These little figures are beloved by my 2.5 year old, as well as our neighbors age 14 months, 2 years, 3.5 years, and 5 years. They are fun for imaginative play, building, color sorting, sensory trays, and look cute on a shelf in-between play.
Talk about open ended! My kids play with these as people, trees, drinks, almost anything. They were a wonderful addition to our home, we even use them for homework.
We purchased these for our toddler for Easter and so far it is love. I specifically bought these because the open endedness of these ones appealed to me so much more than the peg people. The can be gnomes, trees, mountains, food, etc. I'm always amazing at her imagination with these during her play.
