In the last 13 years of raising two kids, I’ve seen a lot of toys come and go. I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t. I’ve noticed how one child can love a particular toy and another never pick it up. I’ve seen what engages them and what doesn’t. And I’ve seen which toys that completely absorb them into a whole new world fostering excitement, imagination, and creativity.
My daughter loves tactile toys that provide a structure from which she can create stories and adventures of her very own. So I was excited to see her reaction to two new toys from Hasbro’s Littlest Pet Shop, the Littlest Pet Shop Pet Shop Playset, and the Littlest Pet Shop Pawristas Café Playset from the Littlest Pet Shop Pets in the City of playsets.
The Littlest Pet Shop Pet Shop Playset is for kids ages 4+ and retails for $29.99. It includes three pets and has room for a total of 30 pets (sold separately – check out the Littlest Pet Shop Singles Assortment). The set includes themed stickers, emoji bubbles, accessories and Deco Bits for completely customized play. The set is multi-level and includes a tube slide, hamster ball, and other fun playground activities.
The Littlest Pet Shop Pawristas Café Playset is also for kids ages 4+ and retails for $19.99. It includes two pets and 19 accessories and also includes themed stickers, an emoji bubble, and Deco Bits pieces.
I admit that one of the things that always scares me about toys like this is first, the struggle involved in getting them out of the box and second the effort it takes to putting them together and getting them to stay together. With these Littlest Pet Shop Playsets, my fears were unfounded. They were easy to remove from the packaging, and I was so happy to see how well the pieces fit and stayed together. It’s frustrating when a playset falls apart while you are using it and these assembled snugly and stayed that way.
While I took a few minutes to put the sets together, my daughter looked at all the available pets.
Once the playsets had been assembled, and the stickers placed where she wanted them, she set them up like a little streetscape and began to play. She already had a few Littlest Pet Shop pets, so they got to join in the fun. The sets don’t physically connect, but they flow together nicely.
There are very many cute and interactive items things in these playsets. My daughter especially loves the hanging accessories that came with the Pet Shop Playset.
The pets are cute and full of personality. Kids can’t help but want to pick them up and engage with them.
I enjoy listening to the stories she plays out and the little adventures she embarks upon through these adorable little critters.
Have you ever seen a child get their toys perfectly setup only to nudge it just slightly and it all comes toppling down? One of the things my daughter loves about the Littlest Pet Shop toys is that they stay put. Each pet has a small hole in the bottom and the playsets and accessories all have similar sized pegs so when she puts a pet somewhere; it doesn’t move unless she wants it to. I can’t tell you how much frustration she had had in the past with other toys falling just when she had finished setting it all up.
Such a cute set with lots of colors and details. The Deco Bits can be placed on the Pets or the emoji bubbles. Fun stuff!
The designers of this toy thought of everything with this set, putting pegs in all kinds of unique places for the pets to sit.
The accessories help add to the stories she creates and help bring them to life.
There isn’t a place the pets can’t perch!
Hours of fun!
I was impressed by these playsets, not only for the quality and design features but for the level of imaginative play they seem to provide. I have found that the adventures my daughter has with Littlest Pet Shop Playsets carry over into other toys. She picks up the storyline where she left off with her little pets. It’s great to see how it inspires her imagination beyond a specific playtime.
I know a few little girls who enjoy imaginative play just like my daughter who will probably be getting one of these Littlest Pet Shop Playsets for Christmas this year! I can’t wait to see them all playing together with these cute little pets.
