Is your child headed to a new school this year? Maybe he is starting Kindergarten and feeling a bit nervous. Is this your first year with your child riding a bus? Playmobil has some wonderful and imaginative toys to help your child transition back to school this year.
The City Life series by Playmobil includes a number of great options that every child would enjoy including a zoo, a mansion, a pet store, a swimming pool, a playground, and the two back to school sets we are featuring today.
The Playmobil School Bus, new in July 2016, is a wonderful vehicle any child would love. The bus is very realistic, and even has working lights on the front and the back of the bus. With a simple push of the button the lights flash for 40 seconds as the driver picks up all of the students. A stop sign can even be opened to remind the cars to stop when the children get off and on the bus. The bus comes with one driver and 3 students with backpacks. There are many seats on the bus so your child can play with other figures, or even give a few animals a bus ride. Batteries are included with this set. The roof of the bus comes off and is the easiest way to get the driver and the students into the bus. At a MSRP of $39.99 this vehicle will be a fun way for your child to enjoy a school bus.
My daughter wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She has been enjoying playing teacher with her Playmobil Take Along School House this summer. Two parts of this school house were her favorite features, the chalkboard and the take along aspect. Writing on a chalkboard and wiping it clean with an eraser, is something she enjoyed doing over and over again. But her favorite thing about this set was how easy it was to put away. Every piece fit right inside the school house and you could just pick it up and go. I can see this set being taken to Grandma’s house, a playdate, or even on a trip! My little teacher played with it for hours. You can really do some great role playing with this schoolhouse if you child has a bit of anxiety about going to school. MSRP for the take along schoolhouse is also $39.99 which is an excellent value and will provide hours of play.
