Small Tiger Family
Come and meet one of the fiercest animals that stalk the jungle - mum, dad and their two baby cubs. These tiger models are impressively detailed, giving children a realistic impression of what these fearsome animals are like. Why not pair them with our other small animal families and see who wins in the battle for the jungle!
This tiger family gives children so much opportunity to discover and explore what it's like to live in the wild. Look at their habitat and how they hunt for food or explore where they got their nickname of kings of the jungle from! Children can use the family as objects for counting, explore the patterns on their backs or even compare the difference in size and weight of the adults and the babies, a superb way to make maths fun! Older children could use them as a stimulus for writing, writing their version of The Lion King or planning a new story entirely.

Understanding the World – Children may play with small world characters to investigate their environment noticing similarities, differences and details. Children may make observations of animals and find out about similarities and differences between familiar animals.
Expressive Arts and Design – Children may begin to introduce a story line or narrative to their play; building stories around toys and working collaboratively with other children to act out their ideas.
