**I received Antsy Pants Build & Play Vehicle for review. All opinions are my honest thoughts.**
After having 3 girls, when we had a boy last we didn’t have very many “boy toys”. He got stuck playing whatever his older sisters wanted to play, which usually involved some sort of house and servitude type games. The last couple years my sweet boy has discovered more of his preferred types of playing involve big machines.
Trucks, cars, fire engines, and diggers. He begs his sisters to play these games with him. Sadly they aren’t always as willing to play what he wants as he was willing to play with them. When I saw these cool Build & Play Kits from Antsy Pants I knew they would be a hit with my vehicle loving son. I wanted to give him something that could bring his passions a little closer to life.
What I did not expect was for my girls to love it just as much as him. Suddenly his sisters want to play construction and cars with him. The Build & Play Kit is large enough that they can all enjoy it without feeling too crowded. Even the neighbor kids love coming over to play inside our digger – and they are also a family of girls.
Putting the kit together was easy enough. I whipped out the instructions, and in true manly fashion, my son disregarded them and just started building it. I pulled his attention back to the instruction booklet, and together we snapped the bars together and attached the digger cover. We had a bit of help from his little friend, and then they were off taking turns driving.
While we love the digger, we’ve been excitedly checking out all the different covers! I love that we can use the same connecting bars to build a new toy and just change up the cover. I have a feeling the pirate ship may find it’s way under our Christmas Tree this year, and perhaps even the Lemonade Stand.
