Product Description

Ahoy, matey! Your favorite Playmobil toys have come to life for the very first time, in an all-new swashbuckling adventure and you’re invited to join them! You’ll have a treasure chest full of fun with seven-year-old Jack and his big sister Amelia as they stow away on a pirate ship headed for the mysterious Pirate Island — a place filled with treasure and curious creatures. Can Jack and Amelia stay one step ahead of a bunch of wacky skeletons and get to the treasure before the pirates do?

Amazon.com

"Playmobil toys are a longtime children's favorite, and now those little plastic people with the hands that grip are coming to life in their very own pirate movie. A trip to Grandma and Grandpa's house becomes an adventure at sea for 7-year-old Jack and his big sister Amelia when they're magically transported onto a pirate ship headed out on a treasure hunt. After the captain discovers the two stowaways, it looks like their journey will be a short one, but Amelia's quick thinking just as a legendary octopus approaches the ship earns her and Jack appointments as deck hands. Always the impulsive one, Jack is excited to join the pirates' search for hidden treasure, but Amelia, with her highly developed sense of right and wrong and more cautious nature, is less enthusiastic. Nonetheless, the pair sets off after the pirates when they land on Skull Island, in hopes of finding the treasure before the pirates do. In the end, it will require the combined efforts of the children and the pirates to ensure that everyone gets off the island safely. Musical moments are sprinkled throughout the pirates' journey and feature both Amelia and a quirky pirate rock band called ""The Play It Real Rockers.""

This DVD features two versions of the movie: ""Captain Gruff's Favorite Movie,"" which runs an uninterrupted 50 minutes, and an interactive version in which viewers choose between multiple paths at key intervals throughout the film--there are a whopping 27 potential story combinations. The viewer's choices alter the path of the movie, sometimes only slightly and at other times so significantly that they completely change the story's outcome. No matter which path viewers choose, there are important lessons about dealing with temptation, overcoming fears, and doing what's right. The Secret of Pirate Island isn't the best pirate movie on the market, but it's entertaining and kids will love its Playmobil stars and the opportunity to guide the characters' actions. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi "

Format: DVD
The toy line known as Playmobil produced by Germany-based company Brandstatter Group has been a popular toyline in the United States and other countries since 1975. The toys have been one of the most innovative toylines for children as kids can buy toys based on modern jobs or athletes to pirates, knights, princesses and more.

An example of the popular playmobil toyline toys in the market

And to celebrate the popularity of the toyline, the first major DVD release titled "The Secret of Pirate Island" based on the toyline will be released under the playmobil interactive name.

In this DVD, the film revolves around a family which includes seven-year-old Jack and his older sister as they visit their grandparents. Of course, the area where their grandparents live leads to a portal where the children can experience adventures. In this latest release, the playmobil theme revolves around the pirate characters.

But in this case, using your remote control, the viewer can select which adventure to participate in. The decision can lead to an early ending to the film or a further continuation to the story. Of course, since this is a children's DVD, even if a child choose a short ending, the child will get another chance to select the other ending or if they choose not to choose anything at all, the film will automatically select the longer, continuing version. But what's so fun about this release is that there is 27 story combinations. So, for the most part, children will enjoy the chance to choose their storyline and possibly see the toy characters that they may be familiar with.

For parents, there are two versions that you can select on the menu.

Format: DVD
Saw this in a Red box and noticed that it said "Interactive" so I got it for my son 3.5 yrs old. He was really excited to see it and had fun with the pirate theme. Even though the theme was pirates there was nothing too scary in there to make him nervous and the colors and animation were simple but not cheap.

It took him a bit to understand that when he watches it again it can change but once there he really got into it and was excited to try choosing which way to go. We do wish there was even more of the branching stories in the middle. My wife and I even got pulled into the branching story trying to figure out how many diverse paths were put on the DVD. We found ourselves trying to convince our boy to do a certain choice so WE could make sure we saw everything there. For him he just got really excited everytime a choice came up. He would scramble up off the couch standing in front of the TV and he didn't care if he chose the same one again.

Good family fun. Hope there are more to come for all sorts of age levels.

Good work!

Summary: This DVD surpisingly turned out to be one of the best buys. It's lots of fun, for all the whole family. Our 5yo is singing,... something he didn't like doing before, and he's learning a lot of new words and even to our suprise using these new words in the right context at several other moments during the day or in the week. Which at times gives us a lot of laughs, since they will come out so totaly unexpected,.. you can't help to burst into laughs. This DVD is his current favorite. And we suspect it's going to be for a long time. So yes, at first, the animations do seem to lack some detail, and it does look a bit too simplistic, especially at the beginning, but in the end, all that doesn't really matter, you won't even notice it anymore, and it's lots of fun for the kids and the whole family.

If at 1st you don't like this DVD, give it a 2nd chance. Let the kids decide wheter is't good or not. The kids age probaby is also a big factor. Our son is 5, he loves it, and is learning from it. He doesn't care for the less detailed animations at times during the movie. I'm not sure how 7 or 8 year olds will like it. Probably a bit, or a lot less, then 4, 5 and 6 year olds. But our 10 year old daughter also enjoyed it.

And now for our experience:
Bought this movie for our 5yo because he was showing interest in pirates everytime he saw a toy pirate ad on tv (or any ad with a pirate in it). So I wanted to suprise him. At 1st I Wasn't quite sure because the pictures seemed a bit simple. We don't have any playmobil toys, for the same reason. They seem a bit (too?) 'simple', so we never bother to get him playmobil. But I decided to take a risk and get him this DVD. Simply because I wanted him to experience other toys, and dvd's then, trains, cars, caterpillars, ect.

Unfortunately, I'm one of those people who have long since lost their DVD player remote and didn't realize that you need one to "interact" with this DVD. I bought it thinking my son would get a kick out of it only to discover that we can't use it yet.
