If you’re looking for alternatives to the typical chocolate Easter eggs this year, PLAYMOBIL have a great range available. We were sent a PLAYMOBIL egg for each of the boys, and they really enjoyed the concept of these. They will last much longer than a chocolate egg as the PLAYMOBIL figures and toys inside can be added to their existing collections, and they even enjoy playing with the plastic egg too.
The PLAYMOBIL eggs that the boys got are from the city life, sports and action, and pirates ranges, as you can see above.
Each one comes with a large bright and colourful plastic Easter egg that opens up to reveal the packet of PLAYMOBIL, along with a small instructions leaflet to put together the scene.
Let me show you the PLAYMOBIL sets included in each of the eggs. They all come with one PLAYMOBIL figure, and some accessories.
PLAYMOBIL City Life egg
This one is a zoo keeper with an alpaca! The figure comes with a rake and some plants to hold and feed to the animal, along with a bucket and more vegetation for the alpaca to eat.
PLAYMOBIL Sports & Action egg
This one is great for kids who are into football. The football player figure comes with a little goal and football, and can move it’s leg to aim and shoot into the goal. You also get a pack of stickers so that you can choose the number for your PLAYMOBIL figure to wear on his shirt and customise it in that way.
PLAYMOBIL Pirates egg
This set is a pirate on a treasure hunt and comes with some cool features like a rotating treasure map, and a snake. This set took the longest to put together out of the three, but still it was very quick and easy!
There will also be a mermaid with seahorses, and an easter bunny school set available this Easter.
My kids love these PLAYMOBIL eggs, and I think they are a great idea! My boys are fans of watching surprise egg videos on YouTube, so they really liked the plastic eggs that these came in, as well as the toys inside. You can play with them by putting in different PLAYMOBIL figures and then gettting each other to guess what is inside, before opening them up. Since the eggs are very durable and hard plastic you can even wrap them up in Playdough to make a playdough surprise egg too. They are much better for this than the smaller plastic eggs you can find in craft stores. You can also use the eggs to store the PLAYMOBIL sets back inside to keep them tidy once you’ve finished playing.
I would recommend these particularly for kids around 3-8 years old.
