My kids love to engage in dramatic play. I love to offer them dramatic play options! Playmobil is the perfect choice for my family because they offer a wide range of toy sets that allow children to pretend, re-enact and express themselves through playtime.
My boys got a chance to try out the Playmobil Take Along School House Set and The Playmobil School Bus, and these were ideal for encouraging dramatic play on the go! Let me tell you what we liked about these toys and why you are going to want to get these for your kids ages 4-10.
The Playmobil Take Along School House contains 68 pieces including a teacher, pupils, desks, chalkboard and learning tools like rulers, writing instruments and books. It also comes with a fun bike and bike rack, and more! We loved that the figures can bend to sit, they can stand and they can even ride that fun bike I mentioned earlier!
This is a great set for at home or on the go because there are enough pieces to entertain and engage, but not so many that you have to concern yourself with keeping track of them all! Retailing at about $40 this is a great gift idea for a sweet kid in your life that loves pretend play and school!
The Playmobil School Bus includes 4 figures and the bus as well as a few other accessories for a total of 12 pieces. This is the perfect complimenting toy for the school house set. When the two are combined together it makes the school experience complete and is a great simulation for a child that might be ready to start school soon.
The School Bus Set retails for about $20 and is a lot of fun for kids! My boys have been incredibly impressed with the School Bus and haven’t stopped playing with it since they got it!
These are both great sets that you are going to want to look for. I am a big fan of encouraging dramatic/pretend play as it has so many benefits for kids. Not only can they work various scenarios out via play that can help them in real life, but the dramatic play also allows for language development and it has so many social benefits for kids!
If you are looking for a great toy for kids between the ages of 4 and 10, I highly recommend the Playmobil line. We have been very impressed with the durability of these toy sets as well as the price of each. They are a great value and are going to bring your kids countless HOURS of playtime!
