I must confess, I love the Little People! My oldest two children have tons of Little People sets that they have now passed down to my youngest, so I have to say I was a bit annoyed that they decided to change the style of the people this year by giving them jointed bodies! Still, I had to give in and buy this new set, even though it won't "match" with our older sets, just because it was so darn cute!
The camping set was popular back in the late 70s and early 80s when I was growing up. I remember having it and it being one of my favorites. So when I saw this newly released version, I had to get it for my two year old. It is a very neat set and comes with lots of fun pieces. The set consists of a car and pop-up camper plus lots of other fun accessories. The camper folds out very easily and has a little kitchen and sleeps two. Another cool featuer is the boombox that plays different sound effects when pressed. There are camping chairs, a campfire, and Sarah Lynn and Maggie figures (who actually bend at the waist and have free arms!)
I think I actually was more impressed with this set than my two year old was, but she does enjoy playing with it just like all of her Little People sets. It's a great addition to any child's Little People collection and will get lots of fun role-playing going with the camping theme. Very well done and very nostalgic for us Little People loving parents!
