What our experts think
A fabulous play set with lots of details to encourage and develop imaginative play. It was lovely watching our testers share their real life shopping experiences as they played with the set. This kind of real world play allows children to make sense of the world around them, developing personal, social and emotional skills. There was lots of oral storytelling (involving some great voices!) which promotes creativity and provides the opportunity to develop related vocabulary.
The children were able to build the set (the younger ones needed a little assistance) in about half an hour, with all the pieces robust and fitting together well. The part our testers enjoyed most was setting up the shops themselves and placing all the little items where they wanted them. They also enjoyed using the box as a point of reference for where pieces should go, with demonstrates skills in following instructions. The different accessories provided scope for discussion, which encouraged children to further their knowledge and understanding of real world concepts.
