Advantages: Loads of imaginative play for all your children.
Disadvantages: None that I can think of.
As some of you may know from reading my Argos op I love shopping in Argos and Index and am always asked by family members to provide a list of toys from these two catalogues an the Early Learning Centre as well for my children's birthdays and Christmas presents.
My daughter has recently turned 1 year old (DOB 22/08/00) and my Dad bought her, amongst other things this great Dolls house. The age group is actually from 18 months but I think she is quite advanced and having an older brother she will soon know exactly what to do with it!
In the last Argos catalogue it was £29.99 but in the latest one it had been reduced to £19.99. The catalogue description says
This magical house has fun sounds. A lullaby plays, a baby cries, says mama and giggles. The house can be played with open or closed and has lots of fun accessories. Complete with a family of three to move in. Folds neatly for storage with a handle for portability. Requires 3 x AAA batteries.
Now this playhouse may look like the ideal toy to give a toddler of 1 year plus but does she actually want to play with it? Yes is the answer to this and so does my son who will be three in October. He has the Fisher Price Play Family fun sounds Garage and the two can quite easily be played with together which is very nice for both my children.
The house actually has a kitchen and a main bedroom on one side with a lounge room, bathroom and attic/babies bedroom on the other. The furniture or accessories mentioned in the description above are a table and two chairs, a highchair, a pram, two beds and a swinging crib. It is the latter that makes all the sounds previously mentioned. It also has a front door and a kitchen or back door. The family consist of a dad with glasses and a mum with a ribbon in her hair and a cute little baby.
I can't wait for my children to go to bed as I love playing with this playhouse as I pack it away confession over. My children will not
let me anywhere near it during the day!
We were given a free video with this playhouse and it contains lots of animated little people which is what they call the figures that come with the playhouse and garage as well. This video is 25 minutes long and is called Fisher Price Play Family Volume 1 Big Discoveries. Callum and Lucy love this video but it does have a very annoying tune all the way through it.
I am sure that I have seen other play family accessories in Woolworths, like more of the figures and cars and I might be buying them as this toy is such a great hit!
If you do wish to see what this toy looks like or buy it you can turn to page 812 in the Argos catalogue and it is no longer in the Index Catalogue. The garage that I have also mentioned is also £19.99 and this is on the same page in Argos and on page 773 in Index.
