“I was looking for a gift for my 4-year-old niece who already has everything,” wrote an Amazon customer who bought the playset. “She absolutely loves it!!! She carries the mother everywhere and keeps the babies in the cage. She would be so excited if the mother ‘gave birth’. It has really kept her busy. The mama pig makes the sweetest sounds.
