What our experts think
With lots of scope for play, this set is perfect for any animal lover! The pieces were robust and vibrant and the building instructions were clear. We liked the addition of pictures as this made it much more accessible to the children. Once built (the older children did this independently), they quickly set about engaging in imaginative play – there was a lot of role playing and storytelling. We liked how the children drew on their real-life experiences to inform and enhance their play. This helps them act out and make sense of the world around them, and also helps build related vocabulary.
The accessories were a big hit and the children were delighted as they discovered each one. The children enjoyed tacking up the horses, grooming them and feeding them. They could also pretend to muck them out! We felt that the addition of the accessories fostered curiosity as the children enquired as to what they were and how they were used, building their knowledge and understanding of animals and farm life.
