Is there such a thing as a modern day toy for kids  that's fun but doesn't require batteries?  Yes,  Wow Toys are a parent's dream.  What's so special about them?

Here's why they're every parent's dream.  These toys move by friction, not batteries. Let me say that again.  Wow toys don't need batteries.  Ever.  For any parent who's ever ripped apart their kitchen drawers trying to find a AA or other size battery for their child's toy, and usually with no luck, this is a dream toy.  Fun toys that move and no more looking for batteries.   Love that.

It was one of my nephews, visiting from out of state a few years ago, who introduced me to Wow toys.  They're made in Britain and the first thing I noticed was how cute and colorful they were.  Each one is named and any figures included with the toy are named too.  The toys are great for both boys and girls.  Lots of the beloved digger toys for boys and cute pink campers and stuff like that for little girls.

Wow toys are sturdy too.  No flimsy parts on any of the Wow toys I've bought.  They have stood the test of time and destructive fingers of a toddler and still work and look like the day I took them out of the box.

That leads me to yet another reason I'm a fan of Wow toys.  Getting them out of the box doesn't take hours.  Many modern toys are bolted down or tied with plastic strips that seem to take forever to remove from box.  Not so with Wow toys.  You'll have them out of the box in seconds, which is exactly what every child wants.

I've found a great selection of Wow toys at the Village Toy Shop in the New Hartford Shopping Center.  They are more expensive than many other toys on the market but to me, no batteries is worth the extra money I'd be spending on all those batteries.  Wow.
