Large Animal Habaland set - Review

These days finding lasting quality childrens toys is a bit of a test.  We recently bought a wooden playhouse from a well known High Street retailer for it to fall apart within a month and it was only played with by a 1 year old!

The large Animal Habaland set is made of high quality wood and consists of 21 pieces.  Included in the 21 pieces are 6 animals figures (height of figures approx 8 cm) and 15 wooden shapes that can be connected to form flowers and a tree.  The pieces are lovely and bright and can be interchanged to make a variety of different combinations and each are made of beechwood

The pieces themselves are a perfect size for little hands and are suitable from 1 years and over. I thought Little Man may struggle to get the wooden dowels to fit into the square blocks because of his dexterity at 22 months but I was very wrong and he was soon building and creating his own shapes.

The faces on the animals are very sweet and includes a sheep, frog, mouse, rabbit, horse and a cow - he happily played for ages with the set.

The large animal playset compliments many of the other HABA sets available so your child can create larger sets.

In my opinion the set was great for hand/eye co-ordination skills, discovery and imaginary play and I really liked that it can be added to others in the range.

Sturdy and of good quality, I can imagine this set lasting for a considerable time and through many hours of play.
