Disney Animal World books and playset

This is a collaborative post. 

Over the past few weeks, Libby’s reading has come on in leaps and bounds. Not least because she’s finally managing to read things she finds interesting. In fact, we’ve been reviewing the Disney Animal World books and they’re so engaging that even I’m learning something.

Disney Animal World books - set of six

Disney Animal World Books

I was surprised how impressed I was with the Disney Animal World books. Because they’re Disney, I expected them to be more like a comic book with a cartoon format. I thought they would be based purely on favourite stories, rather than anything informative. In fact, I couldn’t have been more wrong.

There’s the perfect balance between stories featuring Disney characters and incredibly informative animal facts. The stories are full of bright cartoon pictures of the characters, and they pop up on the factual pages as well. There are also gorgeous, high quality photos of the animals that are covered in the book. Each one focusses on just a few animals, with some fascinating facts about them. Did you know that tree frogs live in groups called an army? Me neither.

Disney Animal World Toys

With every issue of Disney Animal World, children receive one or more little toys. The toys collectively make up a Safari Playset. Each figure is relevant to the book it comes with, so they can play with it whilst learning about that animal. The girls have loved building up their collection, and take great delight in acting out stories with their characters. Plus, isn’t their hair hilarious on the trampoline??

    I don’t think my little boy has a favourite animal tbh, he just seems to love all animals and creatures. Here’s an example. We currently have a pet slug called “beautiful slug” in a reptile tank in our living room because the little man fell in love with it. I didn’t know Disney did these books, but they look great!

    Hi Nat, these books look lovely. I remember having similar sort of books when I was a young girl (all those years ago) and I would spend hours looking through and enjoying them. The toys are a great addition as I’m sure they will help feed the children’s imagination… Is that static making their hair wild? Shame you can’t bottle it!


    • monsterid May 13, 2018 / 9:22 pm

      Yes, I think I remember something similar too now that you mention it! Haha yep love the static hair!

    My nephew loves cats. I think it’s because we all have cats (he doesnt) and finds them intriguing. He says “catta” when he sees one.

    Crocodile! I’m not sure why, I think it’s because one of the first songs she learned at nursery was about them. But now she’s seen real ones, she realises they are nothing like the song – and loves them even more.

    May 10, 2018 / 10:13 am
