ELC HappyLand Police Station
Advantages: Detailed, durable and great value for money
The Happyland PC Buttons Police Station from the Early Learning Centre was a recent purchase for my son who is currently 21 months old. He has a fascination with toys that have opening and closing parts and he is very favourable towards play sets like this one.
PC Buttons Police Station is part of the vast collection of Happyland toys available at the Early Learning Centre. Sets start at £8 for a simple set of figures and rise to £40 for larger, more comprehensive play sets. The recommended age for these products is between 18 months to 4 years.
Just as with the majority of the Early learning Centre's range of toys, this toy looks and feels well designed and thought out. There is attention to detail in the opening door, the furniture within the police station and the sound effects to give it that added interest.
This product certainly looks and feels more substantial than it appears online so I would certainly recommend checking it out in store. Another advantage of not buying this toy online of course is that ELC charge £4.95 (per order) for delivery.
This particular set cost £16 and comes complete with a police station, a police car, a police dog (a Basset Hound), a road block, a police motor bike with side car, traffic lights and a police man and woman. My son's favourite feature is the police dog, or the "bow-wow" as he refers to it, though he also loves to whizz the car and bike around the living room, making his own sound effects as he goes!
The PC Buttons Police Station is now slightly different in terms of colour than that shown on the picture above. The predominant theme of this set is cream and blue and the police station itself sports a rather lovely blue tiled roof, windows and door. It has a very clean and attractive look about it and is not garish in its colouring like some other brands of toys. The characters have quirky features and are nice and chunky for little hands to grip.
This product is strong and sturdy and its shiny plastic surface makes it easy to wipe clean whenever the need arises.
What I find so fantastic about the Happyland range of toys is that as well as being toys on their own, they also build into a wonderful collection and can be stored away in the play mat storage box also available from the Early Learning Centre.
Toys like this one will keep children entertained for years rather than months and at just £16 it really is a bargain. The Happyland range is also a great idea as a stocking filler for Christmas and a collection that can be built upon throughout the year.
