Fun, multi-functional, and sturdy
on April 29, 2016
I bought these for my 3 year old daughter for Christmas. She absolutely loved them! They are exactly as shown in the picture, however they are not as shiny as the picture portrays, which is good. These cute gingerbread men and ladies are made of a high quality plastic that is not absolutely hard, but is not too soft. They scream quality and after 4 months of play still look brand new. I intend on keeping these for future grandkids.
The plastic had no odor whatsoever. Most of the time plastic toys will smell of plastic, but these had no scent. My daughter enjoys counting them, sorting them (boys and girls, similar colors, etc.) and baking them in her play kitchen. She serves these to us for dessert throughout the day. I also bought her the Learning Resources Smart Snacks Trail Mix and these gingerbread men work great with it. The trail mix has holes in it so it can be threaded onto a string. These gingerbread men each have a hole in their hand that my daughter threads the trail mix string through.
These gingerbread men and ladies all snap together as shown in the picture. However, my daughter is unable to snap them together by herself as it is too hard. When she is determined to snap them together, she will lay them on the hard floor and use something hard and heavy to press their hands enough to snap together. The little gingerbread have so many other uses though that the difficulty snapping them together does not bother us at all. An older child of 5 + could easily snap them together.
This is an extremely cute toy with so many different uses for play. I highly recommend this as they are not only fun, but I do not think it is possible for any child to damage these high quality, sturdy gingerbreadies.
