Are you a fan of Disney characters? Is your child?
I am a big fan of Disney characters. I’d like to say my favorites are the characters from the Winnie the Pooh franchise, but when I think about it further I like most Disney characters. It’s hard not to.
I do have a Winnie the Pooh inspired tattoo on my ankle. I’ve had it for 25+ years. My husband calls me “Hunny,” and intentionally spells it that way too. I have a honey pot with bees flying around it on my ankle, similar to a Winnie the Pooh honey pot, with the word “Hunny” on it.
If you are a fan of Disney and would love to share your love of them with your child, check out the new Disney inspired playsets from PLAYMOBIL.
These are PLAYMOBIL’s first license in their 1.2.3. toddler portfolio, with each of six new playsets featuring each either Mickey and Minnie Mouse or Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Tigger. Sets invite youngsters to discover a world of adventure and learning fun.
Each of the playsets incorporates multiple educational features based on the three connected learning stages that support a toddler’s development such as learning shapes and colors and developing their fine motor skills. They’re also great for storytelling and three-dimensional thinking. Plus, they are from PLAYMOBIL, so you know they are quality made products.
I was sent some of the sets to review. I received the following.
I love this set! It’s so cute!
This set comes with both Piglet and Pooh. Both characters can sit and stand. They can also be sued with other sets.
The tree house door open and closes.
There are two chairs and a table for Pooh and Piglet to set at. You’ll notice that they are shaped differently (square and triangle). There is also a round hunny pot. Those shapes can be sorted through the top of the tree house.
I love that idea. The shapes also come out through the door in the bottom of the tree house, as seen above.
In addition, there is a swing on the side of the tree that the characters can swing on.
There is so much a child can see and do with this playset.
I love that kids can use this as a sorter. My kids LOVED their sorting toys. I think many kids do. It not only helps children to recognize shapes, but there is also a “cause and effect” element to it. Children put the shape in the top (cause) and it pops out from the bottom (effect).
This set comes with an adorable Winnie the Pooh character and a wobbly hunny pot.
Pooh can stand and sit.
Children can place Pooh into the hunny pot and watch him wobble back and forth. So simple yet so cute.
Pooh can be used with other playsets too.
This cute little set features a Mickey Mouse character and a sun that makes a rattling sound when shaken.
This set is great for helping with fine motor skills. Mickey can be removed from the sun. A child can take him in/out of the sun and have Mickey stand/sit as well.
The sun can spin around when Mickey is inside of it or not.
The Mickey character can be used with other sets too.
This set comes with a Pooh character as well as a Tigger. Both characters can sit and stand and can be used with other playsets.
There is a slide on the side of the garden mound that the characters can slide down.
The back of the set (sorry, I forgot to take a photo of it) is a cave where Tigger can hide (Pooh too).
This set comes with “sticks” with honey bees on them. Kids can place them inside the hunny pots, press down on them, and they pop out. This is another great way to teach cause and effect. Kids will also be delighted and laugh when they pop out because it’s a fun surprise for them to see.
There is so much to see and do with this set.
This set comes with blocks that can be stacked to create a rainbow. Please note that the set is in perfect condition. I just stacked the rainbow the wrong way and didn’t realize it until after the photo was taken. You can see below that the rainbow does look perfectly fine when stacked correctly.
Children can have fun stacking the rainbow blocks. They don’t have to create a rainbow if they want (referring to the square pieces).
This set comes with two “cars” with wheels that children can drive around with Mickey and Minnie inside.
Both Mickey and Minnie can stand and sit.
This set comes with a “cloud” that the cars can drive over. There is also a secret door in the cloud that Mickey and Minnie can hide behind.
The back of the cloud also has “steps” (for lack of a better description) that children can make Mickey and Minnie “step” or sit on.
They remind me of raindrops. I’m not sure if that is what they are suppose to be or not.
As you can see, there is a lot a child can do with this fun playset.
I like this set because it reminds me of a toy my kids had when they were little. I’m referring to the pieces that connect the front of the train to the cloud. They “pop” off each other. For the life of me I can’t remember the name of the toy.
Children can pop all the pieces on/off to create a train ride any way they’d like. they can use all the pieces or a few of the pieces, and it can be configured in many different ways.
The “ride” moves too. It has wheels under the train and cloud pieces.
Mickey and Minnie can sit or stand. They can also be used with other playsets.
