PLAYMOBIL Take Along Sets

Making Fun a Sure Bet!

Last updated on April 25th, 2021 at 11:52 pm

Not many bloggers I know personally have kids as young as mine. It seems almost alien to have kids by 30 these days, something I see reflected in my peers and the opportunities coming my way. So when things do come in with a 3-year old and 1-year old in mind, I feel it gives a fairly unique opportunity to show things from the perspective of our young family—and that’s precisely the case with PLAYMOBIL!

Let me tell you—it pays to be a blogger’s kid!

Woe be unto you in Casa de Palmer if you come to the door and my eldest doesn’t know you—in his mind, couriers are the only other people to ring our doorbell, so you’d best not come empty-handed!

I do sometimes worry whether I’m spoiling these little guys, though. I didn’t think much of it at first, but recent events have sent me down other paths. Like when other Moms come over for playdates and mention how many toys we have. Or when the eldest puts two and two together, asking whether people “give me a lot of stuff.” Which in turn means that I need to do more with less, and make sure that the toys they do have are great ones.

That in mind, PLAYMOBIL sent along one of their PLAYMOBIL Take Along Sets for the boys, letting them discover the bits and pieces found within the PLAYMOBIL 1.2.3 Take Along Farm (MSRP $47.99)!

It’s great for their ages—it’s bright, it’s colourful, the pieces are large and rounded… they’re city boys getting familiar with what it takes to run a farm, and loving every moment of it!

And when they’re done? All they have to do is pack the pieces inside, fold up the floor, and grab the carrying handle to take their portable farm wherever they want to go!

They even have a set for the older kids—the PLAYMOBIL Take Along Fairy Unicorn Garden (MSRP $32.99) for children aged 4+ whose imaginations are a tad more… developed. You can find either set at most major retail stores and independent toy retailers.

You never truly know whether you’ve succeeded at parenting ’til your kids grow up and you can see the people they’ve become. And that means doing many things you might not like even though you know they’re necessary. Dragging them to the washroom. Forcing them to get to bed. Making sure they eat their greens. We focus so hard on raising the humans we want them to be that we forget to enjoy the ones we have today.

Good thing PLAYMOBIL’s Take Along Sets let you do exactly that.

Bonne chance, tout le monde, and I’ll see you at the next post!

Until then,
