The Waytoplay Road: Our New Play Time Discovery!

The Story behind the Waytoplay Road
So, the waytoplay road is an open ended toy that will allow your children to create toy roads and worlds that have only lived in their imagination until then. It is a flexible race track made from child safe rubber, fantastic for endless fun. It is a collection of road segments, race tracks, parking spaces, crossings, all in different sets that can be combined together.
The road was created by Dutch designer, inventor and father Sybren Jelles. As a child he loved playing with toy cars outdoors, and he created waytoplay for his son Joep, in 2003. This passion led down a road of evolution to the flexible weatherproof toy road that we can all enjoy today.
We got the King of the Road bundle, with 40 pieces and you have tracks to create many circuits. You get 16 curves, 16 straights, 4 intersections and 4 roundabouts. A total of 648cm of fun.
Why do we like Way to play roads?
There are many good reasons why we enjoy and encourage our children playing with it...
Open-ended tool with endless possibilities
It is an exciting invitation to creativity
Fantastic complement to other toys
It can be challenging and also helps with problem solving, not all combinations lead to a closed circuit… so it takes time to figure out how to make your circuit fit and close.
Flexible toy that can be used on land and underwater
Durable and unbreakable (although my son did bite one piece pretending it was pizza and now we have his teeth prints as a reminder.
Very easy to clean
It is fantastic.
Where can you play with a way to play road?
We decided to take the road out for a run during our summer holidays and honestly, you can play with them anywhere. It is true that the tracks hold better together on a hard surface, but check out all the terrains we've played on - it's still been fun
On a wooden floor...
By the pool...
Underwater inside the pool...
Running through grass...
At the beach - on dry sand…
…or on wet sand (be careful, if the waves come in they might take some pieces away… luckily they didn't go far)
Over and under the Wobbel board...
We still need to try it up the bath tub and bathroom walls. It's on our to do list ;)
As you can see, we've had a fun summer ;)
Again, it works best on hard surfaces because it holds in place much better… but you can make them work anywhere your imagination takes you.
