City of Dreams by Mon Petit Art
I do love a good cardboard construction toy – evidenced by the amount on KidsOnRoof and Junzo Terada in our house – so I was thrilled to spot Mon Petit Art’s City of Dreams while ‘browsing’ in the Tate Modern shop the other day (perils of working in Southwark).
The building kit comprises a cardboard carry case containing a tower and 73 vibrantly coloured push-out pieces – think flowers, trees, fruit, creatures, quirky ladders. The box states suitable from ages 5-12, but I laugh in the face of age restrictions – soon-to-be three-year-old Alfie would adore helping to put this together and get a lot out of the resulting imaginative play.
