This was our first set from Playmobil and did it ever get the attention of both of my daughters. The bright colours on the box had them interested immediately. Requests for me to open the box were prompt from my 3 year old. Playmobil 1.2.3 Fun in the Sun was an instant favourite this Summer.
Enjoy the summer with PLAYMOBIL 1.2.3 Fun in the Sun. Take a plane ride up into the clouds, before heading back to earth for a leisurely boat excursion. Relax on the beach and lounge under the bright yellow umbrella.
The Playmobil 1.2.3 sets are geared towards toddlers with the ideal age being 18 months. My daughters are 3 1/2 and almost 11 months, both of them enjoyed playing with this set. The pieces are all rounded, which means no sharp corners to worry about. Each item features bright colours that grab the attention of the child playing with them.
The Fun in the Sun set contains a floating boat, floating fish, beach umbrella, plane with spinning propeller, two adult figures, and one child figure. Instantly my preschooler started putting her imagination to work with this set. She had everyone flying away on a vacation where they got to go boating and swimming. Listening to her play out a whole adventure with all the items was incredible to me.
I knew this Playmobil 1.2.3 set was a favourite when my daughter packed all the pieces back into the box they came in and brought them to her room before bed one night. Despite my placing it on the shelf after her bedtime routine she still ended up pulling it out and fell asleep with the plane in her hand.
This is a fantastic set if you make sensory bins for your children. You could do a water themed bin and let your child play with the boat and fish or have the figurines go “swimming”. There is so much potential for different activities to do with the Fun in the sun set. My daughter has also taken it outside to be played with in the water table. This was when my youngest daughter discovered the boat and claimed it as her favourite.
My girls thoroughly enjoyed playing with the Playmobil 1.2.3 Fun in the Sun set. We will definitely be adding more sets to our collection for them to discover and use for pretend play.
