Limitless fun with Antsy Pants Build And Play kits

Building Antsy Pants market 2If I was describing the perfect toy, it would be something that was a project. Something that took a while to set up, provided customizing opportunities so the kids can get creative, and it would have an ambiguous design that allowed for almost limitless play. All of this adds up to something that the kids play with longer than 15 minutes, and something that they return to over and over again for different types of play. Antsy Pants BoxesIn that “perfect play” category is the new Build & Play™ sets from Antsy Pants. Their newest release, the Build & Play™ Mini Market checks off every “want” of mine for toys, while still being a super fun and exciting toy that the kids go crazy for every time I bring it out.Antsy Pants builderThe Antsy Pants™ Build and Play™ Mini Market Checkout Stand is the perfect spot for your little entrepreneurs to put their freshest produce on display and ring up purchases. Antsy Pants Market with kidsThe kit contains everything you need to build your own Checkout Stand, and you can add on the Market Shelf, Antsy Pants™ felt Play Food, a cardboard build-able cash register with color-able currency, and even a Market Cart that are all sold separately that add to the playtime.

Building and creating something new was so much fun for them, and it really is surprisingly easy to do.

They can take turns bringing the Antsy Pants felt foods to the market, selling their harvest, and making and exchanging currency.
