Little People Caring for Animals Review

We love Fisher-Price Little People – they are easy to hold for small hands and they are robust and grow with your child too. The Little People Caring for Animals Farm is no different.

Fantastically engaging for young children, this Caring for Animals Farm folds out to add to fun or closes shut for more compact storing. Both my two and five-year-old love playing and interacting with the animals on the farm. Benjamin enjoys the animals for what they are and makes their noises – he’s also started to talk about baby and mummy animals which has sparked new conversations. Isabella will play happily alongside Benjamin but creates characters and personalities for all the animals too and emerges herself in a whole imaginary world.

Brilliantly interactive

What I love most about the Caring for Animals Farm is how interactive it is. We’ve played with the Animal Sounds Farm before and as lovely as it is, it doesn’t have quite so many feature. The Caring for Animals farm has many more features – we particularly enjoy the silo and the hatching chicks but the bell and blanket have had plenty of use too. There’s even a working light beside the barn door!

Learning about how to care for the animals is prompted throughout play when the discovery button is used. Pop open the stall doors to hear fun songs and phrases. It even tells you to cover up the animals with the warm blanket. The children ring the bell to let all the animals know it’s dinnertime or bedtime and call them in from the fields – they have even tried their luck in using the bell to call for a snack!

What’s Included?

The Caring for Animals Farm includes a farmer, Jed, and four animal figures: pig, chicken, horse & a cow with her calf. We already have some additional Little People animals and use them with this playset for extra fun.

Songs and Phrases

The songs and phrases are fun and educational. They talk about the importance of brushing the animals’ fur, cleaning up the pigs and explaining where the animals sleep and of course talk about the importance of feeding the animals too. The interactive discovery button helps the children to develop their emotional intelligence as well as their self-expression.

When it’s time to pack the farm away, the animals will store tidily inside and the back of the barn closes shut making it easier to store away (or take to Nana’s house for a play). The carry handle means the children can easily move the farm as and when they need.

This truly wonderful toy will last for years. It’s strong enough to withstand a toddler’s heavy handedness, it’s characters are fun and engaging and easy for smaller hands to hold and the educational sounds will keep the older ones engaged too. This fab toy gets a big five stars from us and retails at £34.99. It’s suitable from 12 months+ but I would imagine that slightly younger children would get enjoyment from it too.

  1. Little people are such a great toy and last for generations. We are big fans here and this looks like a great set x

  2. Mary Eden says:

    My only disappointment in the toy is on setting 2 at bedtime when the farmer suggests we “cover the cow with his favorite blue blanket.” I’m a language arts teacher in a rural county. I’d be fine with “its favorite blue blanket” or even the more modern “their favorite blue blanket.”
