Little People Caring For Animals | A Review

Tuesday, 8 August 2017
We are always trying to encourage the children to be kind and compassionate and caring towards other people. We encourage them both to look after each other and others they are around as well as the environment surrounding. We learn through encouragement and good examples. Recently Fisher Price sent me over some research which shows that children as young as three are hindering their emotional intelligence by spending too much time in front of a screen, be that a console, tablets or smartphone. 

Following this research came the new Fisher Price Little People range which aims to encourage children to develop their intelligence both emotionally and practically. 

We received the Fisher Price Little People Caring For Animals playset which both Isla and Jack absolutely love. It encourages children to learn how to take care of the animals, allowing them to stimulate emotions and self-expression. 

We have other Little People sets and this one was a similar great quality and equal size, perfect for those still mastering their grips. This set came with the farm, a farmer and 4 animals, which all fitted perfectly for Isla. 

The Caring for Animals set comes ready set up, just needing the animals placing inside. There are four separate stables for the animals to sleep in, with the one section having a blanket to divide the two allowing you to tuck the animals up. The first day Isla played with this, when she went to bed that night she covered up the cows too. The next time she came to play she couldn't find the farmer and got upset about where he was and how the animals would be. 
There is also a nest area next to some chicks for the chickens, a corn crop tower, a hayloft, metal bell and some feed for the animals.

There are interactive features on the playset consisting of two buttons, one which lifts the eggs to hatch and the other controls the sound and light. Isla in particular loved listening to the songs and listening to what the farm had to say.

I have nothing negative to say about this toy, apart from the songs can get stuck in your head. 

Both my children absolutely love animals, so for this playset to show them how to care for them too was perfect and such a big hit. It's definitely one I would recommended for toddlers and pre-schoolers to encourage their development. Its recommended for children aged 12m+ and retails around £34.99, you can get this Little People Playset at all good retailers. 

Please Note: We received this toy in exchange for an honest review, all words and opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.
