If your little one loves animals like Sonya Lee does, she’ll love all the pretend play in the pet salon! Furry friends can start at the bathtub for a wash, then use the blow dryer for realistic sounds! Your little one or Sonya Lee can give the pets a good brushing, then send them to the other side of the salon for a snack and a nap! Includes salon with hair dryer, bathtub, salon chair, basket, brush that Sonya Lee can hold, dog & cat with brushable fur, and Sonya Lee figure. Everything folds up and stores inside, and there’s a convenient carry handle for take-along fun! Requires 2 AA batteries.
Discovering how things work & imitation:
Interacting with others:
- This imaginative stage lets your child be the “director” of the action, making all the decisions and even including others in the play. Imagining helps a child think things through, which is great preparation for learning.
Imagination of a pretend world:
- Inviting others to join in the play (“You be Sonya Lee and I’ll be the doggy!”)
- Pretending to “blow dry” one of the pets after a bath!
Requires 2 AA batteries.
