no way to make it smaller to transport it, but it is not heavy so if you have space in your car's trunk it would be easy and a great to to brings to a play date at a friends house :)



I recommend this product to everyone! It also makes a great gift

I really like the CitySkyway. As described it is three feet tall (not much more because I measured it), although it is the tallest Little People play set to date. It was really easy to put together, and it is secured with some screws. I don't know why some people have commented that is comes apart easily?… because that is definitely NOT the case. the mechanism used to put the ramps together it is well done and does the job really well. I suggest reading the instructions carefully, and following them to the T.

finzup Disclosure: I received this product for free from Fisher Price for the purpose of evaluating it.



First let's talk about assembly - there are 44 steps to assembling this and it took about 20 minutes for my husband to assemble. He used a drill which made it faster but you can assemble it just fine with a screwdriver.

The instructions were detailed and all parts were labeled; it wasn't difficult just took a bit of time. So I would recommend not starting assembly if your little one is standing there waiting to play with it. Assemble it after they go to sleep .



What it comes with: you get the structure which has various slides, and 2 cars with people in them. The people aren't removable from the cars.



Ages: I think this toy would be perfect for anywhere from 18months up to 4 years old. My daughter is 2 years old and when she saw it, her eyes about popped out of her head and she said, "wooooooooow!! what's that" in her best 2 year old style. She figured out pretty quickly how to put the cars on the track (although a few times she put it on backwards). She also found the little hanging car storage thing and put one of the cars on there. I don't think she necessarily comprehends that when the car goes down it can take different paths but that will come with time.



Features: the toy is tall (taller than my 2 year old - she's about 34" tall). There's one place on the top to put the car and then it can take a few different paths down the structure and it comes out in one of 3 places - the red slide, the yellow slide, or the orange ramp. Each time the car travels down it switches the path (like a railroad switch) so that the next car that goes down will come down a different way. There's a mini gas pup at the bottom and also a "road" through with a gate barrier. On the side there's a hanging piece where you can store one car or use it as part of playing with it.



Overall, I would recommend this product to parents of both boys and girls. It's sturdy, relatively easy to assemble, and good for a wide age range. I can see a child playing on it solo (as my daughter does) or with friends as there are 2 cars and there's lots of ways for kids to interact together while playing. It would've been nice if the people came out of the car or were interchangeable with other little people but that's just a minor detail.

ZMomUtah My two-year old son and four-year old daughter have loved playing with this set since we got it!! The age range is for 1 1/2 to 5 years and I can definitely see how this appeals to both ends of the range. My 2-year old will stand and just put cars down over and over and over, and my 4-year old uses it for creative/ imaginative play (ie. using the gas pump, making up stories about the cars, etc.)



Fully assembled it measures approximately 36" tall, 23" wide, and 17" front to back. It is very lightweight and easy to move around, but does take up a bit of room, so keep that in mind that it doesn't come apart (easily) to store smaller. It's slightly taller than my 2-year old and a perfect height for him to put the cars at the top. It's tall enough and wide enough to give two kids room to play simultaneously without bugging each other. It includes a boy in a blue Jeep and a girl in a purple car, which is perfect for our situation. You can also use other Fisher Price Wheelie vehicles in it. My son likes putting down his little Matchbox- type cars, too.



One really cool feature is that there are "gateways" that switch paths each time a car goes through, so each time a car is sent down it takes a different path. My 4-year old is fascinated and keeps trying to figure out how it works and what path it will end up on. There is also a gas pump, parking meter, a swinging hanging crane that a car fits on, a gate on the very bottom, and a stoplight they can switch between red, yellow and green.



The box comes with over 20 loose parts you have to put together yourself (some involve screws, so you'll need a screwdriver). It took me well over 30 minutes to do it, and although it's not tricky at all, it is quite time consuming. It doesn't require brute strength, either- just snapping pieces together and screwing in pre-determined spots. The instructions are clear and pretty easy to follow- each section of road has numbers on the bottom so you know exactly what goes where. Word to the wise: don't expect to open the box and let your kids start playing immediately- you'll have impatient little kiddos all over you itching to get playing. Luckily my kids were napping when I opened it and I assembled it myself before they woke up.



This is a really versatile toy and holds the attention of both my 2- and 4-year old for a lot longer than most toys we have ever purchased. That's worth its weight in gold for me!!

Alibart77 I received this product for free thanks to Fisher-Price and BuzzAgent for my 2 year old daughter to try out and for an honest opinion. My daughter loves Fisher-Price Little People and she loves cars so I was pretty sure she'd enjoy this toy. It was very easy to put together, only needing a few screws here and there but there were quite a few different pieces. It took me about 20 minutes to build it while she was taking her nap, otherwise, it may have taken much longer! When she woke up from her nap and saw it, she was so excited. She ran right over to it and started playing, no explanation necessary.



She is exactly 3 feet and the skyway stand just a touch taller then her. This is the tallest toy she owns and she had no problem placing the Wheelies cars that came with it (there are two, a boy and a girl) up on top to send them down the ramp. It's great for her hand-eye coordination and for fine motor skill practice because the spot where you need to place the car is just big enough for the car itself. Each time she sent a car down, they came out a different ramp which makes it fun because you are surprised each time. It has a gas pump, a meter, a stop light which you can spin to change it's colors, a parking gate and a crane. The meter is a little cheesy. She loves the crane but I was a little disappointed because when I heard there was a crane, I figured it would move up and down. The way it is set up, it's more like a swing which she keeps pulling off so I'm worried it's going to get lost. The tower itself is very sturdy; she yanks on it and is rough with it and it does not topple over.



I was wondering if we'd have to purchase more Wheelies similar to the ones that came with the skyway (they a a bit heavier than ones I purchased just last holiday season). I tried out the two lighter weight Wheelies that we had and they do work but they are slower and get stuck once in a while, but if it comes down to it, they are fine. We had kids over for my daughter's birthday last weekend and kids as old as 12 were have a great time playing with the skyway and racing the cars. It is super fun for individual play or group play and it's a well made product. You will not be disappointed!
