Review | Playmobil Super 4

Playmobil Super 4

Playmobil is a big favourite in our house, and the Fire Chief’s Car and Playmobil Pirates are played with most days. They seem to bridge the different ages well, with Gemma, Jacob and Max able to enjoy them equally. 

We were recently sent the FulguriX from the Playmobil Super 4 range, which includes the Technopolis craft, disc shooter, detachable drone and Agent Gene and Franz figures. Max originally thought this was a spacecraft, and although it is described as a flying car, it really could be anything your child wants it to be!

As with most Playmobil, it is pretty simple to make, and although this is recommended for children over 5, Max was able to put it together with help. There are only a few small pieces, and once built, I would say it is suitable for most pre-schoolers.

The 4 engine thrusters can be rotated around, and the front and rear windscreens can be folded up and down to take figures and items in and out. The front windscreen opens smoothly, but the rear is more difficult – we found that you needed to put your fingers inside and push it open from underneath, which is a bit fiddly. It could do with some sort of button or handle to make opening easier. Underneath the bonnet are 4 fuel tanks, which can be taken in and out, and there is a drone with a detachable prop stand, which is ideal for extending play. 

Max’s favourite part of this set is the detachable disc shooter. There are 3 small discs – one fits into the shooter, and you can hang the 2 spares on the side. The discs are released by pulling 2 levers towards you, and Max is able to manage this himself without help. The discs travel a long way, so make sure you shoot them in a spacious area!

This is a fantastic addition to our Playmobil collection, and one that has been an instant hit with all the children. I can see this getting years of play, and being used alongside other toys to create imaginary worlds and play scenes.

    That would be a big hit here, too! My son loves his Playmobil toys, and they are so durable.

    We love Playmobil! There is a Playmobil Fun Park not far from us which my kids love, and they always want to take all the toys home! Our latest acquisition was the space rocket and space ship – brilliant. My pre schoolers would love this flying car. Kate #TriedTested

    This looks great. We are Playmobil fans here too and my son loves all things that resemble cars and would love it more if it shoots discs out! Could well make it on to our ‘to look for’ list. #TriedTested

    We’ve not had playmobil yet. Might look into it now. My little one is almost 2 now, so will probably like it.

    We love Plamobil, especially my eldest! I love how it makes them occupied (& quiet) for a long time haha. #triedandtested

    What a great toy. We love toys that you can spend time building. I think it’s the investment in time that’s a big hit with us, it’s all quiet for ages and then he gets to demolish it and build it again. Great review x

    This looks like so much fun! I can’t wait till my two have a little more patience with sets like these!
