I have been a fan of Little Tikes toys for a long time, 17 years to be exact.I received a pink little tikes rocking chair and matching toy box as a shower gift for my now 17 year old daughter. It lasted until she outgrew it and we passed it on to friends where it also lasted until their daughter out grew it. Little Tikes are known for their durable, imaginative and active toys. The cozy coupe cars and playhouses have been around for what seems like ever and they continue to create new products which are sure to be favorites.
We were given the chance to test out one of Little Tikes newest products, TikeStix Playhouse, and it is even better than I imagined it would be. The TikeStix Playhouse set includes 41 giant interlocking sturdy plastic pieces which can be used to create a playhouse (large enough to fit inside), a baby doll crib, a table or whatever your childs’ creative little minds decide to build. The Stix can be used indoors or out and can be combined with other TikeStix Playsets. My four year old, Adeline, loves building. She makes entire towns with her smaller blocks for her toys to play in. So when she saw this box (which was the same size as her) arrive we HAD to open it right away. We decided to build the Playhouse. I looked at the included directions and we got started. It was easier for Adeline to look at the image on the front of the box to see what we needed. She counted out the pink pieces, purple pieces, green pieces and blue pieces on the front of the box. She then handed me the pieces needed for each task. I loved that fact that I was able to incorporate some math into our playtime.
We assembled each side, then the back and front. Using the included fabric and clips we put the roof on and Adeline couldn’t have been happier with her new playhouse. She brought in a blanket (as a rug) and gathered her friends (stuffed animals) to join her in her new home. She even had her snack in there.
Next we followed the directions to build a petting zoo. Adeline had lots of fun gathering her pets and adding them to the zoo.
The TikeStix play sets can be used indoors or outdoors and are sure to provide your child hours of entertainment. Adeline has enjoyed playing with the TikeStix with me and without me. By using her imagination she has come up with some fun creations on her own, too!
