This year my son was introduced to Playmobil. Turns out he loves them just as much as the other brand of building kits he's been using for ages. I like them too. They're nice and sturdy, the pieces are big, they are easy to put together and they stay together!
This is the City Action Space Rocket with Launch Site. It has a light in it and various space sound effects (takes 2 AA batteries).
The model number on here is 6150. It's recommended for children age 6+.
I like that the instructions are easy to follow. It doesn't take a long time to set it up, and it's not frustrating.
The set comes with two figurines too. These are a nice size and they can be placed inside of the set in various places, including the space station.
Playmobil has fast become a winner in our house. It's wonderful for all ages, and makes it so very easy for kids to want to use their imaginations. I like a lot of things abou the brand, but that is most certainly my favorite.
There are 115 pieces in the set. If you are looking for something to make a child happy for the holiday, this certainly makes a great gift idea. I know a certain little boy in this house who is going to be over the moon happy to open this one on Christmas morning.
