The set includes everything needed to set up a play area: flowerpot cottage with opening doors and terrace, tray, cottage furniture, rooftop trim, toadstool, Freya the fairy, her chipmunk friend HAzel, and gardening accessories and tools. Also included are soil and quick-germinating seeds to get your garden started! Children can add other flowers or plants if they want, too! It’s a fun growing and play set! Why we like it: Great way to incorporate nature into play. Children have the opportunity to plant real seeds in real dirt, getting their hands dirty. They also learn empathy while taking care of their garden, watering it and making sure it has enough sunlight. The wire holder bends and moves around connected to the fairy in a way that makes it look like the fairy is actually flying and floating around. The “watering mushroom” is a very cute and creative way to spread water to the plants! This product is innovative in the way it combines nature play with pretend play.
