== Rosebud House Perfect Pets ==
Rosebud House is a range of wooden dolls houses and accessories from the Early Learning Centre (E.L.C) The E.LC. is a high street and online store , they also sell their products through Mothercare and Boots . They specialize in children's toys that are suitable from birth up to the age of 7 or 8 .
I bought this set for my daughter at the same time as the rosebud dolls house and some furniture sets. As the house comes empty I wanted a few things to start her off, and I picked this one as it was one of the cheapest at the R.R.P of £8 but at the time there was 20% off , £6.40 what a bargain.
== The Pets ==
The pets come in a nice strong cardboard box and have minimal packaging inside .
Inside you will find 8 small wooden items and a material bed .
== The dog ==
He has a wooden head, body and paws, with a thick stiff string attaching the paws to the body. He has eyes and a nose painted on his face, felt ears and comes with a dog lead [ brown string] around his neck. He will stand up independently .
== The cat ==
He has a wooden head and body with a flat bottom, he has a painted face and felt ears and a brown string tail.
== The rabbit ==
He has a wooden head, body with a flat bottom, and a cute little wooden tail, he has a painted on face and felt ears like the others.
== The kennel ==
Is a solid wood white kennel with pink roof it is 7 1/2 cms high at the highest point , 5 cms wide and has a depth of 5 cms . The dog does fit in with a bit of a wriggle.
== The rabbit hutch==
The hutch is 6 cms wide, 4 1/2 cms high with a depth of 4 cms . It is in white wood with a pink door , 2 sides are bars so you can see in . The rabbit fits perfectly inside .
There is also a cat basket made of material which again is a perfect fit for the cat .
A pink wooden cat bowl with 2 small holes. A brown dog bowl complete with tiny wooden dog bone. This is really small and you would want to remove it from a younger child.
== In play ==
My daughters dolls house was bought for her 2nd birthday and at 1st she wasn't that interested , that was probably down to me being desperate to buy it and give it to her, when she was too young to really appreciate it . Since the age of 4 it has been played with every day , it's the first thing she does when she wakes up . She loves imaginative play , creating stories and acting them out with the toys and doing the voices, she has a great imagination and the pets have been a nice addition to her playing out these stories and to the dolls house itself.
They often get played with on their own or with other toys . I quite often find a Lalaloopsy pet borrowing the cat basket or sneaking in with the rabbit .
Quality i can not fault , looking at them now there is no damage whatsoever , none of the paintwork is chipped, and nothing has broken [ shame I can't say the same about the house ] We have owned this for nearly 4 years now and its been played with for nearly 2 .
I do expect a certain quality to wooden toys and from toys from the E.L.C. and these do not disappoint .
