Guidecraft Community & Roadway Essentials Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

My children have played with their Guidecraft Roadway System (SRP $88) every day since they received it and I love that it promotes their creativity through open ended play. This creative wood toy set allows children to design their own roadway system and build cities complete with easy to assemble roadway configurations. These larger sized pieces are very appealing to children and the kids love to play with their designs. I appreciate that I can continue adding to the set with Community Buildings (SRP set of 6/$88) and the Community Roadways Essentials set (SRP $44.95) to continue keeping play fresh and fun!

Guidecraft Community & Roadway Essentials Review

The Community Roadways Essentials is an excellent addition to our Roadway System. It is a complete block play accessory collection and my three children were so excited to starting creating their new city. It includes a 36 piece wooden block play set that features 6 vehicles, 12 signs, 6 community workers, and two separate 4 piece family sets. They love figuring out what each road sign means as they pretend to drive the fire engine, school bus, police car, ambulance, city truck and their favorite, the ice cream truck. Adding the wooden community workers and additional people really elevated their play time as they could now incorporate role playing and practice team work and social skills.

Guidecraft Community & Roadway Essentials Review

Guidecraft is known for its exceptionally constructed wood toys and this product is no exception. The pieces are extremely durable and made of solid wood construction so it can withstand years of interactive play. Recommended for ages 3 and up, this play set is sure to get lots of use with young children. I am very pleased with this set and it is an even bigger hit with my children who are ages 5, 6 and 8……it is a toy they can enjoy playing with independently or cooperatively.
