Regular readers will know how much Monkey and I love visiting Zoos and Wildlife Parks. It’s quite common that we return home with a new Schleich animal to add to our ever-growing collection. Monkey loves recreating our days out and having adventures. We’ve been having so much fun recently with the Wild Life Big Adventure at the Watering Hole Playset from Schleich. It’s really rather wonderful.
Monkey couldn’t wait to open the box and start playing. Aimed at children aged between 3-8 years of age, the set really fires the imagination. There is a small amount of assembly required but my assistant and I easily managed to put the set together in a matter of minutes (an instruction leaflet is also provided).
The Wild Life Big Adventure at the Watering Hole Playset from Schleich consists of three different sections: a watering hole, waterfall and river section. These can be placed together in two different ways to offer different layouts.
The playset and comes complete with a variety of plants, a tree which splits in two adding more fun play scenarios, a rock, outcrop and a burrow. There are eight animals included too – Lion and cub, Zebra, Chimpanzee, Flamingo, Millipede, Scorpion and a Black Mamba snake. The millipede can hide under a rock and the burrow is the perfect hideaway for the venomous snake.
Having bought Schleich animals for years, I already knew the quality of this set would be excellent. They make things to last and the set is well finished and the various animals are well detailed. The effect of the rippling river works so well, and it’s attracted a number of new visitors to the watering hole since its arrival. Monkey tells me that apparently an invitation to play has been sent to our herd of elephants but they’ll take a little longer to reach our savannah watering hole gathering.
We can’t wait for the rain here to stop long enough so we can play with the set in the garden to add another dimension to playtime. We might also use some of the game ideas included in the Educational Play the Schleich Way brochure, it’s full of inspiration.
Priced at £69.99 I can see the Wild Life Big Adventure at the Watering Hole Playset from Schleich being a big hit in homes this year. It’s certainly been a big hit here and I’m sure we will be adding to our animal collection when we go to Whipsnade Zoo soon!
