Felt Play Set - Betty Lukens - Review

One of the most vivid and cherished memories I have of Sunday school is the felt board stories. A felt board can help characters come alive to children. Betty Lukens makes some of the most beautiful felt board sets I've ever seen. From the "Fun in the Sun" beach scene to the "Noah's Ark" set, these sets will fire up your child's imaginative play! I recently received the "Under the Sea" set which includes a 13"x15" colorful play board with more than 20 high quality felt board pieces! It comes in a handy plastic storage packet that snaps shut and even has a handle on top. What an awesome travel toy!
The felt pieces are movable and cling to the felt board with a light friction, so the pieces are easy to move around even for the youngest children. The pictures printed on the felt board are realistic enough that even species of whales can be named! In just a few minutes of playing, the children wanted to know all the names of the sea animals, from the anemone to the killer whale to the eel. We even had a discussion about jellyfish and whether they can climb out of the water onto the beach.
I really love open-ended toys that encourage children to use their imagination. I listened to the children "become" the scuba diver and go meet all the sea animals. I even heard the clown fish tell a joke to the shark. The sea horse told the eel that he was too tired to let anyone ride his back today. The whales even all got together in one corner for a whale family reunion. You can buy felt board sets and more at the Betty Lukens website, plus follow Betty Lukens on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear about specials.
Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
