Imagination at Play with Little People

By  | Last Updated:  

I am part of the Fisher-Price Little People® Blogger Campaign with Mom Central Canada and I receive special perks as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.

It’s such a joy to watch your little one imagine, play, and learn. Sam often repeats the recent life lessons he’s learned to his toys. I can always tell when he’s been listening to me! I know that Sam learns the most while he’s playing and having fun. One of his favorite toys to enjoy are Fisher-Price Little People®. Recently, I listened to an animated conversation where Sam was part of the action with his little friends. Gone were the divides of size and realness. Each character was real in Sam’s mind and he was part of the gang. It was the sweetest thing ever.

Using LIttle People to Help with Speech Therapy

It’s always fun to hear the story lines he comes up with. I know he identifies with the characters, as he discusses them with excitement. Because of his love of his Fisher-Price Little People®, I actually had the idea to use them to practice his speech therapy. We visit a Speech Language Pathologist twice a week and, together with her, we have been working on his grammar. He was having a hard time with she, he and they. His use of she was non-existent – and sometimes he would use him or her instead of he and she. But with some fun activities (plus a great speech therapist and teachers), you can now see how well he is doing!

Sam was especially excited that five new characters have been released to play with: Eddie, Mia, Sofie, Tessa, and Koby. It has certainly helped vary things up a bit to have new people to play with. You can learn more about the new Fisher-Price Little People® on their website.  

Plus, in October and November, Treehouse will hold the Little People, Big Discoveries contest. You can play a hide and seek game to find new characters on the playsets, watch videos, and be entered to win one of five Little People prize packs, each valued at $265! .

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
