If you are looking for a toy car for your son with a unique Australian twist, keep an eye out for Roary the Racing Car, Talking Conrod in your local toy store.
Named Conrod, not to be confused with Conrad, he is named after the Conrod Straight at Mount Panarama in Bathurst. His name isn’t the only thing that will have rev-head dads excited to have playtime with their sons, Talking Conrod moves with friction, push him along and hear his engine roar.
This friendly V8 is voiced by our very own Craig Lowndes who is three times Australian Touring Car Champion and four times Bathurst winner. This extremely Aussie accent comes complete with the welcoming line “G’day Mate, I’m Conrod” and this is a great option for parents who are tired of overly American toys.
Conrod is part of the Roary the Racing Car family, he is the newest addition and this toy is a fun way to improve their hand eye coordination skills.
Made for ages 3+, your son will have hours of fun zooming Conrod around the floor, and if that’s not enough there are more characters in the series to collect including Roary, Drifter, Tin Top, Plugger, Cici, Maxi, Hellie and Nick.
You can purchase Roary the Racing Car – Talking Conrod from Target, Big W and independent toy stores with an RRP of $19.95.
