We have had a Playmobil takealong castle in the past and have been really disappointed in it, so I was interested to see if this set withstood the whirlwind that is MIniMad.
I love the idea of takealong toys, the fact that you can pack up all the parts in them for safekeeping appeals to the OCD in me, but they have to be workable for play first and formost. The Knights Shield Playset (4217) £24.99 is a real multi facited play set. Not only do you have a castle and four knights, a horse and weponds, but you also have a child sized sheild and soft sword, which went down a real treat with Mini.
This is a solid you, it doesn’t have moveable parts on the castle, but that is great by me, less to break. It is fantastic value for money and as I said truly multifaceted. The storage element is large enough to get all the parts in and more. So perfect for taking anywhere with you. This has moved from room to room easily.
We weren’t keen:
We couldn’t find anything to pick part on this take along set, it was a real hit.
If you have a child that loved to dress up, but also loves knights and castles, well this is the toy for you. It is the perfect price for a main birthday present at £25 and Mini was delighted to receive it for his a nd it has been played with most days. It’s ingenious design makes for both dress up and imaginative play too.

We love Playmobil ! My toy shelves are being overtaken by it. My son is obsessed – we have two large crates and a shelf designated ‘Playmobil only’ trouble is, the aeroplane is a bit big to fit on there !!

I haven’t gotten my little ones Playmobil yet, I felt they were a bit young as it always looks like loads of little bits. However this looks great. A definite on the Christmas list x
