As if we don't have enough Playmobil playsets already -- we own a Victorian Townhouse, a Knight's Castle and the Wildlife Care Station -- they keep coming up with new collections to tempt me into buying them! One of their latest, the School Playworld, is perfect for back-to-school imaginative play. If my kids were about to enter preschool or kindergarten I could totally use it as an excuse to get Playmobil's new Furnished School Building, because the playset would be a great way to prepare kids for unfamiliar situations by using the playset to act them out. Alas, my kids don't have any such back-to-school fears. I guess I'll just have to fall back on my old standby -- that you can never have too many Playmobil sets!
PLAYMOBIL is introducing the School playworld, a brand new collection that will spark kids’ imaginations and prepare them for another exciting year of school.
A leading toy manufacturer both in the U.S. and around the world, PLAYMOBIL is well known for its iconic toys that provide children with continuous hours of open-ended imaginative play. The School playworld, is no exception. As the collection’s feature set, the Furnished School Building set is equipped with everything a real school has – a variety of classrooms, PLAYMOBIL figures and accessories, a functioning bell and chalkboard – all of which will leave kids looking forward to school long after the final bell has rung.
The Furnished School Building retails for $169.99 and the fun doesn’t stop there. Kids and parents can add more to their school with the School Gym, School Cafeteria, School Band and more. In recognition of it’s kid-friendly and educational, yet imaginative aspects, the PLAYMOBIL Furnished School Building recently won a National Parenting Center Toy Award – one of the most respected toy awards in the industry.
