In case you missed our news yesterday, we’ve been selected as one of Playmobil’s Playologist families this year and will be keeping you up to date with reviews and news from Playmobil.

This month we’ve got started with a couple of great toys from the City Action range – both focused on water rescue.

Today I’ll be reviewing the Playmobil City Action Coast Guard Station with Lighthouse.

(Read yesterday’s review of the Playmobil City Action Rescue Boat which pairs up really well with this set)

Playmobil City Action Coast Guard Station with Lighthouse


The City Action Coast Guard Station comes with a dingy boat, 5 Playmobil characters, a coastal station with look out control tower and a launching area for the boat – via the working doors in the coast guard station. It also has a working lighthouse (requires 2 x AAA batteries) which is a fun feature.

As with the City Action Rescue Boat, it was easier for an adult to complete the assembly of the set and once made the coast guard station is pretty sturdy and can be moved easily from room to room if required.

There is great variety in the Playmobil figures included in the set. Our favourite is the little surfer – how cute is he!

The boys also love all of the little accessories like the diving googles that some of the other characters can wear.

This set combines very well with the City Action rescue boat, and there are other items in the City Action range that would also compliment it really well so you can expand your collection and your play over time.
