Playmobil Princess and Knights - Review

As Playmobil Playologist, we often have the important job of reviewing some of the toys and we recently received two sets to play with. Miss C, a huge Playmobil fan, is always so excited when she sees anything relating to Playmobil whether this is on the TV, in a shop or in a magazine. So things do get a bit wild in our house when a Playmobil package arrives.

Our recent parcel was no exception. Not only was Miss C delighted to find a new toy for her but Z was equally excited to find a set for him that I knew he would love.

First up we received the Take Along Princess Birthday set (product number 5359) which is aimed at ages 4 - 10 years. These take along sets are fantastic and this is Miss C's third one. She always looks to see which animals are included in the set and she was delighted to see a dog, a cat, a frog and a swan to add to her animal collection.

Miss C and I put this set together in around 10 minutes. It was really easy to set up and comes with lots of fun accessories including a birthday cake and some presents. There's a garden area that you can  play with your people on and two backdrops for inside the case; a ball room and a garden area with a water fountain. Everything can be stored inside the carry case so Miss C can take it along to her Gran's house and store all the bits together so they don't get lost.

Z was really keen to open the Wolfs Knights' Castle set (product number 6002) which is aimed at ages 4 - 10 years. This set has more pieces to it so it took a bit longer to build. Z wanted to build it by himself and the instructions were straightforward enough for him to do so in just under an hour.

This set comes with figurines and a horse to play with and we loved the little trap door that drops the baddies in to the dungeon. The details are fantastic such as the flame torches and the little lock on the dungeon gate. Z doesn't really sit and play very often as he prefers puzzles or reading but he genuinely sat and played for ages with the Knights' castle.

As always, I am super impressed with the quality of the toys we received and I've found that, even with the sets we've bought ourselves, Playmobil toys are worth the money for durability and the hours of imaginative play they offer.

I made a video of the kids taking the toys out of their boxes, building them and then playing with them which you can watch below.

We received these items to review as we are Playmobil Playologists. The opinions expressed are my own.
