We went to the zoo as part of our family vacation this summer, and now Bid talks about it all of the time. Whenever we get in the car and drive for more than 20 min. she always asks if we are going to the zoo.
She loved the monkeys and the big kitties and would spend every day there if possible. Since that would NOT be fun for anyone else in the family , we thought a better option would be to bring the zoo to her with the new Fisher-Price Little People® Zoo Talkers™ Animal Sounds Zoo.
The zoo is really fun! It comes with a polar bear, lion, gorilla,and zoo keeper, and they each have their own special "habitat." There is a ticket booth for the zookeeper, a fun arctic water slide for the polar bear, a tree house and swing for the gorilla, and a grassland area for the lion.
There is also a fun peek-a-boo feature on the tree where the Little People Animals or People can pop out at you!
The play set is great for kids, because the Zoo animals are designed to interact and make noises when placed on different parts of the play set. Things click and squeak, and when the animals are placed on the dock it recognizes the name of the animal and the sound it makes.
I also like that the play set is double sided so more than one kid can play with it at a time.
To Buy - The Fisher-Price Little People® Zoo Talkers™ Animal Sounds Zoo retails for $40.00 and is a great addition to the Little People line of toys. The play set is very interactive and can provide hours of fun for your little one. Additional animals for the set can be purchased separately, and may have to make an appearance at our house this Holiday Season!
To Win - To go along with this fun new toy, there is a Little People™ Animal Sounds Contest going on now through Nov. 30th!
