Children and parents had a great time with the Recycled Cardboard Zoo. For a family who loves to color and create, this set is a dream come true. Our little architect was in charge of putting together the animals' habitats, our artists colored, and our designers put it all together. There is something for everyone in the Recycled Cardboard Zoo. This is a great activity for the whole family to do together on a rainy day. From the fuzzy zebras to the life-like aquarium, this zoo will keep your little animals busy for hours. The best part about this set is its instruction's suggestions for using ordinary household items, such as used egg cartons (think: igloos for the penguins!), to spruce up and add even more dimension to the zoo. Once they got ideas from the instructions, testers kept finding things around the house to add as accessories to the zoo, and the fun and pretending just kept going. It's a fantastic set for families with varying ages of kids, because it's a great learning experience both about animals and their habitats, and about recycling and helping the environment. Plus, who doesn't like coloring? Even mom and dad will enjoy this activity.
