Now for the good - Little People. Yes, they are plastic and probably leach BPA or some para-something into my kids, but the toys are sturdy, interesting, and have open-ended play. I introduced June to Little People recently. I started out with the farm and showed her how to put the animals into the silo and then retrieve them.
The set-up. I showed her the animals, the silo, and how to put them in. The basket lasted a few seconds and ended up across the room.
It goes in.
|It took a few tries to get the animal in.|
It comes out.
June came back to this activity a few times and each time she was a little better at putting the animals in the silo.
