Today is the first day of Spring Break for NYC kids and the weather is dreary outside. It’s a great day to kick off our 10-day break by just relaxing. I can’t say we got to sleep in, but we are definitely being lazy today. As I’m writing this, my kids are actually getting along- who knows how long that will last for? But, they have good reason to be buddies today, especially since new toys are better enjoyed with company than alone. My little guy (2.5) received two new sets from Playmobil that are just right for his age. The 1.2.3 Playmobil sets come with large pieces with minimal building, easy enough for kids 1.5 and up to do with a sibling or parent.
Playmobil 1.2.3 Pirate Ship $24.99 (9118)
This set is a just-right sized ship for my little guy. His older sisters helped put it together and they were ready to set sail in no time! The ship has a rotating wheel to steer, and a REAL water cannon that can be filled up to squirt at fellow scallywags. The vibrant colors are attractive, and the larger, easy to hold pieces are great for chunky little hands. The ship even floats, which would be fun in the summer on their water tables.
Playmobil 1.2.3 Pirate Island $14.99 (9119)
This set is a great addition to the 1.2.3 Pirate Ship. The ship can set sail to or from the Pirate Island which has a fun matching game built in! Little hands can learn to match shapes by placing the sea creatures in their slots. Pirate treasure is waiting to be discovered and a pirate is there to join the fun.
While you don’t need both sets to have fun, they surely complement each other during pretend play. Using both sets together also allows all three of my kids to each have a character to play, which means no fighting! The Playmobil 123 sets are just right for little ones who want all the fun Playmobil has to offer, in sets that are more appropriate for their age.
You can find these and other Playmobil 1.2.3 sets on Amazon.
