Fuzzikins Craft Cottontail Cottage from Interplay offers hours of fun and creativity. The set includes two Fuzzikins bunny figures (one large and one small) and a pop-up book which folds out to reveal the 3-D Cottontail Cottage, with 3 play areas and built-in furniture. There is also a plastic garden fence as well as 3 felt tip pens and stickers which you can colour in and use to decorate the cottage. At any time of the year cute bunnies and small world play are great fun and our Fuzzikins Cottontail Cottage playset has been played with for hours.
Once we had our designs on paper we coloured in the Fuzzikins bunnies. The bunnies are made of a furry plastic material and you simply colour the bunnies in with the felt tip pens. The choice of pink, grey and brown gives you plenty of options to create different designs. Once you finish colouring the bunnies then leave them to dry before playing with them near soft furnishings or fabric. The felt tip is washable so the colour will run, or wash off, if you get your Fuzzikins bunnies wet.
The play set comes with a Pop Up Book which turns into a 3D playhouse for the two bunnies. The book opens out to reveal a garden, kitchen/diner and bedroom, a playroom and bathroom. There are also two pages of stickers to colour in and decorate the house. This meant even more colouring in and time decorating the house. There is a lot of creative play in the set, as you are able to decorate the bunnies and then decorate the stickers for the house and spend time choosing where to add your stickers. It would have been nice to have some other felt tip colours and we used felt tips that we already had at home to decorate the sticker sets.
The Pop Up Book is a cute idea for small world play. All the furniture is built-in and there is a cooker, dining table, stairs, bunk beds, play-tent, sofa, sink and bath as well as a fence for the garden, which attaches to the book with clips that slot onto the book. The pop-up even has little doors that the bunnies can hop through. As there are so many different areas our imagination has run wild creating stories, imaginings and scenarios. We found this was a great set to play with whilst little Cub was having a nap, as it is a relatively quiet play set and The Wild One can enjoy it in peace without Cub terrorising the place!
The sets are aimed at children aged 5 years old + and make a great gift that inspires creativity and imaginative play. We have really enjoyed playing with this set and would recommend it if your child loves small world play. The Fuzzikins Craft Cottontail Cottage retails at £19.99, which is a fair price given that you it includes two Fuzzikins bunnies and the pop-up playhouse along with all the stickers to accessorise the house. The set folds neatly away when it isn’t being played with and is easily stored on a bookcase, so it is easy to get out the next time The Wild One wants to play with it.
