There are about 44 detailed play figures, with 12 storage layers. The child has to sort out each pair of animal, and this is the best part… I saw emus and kangaroos, which I would think Aussie kids would be quick to point out! If a younger child (3 -4 years of age) were to play with it, they’d have to realise that each storage layers has to be in sequence, or they won’t fit as an ark. Which was a pretty neat idea, as this teaches them the concept of small to big. Kids from 6 onwards will like it as the story of Noah’s Ark comes to life for them.
Personally, I liked it because the lil plastic pieces are not strewn everywhere..and the boys do make it a habit of putting each and every lil figurine in, stacking them neatly and leaving it as an Ark. I just have to remember that I can’t let my 19month old anywhere near it, as he will start throwing them everywhere. Or thinking they were edible.
Remember this folks, it’s only meant for kids 3 years and above. There are many lil pieces that are a choking hazard. Each lil figurine is pretty hardy, and I can’t see any of them losing a limb or two. The child is to fit each figurine into its matching shape, and then stack them accordingly. These are all made in Australia, and since it’s introduction in March 2009, it has already won 10 awards!
