“The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.” – Calvin Trillin
Let’s face it, as a mom you have to find your sense of humor. For every toy you step on, mess you clean up, dinner that no one eats, penny you have to pinch, you have to laugh about it before you lose your mind. One of my biggest pet peeves as a mom is the pigsty in my car. There is every kind of toy littering my backseat and making it nearly impossible to allow anyone other than my son to sit back there. Anytime I take my him anywhere, he insists upon bringing a barrage of toys. Somehow, they don’t ever seem to make it out of the backseat. That is why I love PlaymobilⓇ and their take along toys. The PlaymobilⓇ My Take Along Farm is the perfect example of the fun and imaginative toys that can be folded up and taken anywhere…and easily carried right back in the house.
Specifically designed for children 18 months and up, the farm comes with animals and accessories to maintain the farm. All of the pieces are made from colorful and durable materials that are easy to hold for little hands and easy to clean. Teach your child about barnyard animals and even shapes with this great set. Inside the barn is an area for kids to learn as they play. Holes in the barn allow little hands to test out which pieces fit into each hole and gives them an introduction to shapes.
It encourages creative play, but the best part is that all of the pieces can be stored in the barn. Then, their is an easy to carry handle which allows your little one to take it wherever you go without worrying about losing all of those pieces. When I am juggling house keys, grocery bags, and my two year old, he can use the handle to carry his farm inside. Now, if I only I could get him to carry his dirty clothes to the laundry room.
Toys like this are also a great way to teach kids to pick up after themselves. They learn that taking care of their toys and putting them away is much better than losing them. The barn easily fits all of the pieces which also helps avoid the dreaded stepping on of toys which is why every parent has those tough feet that could walk across hot coals. It helps us keep all of those pieces in one spot instead of being strew around the house or of course, my car.
PlaymobilⓇ creates toys that teach and grow with our kids. Their durable materials and detailed pieces keep kids entertained for years to come. If you are looking for something your little will enjoy, and that they can take with them on the go, the PlaymobilⓇ My Take Along Farm is a perfect option.
