With the World Cup having fired up everyone’s interest in
football the boys were keen to review this new football set from
Playmobil. The two other sets pictured we will be reviewing in a separate post.
I must admit even I was
quite taken by it, its quite enjoyable trying to score a goal with one of the
Playmobil footballers. The set comes
complete with two goalkeepers and four players, it seems a quality toy and the
movement from the goalies is quite impressive, as they really do dive to save
set can be folded away for easy transport, but I have a feeling our set will
always be out and in use but its handy to know you can pack it away tidily if
needed. It’s the perfect action toy for
my boys and I have a feeling this is one toy that will be on lots of Christmas
lists this year. It was a novelty
seeing the boys play nicely together with it and its something they can manage
quite easily on there own. Fortunately
it was very simple to set up too, so simple I did it in less than 5 minutes
including adding the stickers to decorate it.
Along Soccer Match costs £49.99 and I think it offers lots of playability
for that. You can also add extra
football players to the teams so you feel your pitch is better utilised, ours
looked a little empty with just the included players, but at £3.99 each the
extra characters (from teams around the world) would make lovely stocking
fillers. You can even get a set of
referees (£6.99) to make sure the players are behaving themselves!
am thinking of surprising the boys with the Soccer Shoot Out so they can
practise the accuracy of their kicks!
All in all this new Sports & Action theme from Playmobil gets the
thumbs up from us.
