With the help of augmented reality (AR) technology, Toy Drive allows you and your kids to experience an interactive simulation of driving a virtual remote controlled (RC) car through the real world. In order to work, the app requires that your device's camera recognize a target image. You can print out the free, pre-made target images included in the app or create temporary ones by taking pictures with your device's camera.
Toy Drive is specifically designed for kids 6+ years old. At this age, kids love making up their own stories. We recommend that you print out different targets and place them in different rooms around the house. Then, let your kids go from room to room with the device (“Spaceship”) while imagining Wheely and his friends’ adventures in the different worlds.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start your engines!

What's New in Version 2.7
This version includes WINTER WORLD, the first new world we've added since the launch. It's packed with cool new digital elements like igloos, christmas trees, a Yeti and a trailer that hooks on to your vehicle. But most exciting of all, it can recognize real world objects!
To take advantage of this awesome feature, prepare a marker for WINTER WORLD and place a few objects around it. Next, point your device's camera at the target, bring the device closer and then pull away. Next, pan your device's camera around the objects. After a few seconds, they'll be covered in a layer of virtual ice!
Once the objects have been iced over, they'll be treated as obstacles. Try driving into one and you'll hear an awesome crunching noise! To remove the ice and start over, just press the snowflake in the bottom right corner of the screen.
It's all explained in an animated tutorial that automatically pops up once you launch WINTER WORLD.
In honor of WINTER WORLD, we also added a new vehicle - the sleigh! It works great with Winter World, but you can also try it out with WESTERN WORLD, CANDY LAND and all the other worlds you already know and love.
