I received figurines in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
We travel back and forth between Arizona and Utah a lot, and the drive is so boring. One thing we like to do is wrap up little surprises for our kids and as they are being good along the way we let them open a little surprise. They are usually just dollar store trinkets.
On one such trip I passed my son back a dollar store pack of little animal figurines. I would have never guessed they would be such a huge hit! They got played with so much. However, you typically get what you pay for and after a few weeks they had pretty much had it. They were flimsy and not great quality.
Knowing how much my kids loved them, I went in search of new figurines that would wear well and be around for years of creative, imaginative play, and found Safari Ltd.
Safari Ltd. is home to a variety of collections of individually hand painted miniature replicas featuring vibrant colors, fine, professional sculpting, and accurate detail. You can by their figurines in a variety of sizes, individually or in a TOOB collection.
TOOBS are available in dozens of themes, and each set comes in a reusable tube that snaps open and closed for easy storage. The tube also has a spinning globe on its cap. TOOBS® are perfect for educational projects, traveling, collecting, and imaginative play.
We have several individual figurines as well as a few TOOBS at our home. My kids love to dump them all out and play with them over and over again. They are high quality and will last forever! Each one is so detailed and perfectly painted, my kids just love to look at them and talk about the animals or play games with them. Just last week we were up at the Grand Canyon and just had to come home with the Steam Train TOOB to remember our trip by! It is so cute and the cars even all hook together!
Stop by Safari Ltd. and grab some awesome figurines your kids will just love! Nothing better than a toy that stimulates and encourages imaginative play. Plus, they are perfect stocking stuffers! Safari Ltd. Figurines can be bought on their website or on Amazon. Prices vary.
