I love toys and games where the children have to use their imaginations, be creative – where anything is possible. So when we were asked to review the Pretend & Play Vet Playset, we jumped at the chance. We have spent a lot of time in the vets over the years with Snoopy, so it was fun to hear their impressions of it, in their own way.
We took the vet hospital to Great Grandmas and she enjoyed playing with the children too. Isla and Noah were both vets, in their surgery, Great Grandma took in her poorly dog. They said the dog had a broken leg and an ear infection. It made us both laugh. They sat and played with the set for a long time, I was surprised at how long it kept them quiet. Also, they both had things to do and therefore there was no arguing. Which is amazing!
This playset is a lot of fun. The children gave it a thumbs up and we now have a big queue of lots of soft toys that need checking up. They are going to be busy all half term!
What comes in the vet hospital box?
There is a foldable vets room, which is made from a flexible material. Stethoscope, Syringe, Thermometer, Eight medicine & pet cards, Ear/nose/mouth scope, Bandage, Head collar (the cone of shame), patient charts that you can write on and wipe off, Two double-sided x-rays with film – they show a hidden image when you move the film and of course a poorly puppy!
You can grab your very own set for £40.00 from Learning Resources.
What toys do your children use when playing imaginative games? Do they have a favourite? I would love to know about it in the comments below, or on social media: @mummyconstant.
