Three Little Pigs Play Set

“This three little pigs play set really brings the story to life. Little S particularly enjoys acting out the part where the wolf goes down the chimney into the boiling water, although I’m not sure that’s a good thing!”

bright minds three little pigsInitial thoughts: Little S and Baby B were eager to get the Three Little Pigs play set out of the box, which I’m happy to say, was easy to do as there was minimal
packaging. The set comes with three differently coloured fabric nestling houses (of straw, sticks and bricks!), three matching little pigs, a wolf and story sheet. It is suitable from 18 months upwards.

We liked: The Three Little Pigs is one of my son’s favourite stories so he was immediately taken with this set. Both the children enjoyed helping me act out the story. The houses are washable and the figures are wipe clean so will hopefully withstand Marmite fingers.  I liked that the houses and pigs are numbered and colour coordinated, extending the play opportunities.

We weren’t keen: The set is comprehensive and there is a story sheet, but for £30 I would have liked to see it in book form, rather than on a sheet of paper that will probably get lost or torn. The pigs are supposed to squeak but making them do so
wasn’t easy, especially for the children.

Overall: I love the way this set brings the story to life. On more than one occasion I’ve seen Little S acting out the story on his own. He particularly enjoys saying, ‘chinny, chin, chin’ and acting out the part where the wolf goes down the chimney into the boiling water, although I’m not sure if that’s a good thing! My children have already had lots of enjoyment out of this toy. It would make a lovely gift for young
children but consider buying a proper book to go with it.
