Playmobil is an awesome brand if you like to have fun with easy, ready made sets, that come in all sorts of varieties so that there is something for everyone. Oh- that has to be pretty much every single person on the planet, right? SO, it’s just awesome!
I love playsets- they are already ready, with everything that you need to get down and play. No endless shopping trips for each figure, each accessory. If you want to build a HUGE playset, that’s fine too- because you can add them on and make a metropolis of playsets in the same theme. Good news? They are each their own set, so you can add or not. You can add all or add just one- you can do whatever you want. It’s just easy!
They are good for travel and take-along as well, since they come in sets. We put this cute 4843Treasure Hunter´s Camp with Giant Snake into a little backpack, and along it comes to grandma’s! Something else I love? When you are on the site, and looking at a set- it gives you others that are similar or are part of the same theme on the side. I find that helpful. This one reminds me of Indiana Jones- check out the line of toys that are themed with it- they really do make you want to crack a bullwhip, LOL. I like that they also included a girl figure- I dislike it when they make all the figures boys, give the girls something, too!
Little Man liked the giant snake so much that we used it as a jumping board to teach him about snakes, frogs, and other creepy crawlies. This led to a fun morning at the library! He now knows that not all snakes have rattles, LOL, and that they lay eggs. It’s a good start for a 3 year old!
I also took out books of places that have “ruins” (temples, Mayan and Greek sites, etc) and showed him places that used to be thriving, where currently people explore and dig for history. He’s a little young, so I kept if brief- a few sentences and mostly photos- but I hope it was a building block for both a love of history (like his momma!) and a love of travel.
One of you will win this same set!
