Mixed Review: Adult vs. Child
on May 5, 2013
From an adults point of view:
The pieces are of high quality but many of them are extremely small and easily lost. I tried to get my daughter to keep all the pieces together in one spot until the entire box was opened and this proved to be futile. Therefore, pieces disappeared before the entire ensemble was revealed. The cardboard backdrop was difficult to set-up, took up space, and a pain to store so I threw it out. My daughter wasn't interested in it anyway.
From a child's point of view:
My 4 yr. old daughter is obsessed with dinosaurs and extremely excited to receive this gift. I am sure that she would rate this a 5. She couldn't wait to open a new door each day to see what surprise was hidden beneath. Of course, she wanted to open all the doors at once. However, she displayed disappointment quite often as many of the pieces were "parts" of other objects in the set and didn't appear to be anything immediately recognizable. This would go on for days. PlayMobile would have been better off mixing up the "whole" objects with the "parts" objects to prevent this. After the set was completely open, many of the pieces had "disappeared." However, my daughter did save her favorites (the dinosaur, motorcycle, dino egg).
