Little People, big imaginations #FPLittlePeople

I absolutely love hearing what my kids come up with when they play. They make up scenarios for their toys, be it race cars, babies, animals, or even made up friends. Often their toys go to McDonald's or the library and order food or read books to each other. Their cars race each other and their babies need to nap.  

Little J, being the older one, comes up with more fantastic situations than Little K does, and I'm always amazed at how well she goes along with his ideas. There are usually bad guys to fight and some big to do and Little K will happily oblige her brother and play well within his make believe world. 

Fisher-Price has just released 5 new Little People and we got the chance to test them out. Well, mostly. The package we were sent included 6 Little People but only 4 of the characters. We've had a lot of Eddie and Eddie games and the poor Sofies got tossed in the toy bin. It's safe to say that Little J really likes Eddie and Little K likes Mia and Tessa.

Each character has their own story which I've read to the kids. Eddie likes to play sports while Tessa likes to twirl. Mia collects things and Koby is always clowning around. Sofie is curious and loves to colour. Beyond their names, the kids can't remember their quirks, but that doesn't stop them from playing. Eddie might like to play sports, but according to Little J, he also likes to play hide and seek and both Eddies are often covered in other toys and "hiding". Little K carries around Mia and Tessa and has them play all sorts of games.

The good thing about the new Little People is that every kid can identify with each one. Don't all kids get excited about kicking a ball around? About colouring? Maybe not every day, but they do. And collecting things and dancing and asking why? Why! Sporty, sweet, curious, silly, friendly - characteristics that all kids share.

You can learn more about the new Little People on the Fisher-Price website and while you're there be sure to check out the Little People, Big Discoveries contest where you can win a $265 Little People prize pack. That would make a great Christmas gift!

My kids love playing with their Little People, the characters and the playsets. These are great toys.
