Ready to travel to Africa and Asia to learn about safari animals? OK so, we can’t quite hop on a plane yet, but we can create a little home safari for our future globetrotters to explore. Let’s find out more about safari animals in French!
What are safari animals in French?
Safari animals in French is “animaux de safari“. Note that I am not using the term “animaux de la savane” because I’ve included tigers, which are found primarily in Asia.
Disclosure: I’ve included Amazon links in case you’d like to purchase these toys. Please note that if you click through and make a purchase, I will earn a commission (at no extra cost to you).
Safari animal play figurines: learning French with toys
I love investing in play figures for our daughter, Surya. Not only are excellent for language development, but they also encourage imaginative play. These educational toys also have longevity and appeal to a range of children, from toddlers to preschoolers, kindergarteners, and even older kids. When not in use, you can conveniently store them away in a box or basket or you can display them in your child’s room since they can also be used as decor items in the home.
We purchased the Prextex Safari Animal Figurines for four main reasons:
- The animals look relatively realistic
- The figures come in just the right size, eliminating choking concerns
- The toys are solid and durable
- The set includes a small educational booklet about the animals
