Imagination and discovery has a positive impact on our children's growing minds. I remember when I was growing up, I always played with my cousins and brothers imagining that we were out at sea or selling food in a market or being a teacher in a classroom. I am sure these fond memories helped us grow. Now as a parent, I love watching my children learn through play. It is fun to watch them imagine that they are firefighters and run around the house, be explorers and find bugs in the garden, help me garden and act as though they are farmers and then sell the produce from the garden like there is a market, make cupcakes like they are bakers with their toys and always try to save the day as heroes.
Fisher-Price has released five new Little People® characters Eddie, Mia, Sofie, Tessa and Koby that add to our children's imaginary stories. Fisher-Price’s Little People® celebrate people, places and things through discoveries that spark little stories and big imaginations. They work to empower the developing child toward greater self-directed play. When my children play with the Little People® characters, I see them mostly associating the characters with family members and friends. These characters add lots of fun and dialogue to their play.
After I read about the Little People® characters, my children remind me of a few characters put together. My son reminds me of Koby because of his love for dinosaurs and Eddie when he plays. My daughter reminds me of Tessa who likes to twirl, take care of animals and come up with ideas. She also reminds me of Sofie because she enjoys drawing.
The first thing my children did when they saw the Little People® characters, was to give them names and then they played house. When my son was playing, I asked him if I can join the Little People® and play inside the house he had built. Kids say the funniest things :) his response was, "For sure, but first we have to build a shrinking machine so you can fit in and play."
