I voted for fagus, but it has a lot to do with my personality. I think she would love the plan set. I think you just need to use your own judgment on whether or not it would be a choking hazard for your child. There have been a couple of times I got something for DD that I ended up putting up for piece of mind. She never put things in her mouth (except for crayons,) but she plays by herself unsupervised a lot.
DD has the fagus unimog
and we all love it. They are so well made (DD can use it as a roller skate), and you can feel realy good buying them. They are made in germany and adults with special needs help make them.
DD puts her many sets
of haba blocks
in it, gives her Holztiger
wooden animals rides around the family room. She does have a nice set of Playmobil 123 figures
she uses as people (we never used the things that came with the truck as people. they were too small IMO). They are also really nice and on the cheaper side. She used to give her Tolo People
rides, too, but I am afraid she thinks they are a little babyish right now. She will also just throw her pegs
in from another toy.
She does have a small animal train
and a couple of tracks and like I said the Playmobile 123 set, but other than that, I try to avoid sets and encourage puting everything together creatively.
I am already thinking about christmas, too. As far as toys, I think we are going to add a lot from the NIC creamobil line. I want to get a couple sets of these modular houses
along with the terrace
and these people
, and this wooden minivan
. That is kind of looking like a set right there, but I am really smitten.
