What our experts think
This open-ended small world play area is great for encouraging free, imaginative play – the superfood of a balanced play diet. We liked that the areas can be set up differently, allowing it to be multi-functional and empowering children to set it up how they like. Small world play is great as it allows children to develop their understanding of the world around them as they act out and make sense of different scenarios.
Our testers played alongside each other, listening to other’s opinions and sometimes elaborating each other’s play or just watching. This is fantastic for developing children’s listening and communicating skills at this age, as well as for encouraging turn-taking and sharing. Some of our testers even enjoyed separating different objects and toys into each section, showing excellent categorisation skills!
