- The KiwiCo Product Design team

This is our favorite kit from KiwiCo so far! Both kids, ages 2 and 6, loved playing with the balloon cars. They have held up to a lot of enthusiastic play the last few days! I was on a call for work when they started playing with these, and at first I heard shrieks that I thought were arguing. Then I realized they were shrieks of utter delight. Definitely recommend this kit!
