I’ve often commented on how much I love the Fisher-Price line of toys, not just because they’re designed to provide educational fun for children but also because they are so timeless. My very first toy ever, bought when my mom was eight months pregnant with me, was a Fisher-Price Happy Apple and that jingling plaything went on to provide entertainment to all five of my mom’s children and then later to my own son.
The Happy Apple is my personal favourite timeless toy just for its sentimental value but the Fisher-Price Little People Animal Friends Farm, first released in 1978, is no less iconic. And while the look of the farm may have changed over the years, its ability to stimulate imaginative play and encourage parent/child interaction hasn’t changed a bit! My boys both loved their Little People Animal Friends Farm and I have fond memories of watching them create stories with the animals and of sitting down on the floor and playing with them!
While I love the farm theme of this toy, there are plenty of other popular Fisher-Price Little People play sets too and no matter which one is your child’s favourite, you can get it at a great price this month thanks to the Little People World of Savings promotion! Just head to Walmart or Toys’R’Us to find coupons for $5 off Little People Farm & Home products, $10 off any purchase of $55 or more, and $15 off any purchase of $75 or more!

To enter to win, just leave a blog comment about whether you or your child has a favourite Fisher-Price toy.
Even though my boys are getting older, my animal-loving youngest son still refuses to part with his Fisher-Price Little People Animal Friends Farm. The stories he invents with the characters may have increased in complexity from his toddler days but the fun he has playing with the farmhouse hasn’t diminished at all. That’s why Fisher-Price toys will always be a must in my house. And even when my boys are fully grown and have families of their own, I know my grandchildren will get the same timeless enjoyment out of this classic toy from Fisher-Price!
