 Pretend play is an integral part of a child’s development. By putting him or herself into different roles, your child not only develops an imagination, but it also helps with empathy, problem solving, and other parts of your child’s development.

PLAYMOBIL is to pretend play what ice cream is to a cone. It’s pretend play’s best friend. I try to present my son with as many opportunities for pretend play as possible, as play is what makes a child’s world go round. 

“PLAYMOBIL®’s unique play principle stimulates imagination and creativity and thus promotes child development. With PLAYMOBIL®, children can not only slip into many different roles, but also recreate and experience the world in miniature.

With multiple talents, these cheerful figures successfully overcome all kinds of challenges – as knights or pirates in historical scenarios, as construction workers, vets and police officers today, or as secret agents in futuristic worlds.”

PLAYMOBIL offers so many options – it’s a million kid universes to choose from! I decided to share with you my two favorites to jump start your holiday shopping. But, whatever it is your child likes – whether it’s knights, castles, and warriors, or a luxury mansion, PLAYMOBIL’s play sets have such attention to detail, your child will truly have her own simulated world. 

Fire Engine with Lights and Sound:

Give your aspiring community helper something to help with! PLAYMOBIL’s City Action world include a fun line for your fire fighter fan. This fire engine is a great place to start. The real lights will excite your child, while he practices being a firefighter. It includes everything you need to get rid of those flames: clothing and gear, cones, a hose, an axe and other tools, a fire extinguisher, and more.

The truck can really accommodate the team! Four figures can fit into the cabin. The sirens make sure that everyone is out of the way in no time. And in true PLAYMOBIL style, everything fits. That means that in the fire fighter needs to hold on, it will be just the right size to fit his hands. 

Comes with 119 pieces, for ages 5-10


Children´s Playground:

M loves going with me to the playground, and his favorite part is the swing. He got so excited when he saw the “working” swing on this set! There is a slide, a play tower, a fence with a “real” working latch, and even greenery! The merry-go-round has handles that the figures can really hold on to. So does the swing and rocking horse. 

Even the figures show attention to detail. While the gear for the firefighter might be unique, I as fascinated also by the play hat and handbag that came with this set. The quilted jacket on one of the children is totally relatable. 

Comes with 116 pieces, for ages 4-10.

It will not only entertain your child for hours, but also provide a productive role play experience.
