Nice toy, take a chance
By Alyssa A. Lappen
These are very cute plastic toys, and easy to clean, with no choking hazard. They seem easy to assemble, for young hands, and the manufacturer claims that the item is made with no PVC, BPA, Phthalates or lead. and that they are supposedly tested in an independent laboratory to meet European standards barring such ingredients.
I know parents who would not give anything plastic to their children, but on this item, I'd take a chance.

Adorable, easy to put together, creative and funny...
By Angela Reads
These animals are cute, easy to put together, and easy to understand even for very little ones. The pieces are large for little hands. My daughter wanted to play with them immediately when they arrived. I showed her how to take them apart, and she helped put them back together. Then, I showed her how the animals are interchangeable. You can make a Liophant or an Ellion, etc, etc. That made her laugh! She has been enjoying playing with the pieces and I think she will soon start to get more creative with them and make interesting creatures.
These also make good bath toys, in our opinion. She can also use these animals with other figurines, with her farm toys and even with her doll house. Lots of possibilities.
This is a nice toy for toddlers and preschoolers, builds creativity, I would definitely recommend it.

Fun put together animals
I got this for my grandson to play with while he spends weekdays at my house. He is a little young for the target age at 20 months old and the recommended age is 2+ years. I can understand the reasoning as it takes a lot of dexterity and fine muscle control to put these little animals together. I also thought that as he has been playing with Lego Duplo blocks since before he was a year old and he can put those together well, that he might be able to play with this toy and enjoy it.
At first, I thought it was going to be a case of I liked it better than he did, because he didn't pick them up at all. What finally sparked his interest was when I started taking the animals apart and putting them back together again. He has been playing with Mr. Potato Head and understands putting thing back together to make a creature, so I think that helped him understand the concept.
While we had a lot of fun playing with the animals and putting them together in different ways, I don't believe he understood that we were making unusual creatures. I would guess that might kick in some time during his second year. In the meantime, it is a really fun put together animals toy. Each animal has three pieces - two of one color and one of a neutral.
It is a toy that is fun to play with at this stage and could become even more fun once he realizes that he is making imaginary creatures. At that point, I could wish that Kid-O could come out with additional sets that interchange with this one so a child can makes many fun animals of their own creation.
