When Benjamin was about four years old, he had birthday money to spend and used it to buy a PLAYMOBIL horse and stable set. It was my first experience with PLAYMOBIL and I fell in love with the high quality, interactive building/play sets at first sight. The company is constantly coming out with new themes and this year, PLAYMOBIL has some great choices for kids of all ages! Since Benjamin has just started skating and gained an interest in hockey, my personal favourites are the new PLAYMOBIL licenced NHL Hockey sets. Recently I received the NHL Score Clock with Referees and the NHL Arena so I could see for myself what they were like.
The NHL Score Clock features an actual working score clock and two referees, so that kids can keep track of the score as they pretend to play. With a countdown clock, sound effects and whistles for the referees, this set lets kids get the full hockey experience as they play! And with the logos of all the NHL teams emblazoning the clock, kids will be ready to cheer on their favourite teams.
Of course, the perfect compliment to the score clock set is the PLAYMOBIL NHL Arena! In addition to the arena itself, this set comes with hockey players, goalies, pucks, nets and more. Even better, the hockey players boast real shooting action so that kids can play games against each other! And with stickers for every NHL team included in the set, little hockey fans can pit their two favourite teams against each other for even more fun.
While not all kids love hockey as much as my two boys, PLAYMOBIL has a variety of other fun eww play sets to suit other interests too! From the brand new Porsche 911 Carrera S set to the fun-filled new Pony Farm to the interactive Pirate collection, every child is sure to find a PLAYMOBIL set to love!
