My boys love their cars, and with three boys it means we have a lot of cars everywhere. When my oldest son was little he had a plastic toy car garage, which constantly fell apart, so somehow we lost it in a move. Ever since I have been looking for the right wooden toy car garage, a toy car garage which would bring joy instead of frustration, and when I discovered the KidKraft Deluxe Garage set, I knew I had found the perfect toy car garage for my kids.
The KidKraft Deluxe Garageset has to be assembled, so with the help of my oldest sons I attempted the mission. Assembling the toy car garage took time (2 hours), but it was a great project to do with the kids.
I did run into a few assembling issues that my husband had to help out with, but the finished result is fantastic. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and I especially appreciated the fact that every piece came with a number on it. I sure wish all toys requiring assembly came with such a feature, because it made assembling the toy car garage a lot easier.
My boys love their new toy car garage, and The KidKraft Deluxe Garage set is very impressive. This wooden toy car garage certainly deserves the Deluxe stamp.
First of all, the KidKraft Deluxe Garage set is 25 inches tall, which is almost as tall as my 2 1/2 year old son. Secondly, the KidKraft Deluxe Garage set is built of wood, and as extra bonuses it is has colorful details that shows great craftsmanship. It also comes with both cars, signs and extras such as a car wash and a gas station.
The elevator in the toy car garage is a big hit with the boys, and they have a blast racing the cars down the roadway. The cars can go from the top of the car garage and down the two-story ramp all in one drive. This fabulous toy car garage is perfect for the wooden cars that comes with it, but it also works great with my boys’ small metal toy cars. Not all of the metal toy cars fit the elevator, but some of them do, and my kids quickly learned to either drive the cars into the elevator a bit sideways, or to simply park the cars on top of the elevator to make more of the cars fit.

Cons About The KidKraft Deluxe Garage
Not all Matchbox and Hot Wheel cars fit in the elevator
When assembling the car garage, some of the screws were in places, where a regular screwdriver could not fit. (Solution = short screwdriver)
The sides of the ramp should have been slightly higher to better prevent the cars from falling.
