With kids becoming more dependent on technology, it is important to me that my children experience the benefits of traditional play. However, with the toy industry adapting to the digital age, traditional toys are becoming harder to find. Thankfully, companies such as PlAYMOBIL® continue to provide toys that engage kids in classic, creative play. PLAYMOBIL was generous enough to send me their Ski Lodge building set to review.
Since its creation by Hans Beck in 1974, PLAYMOBIL has inspired children around the world with its themed playsets. The company’s highly detailed figures have iconic smiles and feature movable joints to capture the personality of each character. Each figure is part of a theme to stimulate a child’s imagination as they create a miniature world. The themes range from sports and history to princesses and pirates. PLAYMOBIL continues to create new characters to keep kids engaged in classic play.
The Ski Lodge is a 146 piece set that includes five figures, chairs, mittens, firewood, shovels, and much more. With this set, guests can rent equipment to test their skills on the snowy slopes, warm up to a cup of hot cocoa, or enjoy the view from the terrace. When the day comes to end, they can warm up by the fire before heading to the cozy beds in the loft. This set comes with detailed instructions to help with the building process. You can purchase it on the PLAYMOBIL website. You will also find other Winter Sports figures and accessories for even more ways to play.
We did not have the technology that we have today while I was growing up, so we often relied on our imaginations when it came to play. Some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around the make-believe worlds my sister and I created. I want my children to create these types of lasting memories so I love toys like PLAYMOBIL that encourage pretend, open-ended play. With PLAYMOBIL toys, the possibilities for creative role play are endless. The sets serve as a backdrop that children can build their stories around. As they bring these stories to life, they are also improving their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
My boys love to build and they couldn’t wait to get started on this set. With a little help, they assembled it correctly in under an hour. The pieces feature incredible details that really help bring the scene to life. The boys have since combined this set with some of their others to create a world only they understand. This is definitely a toy you can save and cherish for generations to come.
