In how many soft toy stores can you find slow lorises, aya-ayas, armadillos, bald eagles, anteaters, lamas, tapirs and squirrels? My Favourite Animals has a fascinating amount of life like animal soft toys of the more unusual kind.
I’m a big fan of toys with realistic details. As a kid I loved when I could see the same details in my toys as the ones I could see in nature programs on TV. Animal Planet and Discovery gives children an opportunity to learn a lot about nature and animals, as there are more and more programs made for kids, and I would think that along with the increase in knowledge about the animals comes an increase in expectations towards toys. Many nature-loving children will appreciate the opportunity to choose toys with realistic details. I know I would have! My Favourite Animal has a great selection of these kinds of soft toys, and that’s why I think its such a great web store.
To give a soft toy with lots of identity provides the children an opportunity to learn and to use the knowledge about the particular species of their toy in play. Instead of giving a Teddy Bear, which has very little identity before the child gives it one, one could for instance give the kid a spectacle bear or an ice bear, for which there is much information available. The available information can create a great base for realistic play, and learning.
Besides the soft toys My Favourite Animals also has a small selection of hand puppets. My favourites are the Macaw Hand Puppets, how cute and full of realistic details! The Macaw Hand Puppets comes in two assorted colors and costs 6.50 GBP.
