Pretend school play sets?

(5 Posts)

Just wondering if anyone has experience of any pretend school play sets? My 7yo loves playing school with her stuffed animals, and I am planning to get her some self-adhesive blackboard foil/film for her wall along with some chalk, but would like to add some other stuff too. Just not sure which of these would be better? If you have either of these, has it held up well?

Any other suggestions of what I might add?

I would say put together your own set, it's more fun and the set will be better. we had an easel/whiteboard combo and then bought a load of stuff on Amazon, reward certificates, raffle tickets for house points, a lanyard and card, reward stickers, registration book - my daughter loved the fact that she had some of exactly the same things as her teacher used.

DD 8 was given the learning resources set last Christmas and has played with it all year. She loves it, and DD10 plays with it too. It packs up neatly which is useful.

We bought the learning resources one for DD's Christmas when she was 6-she loved it and it has been played with loads.
Think we added in a couple of extra things like good work stamps and stickers and a desk type handle pencil sharpener but it was definitely a hit!

Thank you for your suggestions! I decided to put together a set of my own, great fun! It currently consists of:

A teacher registration book
A teaching clock
Lots of reward stickers
Some laminated math posters with numbers/shapes
A handful of ruled exercise books
A handful of workbooks spelling/math/tell the time
A handful of Level 1 reading books (our first language is not English but dd currently goes to an American school, so good practice)

Still not decided whether I will go with a white board or self-adhesive black board. Will also get board eraser and chalk/white board markers.

This is turning out to be quite an expensive present, but very successful I expect!

And the questions is whether I have missed something crucial...
