What It Is
Beloved children's literature character Babar goes to the museum and kids can go along as well with the Babar Museum of Art Magnetic Characters kit. Kids can create their own museum adventures with more than 30 magnets that feature images of real works of art. The kit also includes four background scenes, including the gallery halls of the Metropolitan in New York City, the outdoor sculpture galleries of the Getty Museum in California, and Babar's bedroom. All the pieces fit inside the tin case.
Is It Fun?
The Babar Museum of Art Magnetic Characters kit is great for travel or just quiet play at home. It encourages creative, open-ended play and imaginative interaction with the characters. We only wish that Mudpuppy had put the names of the works of art and artists on the magnets so that kids could become familiar with real works of art and the artists behind them.
Who It’s For
Babar Museum of Art Magnetic Characters is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The quality of the magnets is very good. The magnets are sturdy and the images seem to be glued or printed onto the magnet very well. This kit is certainly of a higher quality than some other magnet playsets.
The pictures are inspired by the original Babar books, rather than more recent animation depictions of Babar and his friends.
