The role-play packs in the Wannabees range provide everything children need to pretend to be the profession of their choice. The packs contain forms, stickers and certificates that children can use to feel like they are playing for real.
The first two packs on the market, I Want to be a Teacher and I Want to be a Doctor, provide everything a child needs to play at being a teacher or doctor. There are plans to roll out further professions next year.
Lynne Rees, co-owner of Wannabees, said: “ All of us can relate to our younger years when we used to spend many a happy hour just pretending and it was those happy memories that inspired us to create a toy that encourages playing for real.” Co-owner Pippa Miln commented: “We are truly bowled over by winning an award in the first month of trading. We believe we have a great product and we’re delighted that others feel the same way – this has given us such confidence in what we are doing.”
David Smith, founder of ToyTalk, said: “Our reviewers loved the amount of detail in the ‘I Want to be a Teacher’ set, and the fact that so much was packed into it. Teachers have commented that they could use this in their own lesson plans and children loved creating their own classroom with friends or toys.”
