With 4 children in the house, Easter can sometimes resemble a chocolate egg factory. In an attempt to cut down on this a little, we tend to buy the children an alternative Easter gift – a small toy or a DVD for example. This year they have been lucky enough to receive the Playmobil Easter Eggs.
Priced at £6.99 each, these are in line with our typical Easter spend, and I think they actually offer great value for money. Each plastic egg shell contains a full Playmobil play set, and there are 4 to choose from. Max was thrilled with his Vikings set. He found it easy to put all the pieces together with minimal help required, and was ready to play within minutes. Everything is compatible with our current Playmobil sets, offering great scope for play.
Eliza opened her Easter Egg to reveal the Fairies set. I was surprised by how much there is inside each egg – this particular one contains 2 figures with wings and wands, a magic cauldron and a flower with owl.
The other 2 eggs contained a One-to One basketball game and a Vet with Foals. Not too many pieces that it takes ages to get up and running, but a really good value for money play set, and a lovely alternative to chocolate Easter Eggs. The eggs do come inside a cardboard sleeve which pictures which set you are buying, so if you want to keep it a surprise just be aware of this. The plastic egg shells are perfect for storing the pieces in when not in use, and we noticed they do all have a little slot on the top. Max was very keen to use his as a piggy bank!
If you are looking for an alternative to chocolate this Easter, I highly recommend the Playmobil Easter Eggs. Fantastic value, and likely to last much longer than chocolate too!
