Create a Road Tape with Toy Car Playset, My First Autobahn, 36 Yards X 2 InchWhen my boys were little, they took the board off the beds and drew all over them, making roads for their cars, colouring in trees and buildings.

No, I didn't give them permission, they did it while I thought they were sleeping.

All these years later they are a conversation piece - we use the boards to make a bigger table at Thanksgiving.

So when I saw this road tape, I was reminded of that - and how much the boys would have loved this tape - especially my middle son - who lived for tape!!

He would literally dance around the room if given tape as a gift!

However, knowing my boys, I would have ended up with road tape on every surface of the house

Now your little one can drive anywhere.
• Adhesive tape road sticks to walls, floor, table - take it anywhere to keep the kids entertained. Includes a vehicle.
• Tape measures: 2 inches wide x 108 feet
• As with any tape, it sticks - so be aware of where you use it.

For a cheaper version:

• Tape measures: 2 inches wide x 75 feet long

NOTE: these designs are printed on standard packaging tape and will leave ink and adhesive residue behind if adhered to a floor, table or tile even for a short period of time.

If using the 'Dashed-Line Road' pattern for Matchbox cars or LEGO cars on a surface you want to later remove it from please test it out first on an inconspicuous part of the surface and leave it on a few days to make sure you can remove it with adhesive cleaner and a strong bristle brush first as desired.

Or of course, you could always just buy regular duct tape at the Dollar Store and simply add in the road markings with a marker and add in your own Hot Wheels cars.
