Looking for the perfect holiday gift idea for your favorite animal-loving kid? Littlest Pet Shop has some pretty awesome playsets available this holiday season! They’re not only super cute and fun, but they really encourage your kids to use their imaginations and engage in creative playtime. I got to check out two great playsets: Littlest Pet Shop Pet Shop Playset and the Littlest Pet Shop Pawristas Café Playset. Both are absolutely adorable!
Inspiring Imaginations with Littlest Pet Shop
Our kids are growing up in such a high-tech world. At 11, the majority of my son’s wish list involves something that plugs into the wall and runs on wi-fi, whether it’s a video game or a gaming system itself. My niece and nephew, however, are still young enough to enjoy low-tech toys that run completely on imagination. Thanks to them, I get to have fun buying and gifting all the latest and greatest toys for at least a few more years. I tend to go a little overboard when I find something really awesome, like Littlest Pet Shop toys.
The Pet Shop Playset and Pawristas Cafe Playset offer hours of imaginative playtime fun. Kids can dive right into the excitement after mom sets it up. Since the toys are completely open-ended, every aspect of playtime is driven solely by your child’s imagination. They can create a world all of their own, complete with their own rules and stories. I think this is incredibly important for young children, as they not only get to express their creativity but also work through things that may be on their minds through the scenarios they create. If you ever need some insight into what your child is thinking, watch and listen when they play with their toys.
Littlest Pet Shop Pet Shop Playset
This playset retails for an MSRP of $29.99 and comes with everything your child needs to get started with her own Littlest Pet Shop world. With enough space to hold up to a whopping 30 pets, the multi-level shop is the ultimate starter playset.
Your child’s “pets” can have a blast on the rooftop playground before sliding down the tube slide to the second floor and taking a spin in the hamster ball ride or a swing in the dog house.
Then head down to the main floor to hang out on the sidewalk with friends. There is a cute little bird swing and cage for your feathered friends and plenty of other places for pets to perch and relax.
This set comes with all sorts of fun themed accessories, stickers, thought bubbles and more. It also comes with a premium glitter pet and two other pet friends.
My own “Little Pet” decided to make an appearance! Maybe she thinks these are friends for her? As you can tell, she kind of Godzilla-ed the cafe a bit!
Littlest Pet Shop Pawristas Cafe Playset
All pets need a fun place to hang out, right? The ‘Pawrista’ is definitely that place! Cool Cats (and dogs, hamsters, etc) will love singing on the stage, eating up tasty treats and just chilling with their furry friends. This playset comes with one pet, one pet friend and a ton of themed accessories. It also includes Deco Bits and a sticker sheet for customizing the thought bubble.
Your favorite Littlest Pet will love relaxing out front on the comfy chair, drinking milkshakes or coffee and chatting with other Pets. The tiny food is absolutely adorable. I suggest keeping the baggie that came with the setup so you don’t lose the itty bitty pieces, though.
Both sets work with all the other Littlest Pet Shop pets and accessories. Expand your child’s collection with Littlest Pet Shop Singles. At $2.99 each, they’re perfect stocking stuffers! Visit Littlest Pet Shop on Instagram for more fun creative play ideas.
