I was lucky to be able to go to the Toy Fair UK 2016 back in January where I got an appointment to have a chat with the lovely people at Playmobil. They were at the stand Gallery 210 and they were showing their latest toys for 2016. It was a massive stand and full of amazing new toys. We love Playmobil at home, especially Bella. She has already a few toys from them and she can be hours playing with them. After that appointment we were very lucky that they were happy to work with us and now we have received our first toy to review!! YAAY!! HURRAH!! We are just so excited!! 😉
We received one of their latest Carrying Cases “Shop” from their latest theme collection called City Life. This is just the most fun idea to be able to bring your toy when you are out and about.
When we received the box, Bella was very excited to open it and find out what was inside. She was so happy when she saw that it was a shop set. “Wow” she said, lol.
She immediately wanted to open all the small little plastic bags that contain each items to build this set. Just please be careful with the little bags as if you leave your child unattended they can open it and mess with all the pieces and then you will not be able to build it properly. Also if you have kids younger than 3 years old, be aware that there are lost of small pieces. We were lucky that Sienna was at nursery (18 months) so we were able to build it with no worries.
The set comprised of a Playmobil shop assistant with a range of stylish clothes to offer to the shopper, including dresses and skirts, cute purses and handbags, perfumes, clothing mannequins, full-length mirror, checkout counter, perfume, sale signs, and additional accessories. The clothes can be swapped and changed on the figures. They also include simple instructions that we found great to follow too.
You will find everything you need to be able to play “shop” with your daughter. Bella was able to build some parts of this set, however I had to help her as there were parts that she wasn’t sure about. I had so much fun playing with her and helping her to put all the pieces together. I felt like I was 5 years old again, LOL!
This is definitely a great set for young girls to play with. Bella played for hours and told me that she had so much fun. She also mentioned that what she liked the most was playing with me!! Aww isn’t she adorable? I would have to say thank you to Playmobil for enabling us to have some lovely mummy-daughter time!! That was precious. Hopefully we can be lucky enough to get to unbox more toys from them, 😉
Each figure can transform her look with interchangeable clothing options that snap on. Bella really loves this feature. She kept changing the figures all the time and thought that this was super fun. I love that this set also encourages learning through role play.
One of the main features of this set is that everything is stored in a convenient take-along case. This is extremely practical as Bella was able to play this at home or when she was out and about. We got this lovely carry case just when Bella was going to spend some lovely time with her grandparents during half term, so we made sure she had it with her. She was really excited about being able to play with it at her grandparents.
The case is strong so it will keep all the pieces safe. We were so pleased with this carry case – it is great for holidays or even if we are just going out for dinner as she can play with it easily now that all the pieces are in one place. This product is a win win. As you can see from the photo above it is very easy to carry. Bella is my gorgeous model! Isn’t she cute?
We did a short video when we were unboxing and putting the set together. Please watch the video below or via YouTube:
We really recommend this carry case set to you. I’m sure your kids would love it. If you are looking for a carry case sets that might appeal more to boys, do go and browse their website for more options.
