I haven't written about anything Very Hungry Caterpillar for (what feels like) a-g-e-s!
I love him! He's just properly awesome. AS is anything that vaguely resembles Fuzzy Felt - you have to be of a certain age (mine!) to know furry felt shapes that stick to a board by the name Fuzzy Felt.
Whichever name it comes under now, the principle is still the same: you can create as many different furry felt scenes as your imagination will allow, on a special background board. Simple as that.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Colourfelt Play Board board measures 37 x 31 and then you have 31 different VHC shapes to stick to it.
I love the simplicity if toys like this; I love that you don't need to spend a fortune on batteries, and I love that it's completely silent - no bells, no whistles, no rings, no dings, no buzzing, no 'fun tunes', no NOTHING. Just good old fashioned fun that comes from within.
I'm not the only one who thinks it's great:
My granddaughter, who is 2, loves this, it is educational as well as fun. She learns about fruit, colours and counting as well as recognising the different stages of the caterpillar and all the food he has eaten. Reading the story once is never enough for her, she wants it again and again.
I bought this as a gift for a 3 year old girl, and was not disappointed. It is really good value for money. We are very fond of the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and this is the first spin off product we've purchased. Our daughter can re-tell the story using the felt pieces or modify the tale into her own special message of eating and waiting. We even use it to help reinforce counting, colours and Day and Night etc., so I find it very useful educationally. It's bigger than I expected (should have read the product dimensions more carefully!). I wholeheartedly recommend it.
In fact, it doesn't have any less than enthusiastic reviews at all!
