“ Brand: World of Little People / Age: 12 months / Type: Playsets „
The World of Little People is a fantastic set of toys which will allow a child's imagination to take flight. They consist of exactly what they are called - Little People. The sets available range from a school bus to an aeroplane, from a theme park to a pirate ship.
My son has the World of Little People Deluxe Fun Park Playset and has had since he was 2. It is bright and colourful with lots going on. There is a roller coaster that the Little People can use, a ferris wheel and aeroplanes, a bit like the pink elephants at Chessington! All the pieces are large enough and easy enough to operate that little hands find it very easy to use. In order to make the ferris wheel go round you turn a handle. For the person on the roller coaster to take a ride you push down a character at the top. All simple things that teach a child cause and effect.
The rollercoaster is a bit tricky and my son has only recently mastered that at 3 years old - you have to place the car on the hook in the right way or it won't run down the track properly, and will leave the track before the loop the loop.
The loop the loop I find comes off a bit too easy which is good for packing away once play is over, but I find it comes apart sometimes during play which frustrates my son.
All in all I would say this is very good value for money and a must for any Little People fans.
These is really colourful and bright which entertains younger ones. the people are perfect size for small hands. My daughter has hours of fun with this watching the car go down the big drop and around the loop. Its not of the best quality like other little people toys. The loop is very bendy. The wheel and roundabout thing are not fixed in place and keep falling off / toppling which annoys my daughter. For some reason the people do not stay in palce on the wheel and they often fall out as the seats turn upside down. You have to put the stickers on yourself which is very fiddly trying to line them up perfectly in place. The rounabout also topples over. The car doesnt always go around the loop sometimes that too fall s down. But my daughter finds it fun which is the main thing and it gets plenty of play
The World of Little People is suitable for children aged 1 to 5yrs of both sexes and our grandson has quite a few of these sets including this Fun Park set. I think we paid £30 for this, the full price, but I've just looked it up on Toys R Us and find it's currently £19.99 in the sale so it's definetely one to consider for Christmas.
This playset hasn't been quite as durable as the others we've had from this range because there has been a breakage on this I'm afraid to report. Our grandson is a bit rough sometimes and it was a thin plastic bit on the carousel he snapped but I don't think this would be a problem for most people. The rest of the set has lasted well and this is a very small complaint considering how brilliantly this and all the other Little People sets have lasted over all.
I think what makes this set so appealing are all the bright colours and how fun it looks. Even if your child has never seen a theme park or a fairground, they will still love this toy I'm sure just like our grandson did. He is a particular fan of the chairoplane ride as he can sit a little person in each aeroplane and push the button on the top so it goes whizzing around! I should say though that our grandson couldn't manage this at first and it did take quite some practice for him to realise how hard he needed to push the button down.
The rollercoaster is a very fun bit and our grandson loves sending the little car whizzing down this. The only problem here is that it really is designed for the weight of the car and little person together so if you send it down without a little person on board, as our grandson frequently does, the car won't go as well and may whizz off the track.
All in all this is good fun and a brilliant price at the moment if you get it for £20. It isn't as durable as the other sets and it is more suitable for 2-5yr olds than 1-5yr olds in my opinion.
World of Little People Deluxe Fun Park Playset suitable for children aged 1 to 5 years. You can buy this from Toys "R" Us it is usually priced a t£29.99 but at the moment it is on sale for £19.99.
This fun fair toy is quite large toy and there are lots of things for your child to do on it. It comes complete with: A rollercoaster that goes into a loop-the -loop, a Ferris wheel, aeroplane ride, 3 people and 2 cars.
All the rides can detach from the main fairground base, but fit back in place easily. Now here's a little bit about the things that come with it:
The three people- It comes with a girl, boy and a clown. Underneath each figure is a small hole so they can fit on top of the cars and rides. It also comes with a red and blue car which have small handles on that you use to attach to the top of the rollercoaster.
The Ferris wheel- It has three separate seats that you can fit the little people onto. You then turn the handle on the side of the wheel and it makes the wheel go up and round.
The aeroplane ride- There are two aeroplane seats that you put the little people on, you then turn the handle on the top of the ride and the aeroplanes go round.
The rollercoaster- This is the largest bit of the fair, it goes in the middle of the other two rides. You put one of the cars at the top of the rollercoaster, and the little handle on the top of the car fit onto the top of the rollercoaster. You then press the button on the top of the rollercoaster down and it releases the car that then whizzes down the rollercoaster, and round the loop-the-loop. Then it shoots out through the tunnel and out the door that's at the end.
This toy fun fair will keep your child amused for hours. I think that a lot of detail has gone into the overall design of this toy. I think it is good how it makes your child get involved with the fair working and it helps them with there coordination skills, by having to turn the handles that make the rides go round.
When my girls play with this it sounds like they think there actually at the fair. As when the car whizzes down the rollercoaster they scream and start laughing. I don't mind this as least there enjoying them. So I think this is definitely a great buy.
Recreate all the fun of a real fun park without waiting in a lineup for the rides! Set includes: 3 Little People figures and 2 cars. From roller coaster rides to the ferris wheel. Send your car round and round.
