Great for imaginative role play for 4+,
This review is from: Playmobil Horse & Pony Ranch (Toy)
Between my 4 year old daughter and my 7 year old son, we have a wide range of playmobil sets from farming to racing to construction. They are always well made, interesting to play with, and full of even the tiniest details. This one however is one of my favorites (and my daughters too :-). Of course playmobil is extremely conscious of every detail...and you will get tiny pieces that you can determine for yourself whether to include them now or later or never. This goes really well with our other farm/barn set. We set up our farm barn and this pony farm and we have a whole scene of imaginative play to go crazy with. Now, it does come apart if you are not careful to move it properly. We assemble and disassemble it on and off, and can keep the assembled farm up on the shelf where it also LOOKS cute as a display. Playmobil is one of my favorite toys for its ability to role play imaginatively. AND it has no bells and whistles...just good ol'fashion fun. When my son was younger he didn't do "role play" as much as my daughter does...so playmobil wasn't as much fun for him in that regards. He enjoyed his racing and construction pieces for the sheer ability to take apart everything and put it all back together (he's our little builder). 3 year olds of course can play with this but it may tend to fall apart easier with little hands that aren't as careful, and may require an adult to reassemble at that age. This is a great gift for a 4+ aged child who enjoys imaginative role play.
