For more than five decades, Little People toys have inspired fun discoveries and imaginative play for so many preschoolers in a world that’s “just their size” – from timeless playsets like the farm, house and garage to DVDs, CDs, books, games and more! Whether you recall playing with wooden peg figures or colorful chunky characters, these legendary toys have touched many generations with their charm.

The mission of the Chicago Zoological Society, which manages Brookfield Zoo, is to inspire conservation leadership by connecting people with wildlife and nature. Open every day of the year, Brookfield Zoo is located off First Avenue between the Stevenson (I-55) and Eisenhower (I-290) expressways and is also accessible via the Tri-State Tollway (I-294), Metra commuter line, CTA, and PACE bus service.
