Our friends at Playmobil recently sent our four year old friend William an Egyptian Chariot. We asked William what he thought, and as ever we love his stories!
“I love the man. He is a great racer. The horses are beautiful and I like putting their things on. We MUST buy some more chariots so we can have lots and lots of races. The man is making sure the bad people behave. He has an arrow and a dagger. Come on lets play now.”
And a bit from mum…
– opened immediately
– initially thought is was something to do with Robin Hood (bow and arrows) so we visited the library to find information on the Egyptians to put it into context.
– William enjoyed taking it all apart and remaking it
– we are having regular chariot races, improvising with cars etc.
– it has been a great introduction to this historic period
So if the proof was ever in the pudding (what did the Egyptians eat?), then this is it. If you’re looking for a sure fire (ha!) hit then this could be it!
The Egyptian Chariot was kindly sent to us by Playmobil. We stick to the bloggers with integrity code to only promote products that we truly, truly love.
