My almost 17 month year old daughter has a growing collection for toys and figures from the Fisher Price Little People range, and I have to say I think it is a brilliant range for young children, and great quality, like most other FIsher Price toys. My only slight negative is that at CHristmas time when I went to purchase some more toys from the range, there wasn't very much that was very girly to choose from, in comparison to the more male orientated toys like garages etc. My sister who knew my daughter had this range, noticed this Little People Open and CLose SUV on offer in TK Maxx for a tenner and told me she had got it as part of my little girls Christmas present.
This Open and Close SUV is technically only a car and two figures, but part of the attraction certainly for my daughter is the actual people and the noises that the car makes. This car has a mummy and a baby. The mummy is in the driver seat can be pushed down and there are three noise/music options played in turn - a horn tooting, laughing and then a catchy version of 'If you're happy and you know it' only without the words. This is very appealing to my daughter who loves all things electronic and musical in toys and presses the mummy figure down continually, as well as dancing along to the song. The baby figure is slightly daft looking as it is permanently sitting in a seat, so there is little flexibility with it, but I suppose it has been designed this way to ensure it fits other Little People sets and my daughter uses this in the house that she has from the same range.
In terms of what opens and closes, only the boot and the roof box on top of the car open and close - none of the doors do, so you put the figures into their seats through the windows. My daughter enjoys opening the boot and likes to put some of her animal figures from the same range into the boot.
For the price my sister paid, I think this is a good addition to my daughter;s set, and she does enjoy playing with it, and everyday since Christmas day she has had her Fisher Price LIttle People set out to play with including this car, so it was a good choice for her, and like other Fisher Price toys there is a quality and durability about this toy. I also like the fact that this is much more girly than some of the Little People toys that are on the current market.
Children will have endless fun opening and closing the doors on this pink SUV. There are 2 figures included in the set which you can place inside the car. The boot and luggage rack are both accessible, and if you press down on the mummy character when she's in the driver's seat, you'll hear fun sounds and a song. Includes 2x AA batteries
