The Safari Ltd Ancient Rome

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

A few weeks ago, Safari Ltd (Safari Toobs) sent us these amazing Ancient Rome Supertoob which is composed of 12 historical figures and a perfect learning tool to go along with our Ancient History Learning Cards. Mavi loves history and he was over the moon when he saw these beautiful figures arrive.  The figures are big, and sturdy.  I specifically love that they included the Aqueduct and Pantheon, landmarks that are not included in their previous landmark toobs.

Anyway, we’ve been busy using these figures for weeks now.  Here are some of the ways we’ve been using them.

LEARNING THE LANDMARKS OF ROME

I showed Vito our pictures when we went to Rome years ago, and he loved seeing his parents and older brother in the photo with these familiar landmarks in the background.  This is the reason why when I showed him the figures, he was able to identify them right away!  We love using these beautiful landmarks in learning about Rome and using them together with our Landmarks of Europe learning cards.

HISTORY OF ROME

Last year I made Mavi these learning materials about the ancient history of the world, and it includes some of the iconic Romans in history.  I am more than happy that Safari Toobs included these famous Roman figures in their toys so children who are drawn to history can find these very helpful.

PLAY PRETEND

And of course, nothing beats using these figures as play pretend materials!  We talked about each of the character figures in the toob set and the boys immediately used them for their play pretend of the Roman empire.  Vito specifically loved the gladiator figure and used it to fight the “bad” emperor LOL.

We love Safari Toobs and I’m always in awe of the details the creators have put into them.  I’ve been collecting these toys for years now, and they have been essential tools in our homeschool journey.  I love this Ancient Rome Toob and highly recommend it!  You can purchase this in either the Safari Ltd online shop or in Amazon.

PS.  I received this set from Safari Ltd in exchange of an honest review.  Any opinions expressed here are my own.
