We were sent two of these clever Playmobil Eggs; they are a great alternative to chocolate for Easter. My two seem to get so much; I end up having to help them get through it all (a huge hardship I know lol!). But I do worry about their teeth and it’s useful to see some alternatives to the sugary stuff!
They get eggs off the family and then usually there are a number of Easter related events in the community where they end up with yet more chocolate! So I think hubbie and I should come up with something else for them each year and these offerings from Playmobil are ideal. At £5.99 each they are no more expensive than some of the big eggs but have lots more playability. It is quite exciting opening the plastic egg and seeing the Playmobil toy inside.
It is a mini build project complete with instructions. There is not too much to do, but enough for your child to feel satisfied they helped build it. Eldest decided to wear the tiny bikers helmet for himself (you can just about see it!).
We were sent the Robo Gang Spy with Glider and the Biker with Motorcycle. Both toys when made were good fun. The boys were happily occupied, eldest seeing what daring stunts the biker could do (upside down on the handlebars being a particular favourite!) and youngest shooting the weapon again and again (he is not pictured as his mouth went completely blue after eating too many raspberry bon bon's).
There are four egg sets available on the website, the two I mentioned that we were sent and Flower Fairy and Native American girl sets to appeal to the girls. Although I have a feeling they will be just as keen to do stunts and fire the weapon as the boys were.
I also noticed whilst I was on the website that they had an Easter Calendar (£9.99) I really liked the look of this, with all the bunnies eldest would have been in his element!
