When I was a child, I LOVED to play school with my dolls and stuffed toys. I’d line them up, read them stories, give them assignments, and grade their papers. It was one of my favorite things to play, and may have had a hand in my choosing to become a teacher!
A few months ago, my 8 year old daughter started to verbalize an interest in becoming a teacher. I’ve seen pretend papers and notes scattered about her room, showing signs that she too, enjoys playing school with her toys. When I saw the “Let’s Play School” play set from Lakeshore Learning, I knew my daughter was going to LOVE it!
The Let’s Play School Set retails for $49.99 and includes everything shown here. This set comes with everything your child needs to set up his/her own classroom. From name cards and spelling tests, to a real bell and whistle, to a prize box filled with small toys, this set is the ultimate in pretend play. I am amazed by the amount of detail in this play set. Nothing was spared. Your child will have hours of fun pretending to be the teacher.
This type of pretend play inspires creativity, hands-on play, and imagination. This set also reinforces that school and learning are FUN! As a parent and former educator, I want my children (and all children) to become life-long learners who embrace education. The Let’s Play School Set will allow your child to re-teach what he/she is learning at school to their toys (reinforcing the lesson in their own mind at the same time!)
My children were fascinated with this set and wanted to play with each and every piece. They were so delighted to see so many familiar items and objects. “This is just like my teacher has!” “We have a flag in my classroom!” “I’ve always wanted my own chalkboard!” Within minutes, several dolls were learning about multiplication, mealworms, and getting ready for a story. =) I absolutely loved watching their imaginations come to life as they played school with their toys. Learning and play all rolled into one incredible play experience.
This set would make an ideal gift for the holidays.
