To most parents, spending hours navigating a crowded parking garage sounds like a living hell, but for kindergarteners it can be a little slice of heaven. A three-level parking structure, complete with elevator, helipad, car and parking attendant, this play set is crafted of quality wooden components and colored with natural dyes, making it ultra-safe for children as well as environmentally sustainable. Kids will love driving their car up the spiraling driveway and picking a perfect parking spot, and parents will love that they're also practicing fine motor skills and imaginative play.
