African Wild Animal-Lioness


Did you know lions sleep up to 20 hours a day and can eat 66 pounds of food at one meal? The only cat to hunt in teams, lions use their strength as a pride to bring down large hoofed animals, including buffalo and young or weak elephants. Lioness measures 6 1/4″L x 2 3/4″H.

Product Description

Imaginative play allows children to make sense of the world around them and to create their own worlds. They can imitate what they’ve seen and experienced or create an altogether different reality. The child is free to decide how to play. Safari® animal replicas make ideal play props for pretend play. Young children often sort the animals, separating ones that go together from those that don’t, farm animals from wild ones, adults from juveniles or putting alike adults and juveniles together to create families. This often leads to creating scenarios and storytelling. The stories sometimes reflect what’s on the mind of the child and facilitate working through fears and worries. When engaging in imaginative play with others, children learn to articulate their ideas, listen to their playmates, cooperate, negotiate, and compromise, all valuable social skills.
