Patti loves animals! We've bought tons of these realistic horses, cows, elephants, giraffes, zebras, etc. etc. etc. We also have tons of insects, dinosaurs, etc. She gets in these "zones" (I just don't know what else to call them) where she moves them around the house (the entire herd!). They'll be on the coffee table, end table, fireplace, dining room table, etc. etc. etc. If anyone dares play with them, we have a total meltown. Ask Phoebe about it.
She "hides" them under the couch.
