Possibly the best wind-up toy ever invented, the Racing Grannies are to geriatric speedway what Ferrari is to Formula One. As anyone who has been on the receiving end of a Zimmer-frame will know, grannies are formidable movers with legendary stamina, and these delightful wind-ups are testament to their endurance. Depending on the surface, the grannies will travel approximately 30-40cm when fully wound up. With expressions of steely determination and complete with go-faster cardigans, these two are just a few winds away from the race of their lives. It's time to have your own Gran National!
- Set of 2 wind-up grannies.
- Clashing outfits, silver hair, droopy breasts and a snazzy zimmerframe.
- Adjustable arms so the Grannies can be in 'Stand-up' mode or bent to 'Race' mode.
- When fully wound up, the grannies will travel 30-40cm depending on the surface
- Made of plastic.
- Presented in an illustrated box with witty captions.
- Suitable for ages 8 years+.
- Size: - Individual Granny: 8 x 6 x 4cm
- Presentation Box: 15.5 x 11.5 x 7cm.
Whilst this product is technically suitable for those of 8 years and up, after extensive research (well, the office) we have discovered that the older you are the more hilarious you find this product.

Great for a laugh
Wonderfully silly. Just the kind of thing to keep grandchildren laughing (and occupied) for hours.
The racing grannies are great fun! The detail on the models: droopy boobs and stoop add to it. The racing granny and grandpa are not as good, simply because the grandpa is so much faster than the granny.
Bought for a mischievous kid who loved them. Hours of entertainment, adults even began betting on the outcome!
Great funny present
Brilliantly different gift for girls who have everything! Big laughs all round.
Bought this for my friend as a christmas present and im sure she will love it! Nothing was damaged in the box, but nothing was secure inside (e.g. bubblewrap), everything was moving around if you picked up the box.. but as for the product, it is a funny little toy :-)
Go Granny GO!
The Racing Grannies proved to be a popular prize with the big kids in our office! They provided a lot of fun and entertainment. A good quality product guaranteed to be a big hit with the recipient. Arrived in a nice box too.
Bought the Racing Grannies to race at Christmas when the relatives come round, they are hilarious. They function well and are fun, but if I had a slight criticism, they could go a bit further as the limit to the spring is 1 foot.
The Racing Grannies is good fun and worth the money. It looks like we are going to be laughing our socks off on Christmas Day.
The Racing Grannies are great fun and I can't wait for my son to see it at Christmas.
I bought these Racing Grannies, only to find that they did not work. I was not impressed as I've never had a problem with anything from here before but that was poor. They are impressive but I expected them to work for a short while!
I wanted to get something for my friend who was turning 40. I'm that little bit younger than her and I'm always pointing it out. My friend loves these Racing Grannies and has had evenings with friends round to have granny racing. What a hoot!
The whole family aged 2 to 75 found the Racing Grannies hilarious!
My uncle loved them the Racing Grannies, these critters brought a smile to his face. What more can a person want?!
Stupid mindless fun
These Racing Grannies are a lot of fun to pass away the time, especially after a few tipples to help lighten up. Only problem is after you play with them once they become a little tedious.
The Racing Grannies are so cute. However, they are not nearly as durable as they ought to be and their balance isn't particularly good. They're great for a laugh but fairly weak.
Disappointed all the way
Racing Grannies are cheaply made. It is almost impossible for them not to tip over immediately. The wheels are not round and stick, so that forward movement does not happen. Only one of the two actually moves forward.
We loved this one! We started off racing them and then ended up battling them one against the other which was hysterical! Work best on a flat surface, not so good on the tablecloth but great on the wood fllor.
Cheap fun for a secret Santa
Very apt present for a pensioner relation. Had a laugh trying to race grannies at dinner table. Wound up ok so no batteries. Smaller than I thought - about 8cm high. however worked well.
had so much fun round the table with these racing grannies!
the racies grannies were so much fun. was just getting in practice for when it's my time to use a zimmer !! i would definetly recommend any to purchase from your website. service and delivery excellent. my parcel arrived next day.
