Super little portable set, 2 year old loves it
on 12 February 2016
My nearly 3 year old received this for Christmas and it has been one of her most returned to toys in the time since. Not just as a fan of Minnie Mouse, this is a great set for fans of small world play with good choices of furniture to encourage little creative play scenarios.
Consisting of a bedroom, bathroom, sitting room with tv and kitchen with seat and table, the only built in furniture is in the kitchen which makes a change from Happyland or fisher price little people sets , but the removable aspect of furniture is good for older toddlers/preschoolers to create their own settings and interactive play with other sets.
A bonus from a parents point of view is that it is self storing by clicking the two halves back together, and this also makes it portable- we have popped a few other characters in and taken to great grandparents without any fuss.
The only downside is the same that is so with all small world sets (particularly Happyland!) in that the door is not as robust as it could be and young children with developing gross motor skills can be a bit rough with the doors leading them to fall off, but to be honest, it's easy to pop back on the knobs, they don't snap or break off rendering useless and my daughter has learnt to tell me or another family member as soon as it happens so it can be fixed and she is gentler with it now as a consequence.
To be honest it's not worth knocking a star off as this is much more tenacious than some of her other sets form other brands!
Overall, I'm pleased with this purchase, my daughter loves it, incorporates other toys into it as its so appealing and the self storage aspect is great for tidying up and portability. Definitely recommend this product and would considering expanding her collection.
