Rated 5 out of 5 by starry Love it!! Cute and colorful animals; very sturdy.
This toy was received very well by my 1-year-old grandson for his birthday. Even his 2 older siblings are also playing with it. They are very interested in it after learning about Noah in Sunday School, so it is educational as well. The animals have very cute faces and I think this toy is virtually indestructible and it's very safe (no small parts), keeping with Fisher-Price's long-term quality.
My ONLY real complaint is WHERE IS NOAH'S WIFE??!! The older sets had her included. My granddaughter was asking me, "Where is Noah's wife?!" I will probably try to find one on ebay, but she really is an important figure to this set and I don't know why she is absent. All the animals are 2 x 2, but Noah is not! :) Please bring back Noah's wife in the future!
Bottom of ark could be a little larger or there could be pull down or slide down "windows" on the sides. It's not a terrible problem, but if you pile all 20 animals in here, a few tend to fall out of the windows when it's moved or tilted.
We are all VERY pleased with this purchase and I am very glad I went for the larger gift set with the extra animals. I think it is well worth the added cost, and getting free shipping on the more expensive item makes this a no-brainer cost-wise. You'll pay more for the extra animals if you decide to buy them later, if you can even find them. I could not find this larger set in the stores, but it is available here online. This toy will last for years.
