Bing is something that has only recently been on in our house over the last couple of weeks and the boys have taken a nice little interest in it. In one of the episodes Bing misses ‘catching the toilet train’ before a game of hide and seek and Fisher-Price have come up with a lovely play house that goes nicely with this episode.
The play set consists of Sula’s house, a slide, a toilet and a bed as well as two figurines who are Bing and Sula themselves. Toby really enjoyed sending bed time Bing down the slide, although when I gave it a go the slide wasn’t really wide enough to accommodate the figures.
Bing fans can recreate a Bing toilet training moment by pressing down on part of the play mat laid out in the house and a little puddle appears on the floor. The mess is cleaned up by pressing the same piece of play mat. Toby really enjoyed taking the toilet play piece and putting it in different areas of the house. I like this feature because it meant Toby could explore a bit more with the idea of potty training, especially as it’s something we’ve recently had the pleasure of going through. I think some people might find it odd that the toilet isn’t a fixed piece though.
One of the only bug bears I have about this play set is that the bed only just fits into Sula’s bedroom and there’s not much room for the figure to play in there along side the bed as it falls out quite a lot.
It’s a strong, durable toy and Toby played with it nicely for about half an hour. Currently his imaginative play is quite limited but I think those who love Bing and love the play sets could spend lots of time creating scenes with Sula’s house.
There are more figures that you’re able to purchase separately – we also got sent Flop as Toby informed me before I had a chance to work out who it was and he was excited to start playing with him.
In all honesty, it’s a little pricey with a tag of £28.49 but this play set is worth the money if the kids love it!
