Spin Master toys brought us the Aquadoodle, and now they have created toys showcasing one of my favorite 6-year-old pigs: Olivia!
Olivia is the star of best-selling children’s books and a Nick Jr. TV show.
I have never seen the show, but we are big fans of the books. When Jojo saw the Olivia 2-In 1 Playset, he seriously gave me an enthusiastic, spontaneous hug and said, “I LOVE IT!”.
It is called the Olivia 2-In 1 Playset because you can “flip it” to play in Olivia’s house OR a pirate ship.
The house has a bedroom, kitchen, and living room, and the ship has a bit of sand/water, below deck sleeping quarters, and a deck with a crow’s nest!
The Olivia 2-In 1 Playset includes one Olivia figure with removable rubbery clothing, and 23 accessories such as a pirate hat, pirate eye patch, and house furniture.
Some of the accessories are REALLY TINY. I gave my kids a coin purse to put the accessories inside before they shut it in the house.
Both of the boys (ages 3 and 6) really like playing with the Olivia 2-In 1 Playset, although Jojo as a little incredulous to learn that Olivia was female.
We read the books, but suddenly he was confronted with this toy pig wearing a dress and it hit him kind of hard.
He still plays with it though.
We also got an adorable Olivia The Artist plush.
She has on a beret and a little painting smock with paint splotches on it.
She has a plush paintbrush and palate connected to her hands. Or hooves.
Jojo used Olivia The Artist for company while he was engaging in his own artistry.
