If you were born less than 37 years ago chances are you owned a Playmobil toy. These miniature size plastic movable toys are as popular today as they were when they first hit stores worldwide in 1975. What started out as the basic themes of construction sites and knights have multiplied into any theme imaginable. I bought this farm set for my children for Christmas and of course it was well received. After dumping out the teeny tiny pieces we quickly built our set and the playing has never stopped.
The attention to detail is what I find so fascinating, which helps me understand the price tag that comes along with such a great activity. From this particular set nothing was forgotten, heat lamps for the mama pig & her piglets, labeled battery for the wire fence, even the cow poop was included (my kids found that quite amusing). Not sure if this farm set sold in North America would also include the solar panels on the rooftops, just like you would see here in Europe. So environmentally friendly 🙂
The big question however, still remains. How long will it take before one of these pieces falls victim to the vacuum cleaner?
