The girls love imaginative play. They love their Schleich figures and creating adventures. Recently the girls were sent the Croco jungle research station by Schleich, and they were keen to create an adventure. First though we had to build the station.
The Croco Jungle Research station took around 15 minutes to build but the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Each piece was easy to fit together and nothing was too fiddly, in fact it was actually simple to build. The girls helped, assembling trap doors and filling chests with gold coins. As you would expect with Schleich everything is of exceptional build quality and could withstand a 5 year old attempting to fit pieces together.
The Croco jungle research station as 3 areas that can be played with independently or together. The crocodile rock has an upper jaw that can be opened, closed or removed. Inside the jaw is a hiding place in one of the teeth. The back of the skull can also be removed to reveal a hidden treasure chamber. The Crocodile rock can then be clipped to the viewing platform. In doing so the secret trapdoor leads into the treasure chamber. This is then linked to the house. A ranger and scientific equipment come with the set, along with 4 animals, and the girls use the house as the rangers house. The third piece is a pen. The girls open the pen up and use to capture crocodiles. The pen can be placed near the house or further away.
We were sent the croco jungle research station in exchange for this post. All words are my own opinion.
