Encourage Imagination

It doesn’t matter what the day and which activities that day holds, my girls change clothes at least 5 times a day. I must really love doing laundry {insert sarcasm here}.

I suggest clothes for school, they come home and immediately get the dress-up clothes on. I have them get dressed again to head back to the school or for shopping and the second they walk in the door, the regular and apparently ‘boring’ clothes come off. Evening activities, much the same. You guessed it, before I’m even in the door behind them, dress-up clothes are back on. I’m pretty sure my kids crawl on the floor and meow more than they walk and talk.

In the Summer months, I’m more lax on their chosen attire, my girls are often seen walking the aisles in Walmart in dress-up. Little Sophia got a tool-belt early in the Summer and I swear she wore it for 3 weeks straight. Winter is more like the revolving change room, my need for them to be warm clashes with their need to always be in character. So, with the new season bring more laundry and more clothes scattered on floors.

I certainly do have girls with huge imaginations! 

Little People is the only brand that celebrates people, places and things through discoveries that spark little stories and big imaginations. In a past post I told you about the new Little People characters: Eddie, Mia, Sofie, Tessa and Koby. They each have their own characteristics, just like each kids that comes to adore playing with them.

The new Little People friends and their playsets of fun {Little People Happy Sounds Home Playset and the Little People Fun Sounds Farm Playset}, help to encourage imagination, allowing personalities to shine and imaginations to soar.

Little People Happy Sounds Home

  • The Happy Sounds Home is a great big toddler house that’s ideal for both sitting and standing play. Sung songs and sounds accompany the play with Mom, Dad & Baby throughout the house, with different tunes and sounds in day mode vs. night.
  • Open it and discover a whole house worth of spaces for play. The front door has a knocker and opens for in & out, and the front window has a shade that flips to show a sunny or rainy day.
  • The kitchen features a cooking-sounds stove, an opening refrigerator door plus a high chair for baby and a table with food
  • on it for family meals.
  • The living room phone rings and has seats, and a set of real stairs has fun sounds for going up or down. Upstairs is baby’s room with a bassinet with songs and a bathroom with sing along songs from the sink. The third floor is for mom and dad’s bed.
  • Outside there’s a garage space and a nice SUV for trips to town! Includes 2 fence pieces to join other toys that make up the
  • neighborhood.

Little People Fun Sounds Farm

  • The Little People Fun Sounds Farm brings imaginative play from the farm to toddlers. The tall barn and silo makes it easy for them to sit or stand to play.
  • Farmer Eddie and his animals provide lots of interesting things to do – there are doors that open and close with sing along songs and
  • fun animal sounds, a drop through silo & slide with funny sounds, a baler that tips up to deliver the hay into the top floor of the barn, a ‘clucking’ chicken on her nest and even fences to create a separate corral.
  • The barn doors, open with a ‘moo’ or a ‘neigh’ and songs that open a child’s imagination to life on the farm. It features upbeat day songs or slower night songs – just change the mode.
  • Includes Eddie, a horse, cow, sheep and the chicken in her nest, plus the hay bale and 4 great fence pieces to create a whole big corral for the animals! Storage is provided in the silo plus an on/off switch let’s mom guide the play.

Of course my girls can usually be found playing with the new Little People in costume attire. Planning parties, going on adventures, building forts and castles and of course, inviting all their Little People friends along to play with them. Not only do they get so totally involved in their story, but they must dress and and act the part as well. 

How about your little ones? Are they ALWAYS in character and imagining as well?

with being a Fisher-Price Play Ambassador {#FisherPriceMoms}. The opinions on this blog are my own.




  1. my girls used to put on plays for us expecially at christmas. also when they had sleep overs of the videos I have watched of them and laughed amazing imaginations.

  2. My grandkids love to use their imagination as did my own children. They love to play camping with just blankets and chairs to make the tent and flashlights and sleeping bags to sleep in. I think it is important that kids use their imagination and not always have structured play time.

  3. That reminds me of my daughter, always changing clothes, a family friend had sewn her a gorgeous pyjamas, it looked like a dress, she wore that thing daily, I would put it in the laundry basket and the next thing you knew she pulled it out and put it on..she wore that pyjama from 2 years of age till she was 8…I kid you not, I should look for pictures and post it on her facebook wall..lol

  4. I think there’s several Elmo tops that went through several rotations before reluctantly being handed into the wash…. thank goodness that phase!

  5. Sounds like our home my laundry basket is full of clean cloths because they put on one dress for half hour then change! After a few dresses then they become puppies and chase after all the animal in the little people zoo they adore so much! Imagination live on!

  6. Sweet pictures of your lovely girls!! My Mum bought Sara a FP tape recorder when she was little. I played tapes for her when she was in bed for the night…kept a few…The Secret Garden and Lullabies For Babies…classical music. Today she loves all music!

  7. My kids do constant costume changes, especially my daughter. The amount of laundry they end up generating is incredible, but they’re expressing themselves.

  8. There are many kids who lack imagination these days! Imagination is powerful and magical it’s important to foster this in children. It breeds creativity which is much needed for the future πŸ™‚

  9. Playing dress up is such a fun was to imagine and be creative. Also a good use for my older costume jewelry πŸ˜‰

  10. We had both the Little People Fun Sounds Farm and Home in our house, minus the sounds that are available now. I think it is even more important today to teach imaginative play as techi toys will soon become the majority of the focus in kids lives.

  11. My girls are a bit older than yours and they still change a dozen times a day!!! πŸ™‚

  12. Your girls are adorable. My granddaughter is not quite at that stage yet but I’m sure in no time she’ll be doing the same πŸ™‚

  13. oh yes. She has one heck of an imagination! It’s great πŸ™‚ I love the characters she comes up with

  14. Your girls are so cute. It is nice to see children using their imagination instead of just sitting watching tv and playing video games (even if it does mean a bit more laundry…lol)

  15. I’d love to see your girls in Walmart dressed up – a much nicer change from a few rude people I encountered there yesterday. My niece is in a fairy stage right now, and I love it! She’s going to be Tink for Halloween too!

  16. You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I
    find this matter to be really one thing which I believe
    I might never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge for
    me. I’m having a look ahead to your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of

  17. I love how creative they are! You did a fantastic job of fostering that in them πŸ™‚

  18. My kiddos love to “play pretend”… Some days they are building structures and cities by moving around cushions, furniture and covering things in blankets and sheets and other days they are dressing up to play doctor, astronaut or whatever else catches their imagination. I do agree, using their imagination is so important to a child’s mental, emotional and even physiological growth.

  19. My kids love their dress up clothes too and i love it! I have taken my kids to the movies as spiderman and a ballerina recently cause they are only little so long!

  20. My girls love dressing up as princesses or ponies or whatever it is at the moment. I love it!

  21. I remember a very different set of Little People toys when I was a child and I enjoyed them quite a lot….these new ones are quite adorable and I imagine most kids would love them as much as I loved the ones I played with in the 80’s.

  22. My girls all loved dressing up or down whenever they could. Imagination is such a key in our kids development.

  23. My girls LOVE changing clothes too, I had 4 of them!!! I love the little people collection, can’t wait to buy them for our new grandbaby.
