A couple of weeks ago, Netmums and Fisher Price asked us, if we wanted to take part in the new Fisher Price Little People…Big Discoveries campaign. It’s a lovely campaign that celebrates little ones’ discoveries and encourages imaginative play and adventures, so of course we got on board.
As part of the campaign, we received the Little People Disney Princess Palace for review. It’s suitable for children from 18 months to 5 years and retails at around £53. We often read traditional fairy tales like Cinderella or Snow White to Amy, so when I noticed that these two were part of the set, I knew that she would love playing with them.
As soon as the Little People Disney Princess Palace arrived, I spread out all the parts on the lawn (we were on the height of the heat wave) and started assembling it The setup is self-explanatory really, but I did struggle with two of the screws, so I had to get Ben to help me. They were quite fiddly, so it took him a while to get them into their slots, but otherwise it was a really build. I bet it took a bit longer to build the real deal. The only disappointment was that the box didn’t contain any batteries, so Amy couldn’t enjoy all features of the palace immediately.
Which features does the Little People Disney Princess Palace have?
The Little People Disney Princess Palace has some absolute adorable features that instantly grabbed Amy’s attention. There are six play areas within the palace: a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, balcony, attic, dressing room and a magical dance floor and Amy just loved acting out little scenes in each of the settings – including telling Snow White off for falling out of bed. Her favourite feature of the palace was the lift though. Poor Cinderella and Snow White must be feeling quite nauseous now considering how often Amy made them go up and down.
The really cool feature is a different one though. Little ones can place Cinderella and Snow White on special locations in the castle and hear them say their name, sing songs from their movies or different phrases. Amy really enjoyed finding out what happens in which location and made both princesses dance to their heart’s content.
We’ve had this set for about three weeks now and Amy has played a lot with it. She likes that she can discover something new every time she places the princesses somewhere in the castle and the friendly and colourful characters make this a really attractive toy for girls and boy. If you would like some close ups of it, check out our Facebook album featuring the Little People Disney Princess Song Palace. We’ve had a lot of fun with it and I am sure that Amy will enjoy this toy for many more months and years to come. It’s sturdy as well, so I don’t think you’ll have to worry about its longevity.
NetMums and Fisher-Price are also hosting a twitter party this Friday 2nd August between 11 and 12am so keep an eye out for that.
