Fisher-Price Little People Animal Sounds Farm
I had one of these Fisher-Price sets a couple of decades ago. Then I watched my cousins have fun with one. So when I made out a Christmas list last December for my two year old son, I just had to purchase the Animal Sounds Farm for him. In the beginning, he didn't seem to care much for it, but now at two and a half years, he can't seem to stop playing with it.
The set came with a variety of figures to play with, including a horse, pig, sheep, goat, and farmer. They are chunky, easy-to-grasp plastic--perfect for a toddler's grip. Mine do not have fur which is a huge perk in my book as I feel my completely plastic figures are a little easier to sanitize. My son really enjoys stuffing all the animals in the silo for storage when it is time to put the farm away.
The farm makes a variety of farm animal noises when doors are opened and closed or the appropriate pieces pushed. The farm is also crafted in a solid way and has survived all manner of reckless treatment from my child. It has been a versatile and well-loved fixture in our home this spring, and my child also enjoys mixing in random animal figures from other playsets in the barn. He cares more for the animals than for the sound options so I feel that the farm is actually encouraging some imaginative play.
This is a great toy. I got it for my son and he LOVED it! He played with the animals and loved the sounds on the barn. When I babysit my nieces who are 18 months, 3 and 6 they also play with it. This toy is great for all ages and I would buy it again in a heart beat! You will get you monies worth out of this toy.
