Fisher Price Little People Noah's Ark
Advantages: well made
Disadvantages: too much packaging
The usual retail price of the little people Noah's ark is around £30 but I actually brought this for the tiny price of £11 which I think for the toy you receive is a major bargain and I would actually pay full price for this product as the amount of play it has received from all 3 of my children makes it worth every penny. The boat comes in 2 pieces the lower deck and the top deck it also includes 14 animals 2 feeding stations Noah and his wife and flags to top the boat.
The toy itself is really well made the boat is made of durable plastic and is very good value and sturdy. The animals are also made of plastic and are just the right size for little hands. They have a hole at the bottom of each animal and over the boat on the top deck and on the roof of the boot are little station where the animals can be fitted and sit well. These are great for the birds that you receive in the set and also the flags you receive as they can be flown up high and there is no need to hold them while little one plays with the rest of the animals on the boot.
There is a door at the bottom level so you can put animals in and out and also on the top of the deck is a roofed area which has a gate either side for animals to pass through. These are very sturdy and unlike a lot of toys they stay intact no matter how much little one plays with them which I think is great as it means it does not need to be put on over and over again.
The bottom of the ark has wheels on it so that it can be pulled around easily by little one. It works well on carpet but even better on our wooden flooring my daughter likes to push the ark and see how far she can get it to go.
My only downside to this toy is the packaging it comes in. As with a lot of children's toys it is over the top and too much for the small toy that comes inside. Each animal has a packet and then a box within a box all tied in together which can mean it will be time consuming opening took me around 10 minutes.
Age recommendation for this toy is 12 months plus which I think is a good guide as the animals are chunky and safe for little hands to hold and my 18 month old son loves it. It also suits older children as my little girl was the one who received this as a gift and she loves it playing with the animals and putting them in and out the ark. My eldest son who is 4 also likes to play we used this toy as an aid to tell him about the story of Noah and his ark and he uses it to rein act what happened and something changes each time it really pulls on his imagination.
We have had this since January last year and it has been such a big hit as all toys can be stored inside the ark they get kept safe and I don't no find pieces scattered all over the set is all made of plastic so not only durable but also very easy to wipe clean. The animals can be used with or without the ark and the ark itself comes apart very easily to make 2 play stations so you could split the animals and the ark and then 2 children can play as there is only 1 door to the lower floor and 1 gate it can be rather difficult for them to play together.
