If you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids over the half term, or in the run up to Christmas, the PLAYMOBIL Super 4-themed adventure trails around London make a fun day out and it’s free to take part, which is great!
To launch its first ever toy range of the smash hit PLAYMOBIL-inspired CITV series, Super 4, PLAYMOBIL has hidden the world’s most expensive Super 4 figures across London.
We went along to try out one of the trails and had fun hunting for our clues around Trafalgar Square before heading off to Hamley’s to collect our prize. The adventure trails are aimed at kids of around 5-9 years, which I would say is about right. (We did the trail with our boys who are 4, 5 and 7)
Download the free Super 4 adventure trails at super-4.co.uk to embark on a quest – just like the characters do in the programme – for a chance to find the gold. Parents and children can work together to crack the clues and help complete a mission; whilst having a lot of fun and learning along the way.
Over October Half Term and right up to Christmas, young adventurers have the chance to find the limited edition hidden treasure across all four trails. Print or download the free maps to your smartphone or tablet to help you find where the gold figures may be hidden.
There are four different trails, each based on one of the main Super 4 characters:
Ruby’s Telescope Trouble
Help Ruby remember which sights she saw through her telescope when she visited London. Located around Trafalgar Square, this trail will require you to stay alert and unscramble a tricky word. The word is something that Ruby likes to see on ALL her adventures!
Gene and the Seven Dials
On Gene’s trail, agents will need to work out a numeric code to access the Chameleon Vehicle which has been locked up by Dr. X! Trace the seven dials of Covent Garden and discover clues on each of the streets. The single digit answers to these clues will eventually combine to provide the secret numeric code to free the Chameleon.
Alex and the Cave Quest
The third trail joins Alex on a quest to discover the secret location of his missing horses, which have been stolen and hidden in a cave by The Black Baron. On the route via Marble Arch and Hyde Park, you will need to visit specific locations to find the clues. The answers to each clue will help Alex eliminate one cave from the picture of Kingsland to ultimately expose The Black Baron’s hiding place.
Twinkle and the Four Squares
Or why not help forgetful fairy Twinkle remember her magic spell word? On Twinkle’s trail, visit clues marked on a map and discover the secret word at each one. Cross off the letters of each answer and rearrange to discover Twinkle’s magic spell word.
So far, we have tried Ruby’s trail – perhaps we will try more soon!
Even if gold is not found on the day, every child can win a new Super 4 toy set and claim a special reward. The first four completed puzzles to be submitted on each day during October Half Term will receive a Super 4 toy set. Also, every child will receive exclusive Super 4 collectible stickers in return for a completed puzzle. These rewards can be collected at Hamleys on Regent Street.
Brand new for this year, the PLAYMOBIL-inspired CITV series Super 4 toy sets are now available to buy. Shaped around the different worlds of PLAYMOBIL (Pirates, Fairies, Knights and Top Agents), Super 4 follows the adventures of four heroes Alex, Gene, Ruby and Twinkle with new toys to complement the TV series.
