Playmobil: My Takealong 1.2.3 – Noah’s Ark

June 16, 2011

My kids (like many other kids… lol) love toys!! Andrew and Ethan spend countless hours playing each day with their toys.  For Andrew – he’s mostly into things with wheels and trains and cars and whatnot; but Ethan’s mind is an OPEN slate.  He just loves anything that goes into his mouth nicely Smile

While visiting a local store recently: Andrew and I discovered a new style toy that he loves.  And those toys are made from Playmobil.  What AMAZING detail and thought that goes into these toys – they are simply awesome.toys.

Playmobil_noahs_arcBeing that Andrew is only 2 1/2 and Ethan is just a measly 7 months, we didn’t want to get started with the big elaborate toys with lots of pieces that they can choke on – so we looked for some toys in their 1.2.3 line –  made for kids under 3.  I got in contact with the Playmobil Rep and we were able to review the 1.2.3 My Takealong Noah’s Ark set!

While these toys aren’t as exciting for mom and dad as a really cool big kids set would be, they are still fun and really exciting for the boys.  Andrew loved playing pretend and walking the animals up and letting them ‘slide’ down the ramp, exclaiming ‘WeeeeEEEE!!’ for them.DSC08475

Ethan, While we made animal noises at him and held them up to him – he just wanted to eat them Smile I’m sure he’ll love playing with these too – eventually!

DSC08400A few fun and practical things about this Noahs ark is that all the toys can hide inside, and then there is a handle – so this can be carried with him around the house (which he loves.) DSC08480

It can also be a bathtime toy – because Noah’s Ark REALLY floats! Granted – imagejust a personal note:  I don’t like putting toys in the bath tub that ‘collect’ water.  Because water siting inside of toys – creates mold, and then having a kid suck on them and essentially drink the mold – just doesn’t work in my book.  So. I did not inform my son that this boat really floats – because while the boat doesn’t collect water – I’m afraid that the animals are bound to follow into the tub – and they collect water.  If you’re good and clean/shake/dry all of your toys after each bath – these toys are rather simple to shake the water out of… I just don’t always remember to do that; so I just don’t put them in the tub.

We have already had several hours of play time with this Noah’s Ark playset – but I’m sure we’ll have many more hours in the future.  Our home is surely bound to become a Playmobil wonderland… because, well.. MY imagination just goes wild when I look at these toys… And, it’s not REALLY about the kids.. Winking smile Right??

Win It!!!
