Majority of children love animals, and mine love visits to the farm, seeing the animals and how they change. Jack especially loved how these reminded him of his farm visits and recreating some farm scenes.
The Schleich toys are recommended for ages 3+, however with some careful supervision Isla has been having a play too. She's almost 2 now (sob!) so quite aware of not putting things in her mouth, but we always look on the safe side.
For Schleich everything is about imaginative play and children's imaginations are great. Isla tends to play with these alone as she doesn't really understand yet, but Jack puts his imagination to key and takes them rides in the toy cars, and builds them some homes. But Jack loves showing each animal to Isla, telling her what they are and the noises they make.
As I previously mentioned this set has an RRP of £14.99, which I think is great value for money. You can view the whole range of Schleich and plan your extensive collection on from Smyths Toy Store.
