We are delighted to be asked to stay on the Playmobil Playologists programme for another year. Both Imogen and Joseph loved Playmobil and little Joseph’s Christmas list is already 90% Playmobil. Over the course of the next 12 months we’ll be reviewing some of their amazing toys and showing you sneak peeks of their ever so popular seasonal products including their advent calendars and Easter eggs.
Our first job this year is to tell you all about two news items to the City Action range that the Kiddywinks received in the Summer holidays, The Coast Guard Station with Lighthouse (5539) and Rescue Boat with Water Hose (5540).
As you can tell, Imogen and Joseph were very pleased with Playmobil’s choice of toys for them and they got stuck straight in assembling the Rescue Boat.
Imogen really enjoyed the assembly, following the instructions whilst directing Joseph to find the correct parts, occasionally allowing him to place lights and aerials onto the boat. There are three figures that come with the boat as well as a host of accessories, first aid kit, life ring, walkie talkies and a working winch to pull other to safety.
Joseph’s favourite thing about the Playmobil Rescue Boat has to be the water cannon. There’s a small water tank and pump at the back of the boat which is connected by a hose that runs across the length of the boat to the front of the boat. Press down on the pump to spray water – perfect for fire fighting!
Next up is the Coast Guard Station with Light House. This needs a little more assembly than the Rescue Boat and Imogen and Joseph did need a small amount of adult help to put it together.
The Coast Guard Station comes with five figures, a rubber dinghy and loads and loads of accessories from a fire extinguisher to surfboard and flippers to emergency medical equipment.
There’s a two level command centre and observation tower and a fully functioning lighthouse beacon to warn others of it’s presence.
Around the back of the station is a working winch to pull the boat in and up into the station and there’s a ramp at the front to launch in from when it needs to respond to an emergency.
The Kiddywinks have had so much fun with both the Rescue Boat and Coast Guard station and they’ve played with them creatively using their imaginations to create some fabulous scenarios to act out with their new toys. As an added bonus both of the boats will float and double up as amazing bath toys. They can also both be used with the Playmobil underwater motor which is only £6.50 and will add a great deal of fun to both of these playsets.
The Playmobil Coast Guard Centre and Rescue Boat are both available from Playmobil.co.uk and are priced at £49.99 and £34.99 respectively.
