For our first review of 2015 we’ve been having great fun over the holidays with the Magnetic Mix and Match Jungle Changing Room set from Meadow Kids. We love the Meadow Kids range of products for youngsters and reviewed regularly for them in 2014.
The Magnetic Mix and Match Jungle Changing Room comes in a great storage case and is aimed at children aged 3 years and over.
The set comes with 38 magnetic play pieces that make up animals and you can dress them in fun accessories.
The pieces are nice and thick so easy for little hands to pick and place. There’s a little leaflet so younger children can identify the correct pieces to create each animal. Although I can see lots of fun being had making mix and match animals. The set is bright and engaging and helps with imaginative play and encourages problem solving skills.
Monkey’s had lots of fun with this set and liked putting the animals together and giving them funky hats and shoes. He did get a bit frustrated that you couldn’t stick the accessories on top of the animals themselves – he would have liked the zebra to actually look as if he was wearing the hat properly. I’m guessing younger children probably wouldn’t be so bothered with this aspect though.
The Magnetic Mix and Match Jungle Changing Room is the sort of set that is great for car journeys and plane flights. We already have a similar set that has travelled with us before. So it will be great for Monkey to have some more choice to keep him occupied on long journeys. The quality is really good, so I know it’s a set which will last lots of play time.
The set is available for Amazon, normally retailing at £14.99, it’s currently on special offer as you can see from my affiliate link below.
