Despite covering news on their toys for quite awhile, PLAYMOBIL is a new thing for us here at Rock Father HQ. As a kid growing up, I always admired the toys but never had any of my own. Now, as a parent, my girls have some, a couple of which came to us direct from the folks at PLAYMOBIL USA for review here on THE ROCK FATHER. The most impressive set that we received is the Playmobil Camp Site (5432) that comes as part of their Summer Fun collection. Recommended for Ages 4-10, this 262-piece set is representative of the detail that Playmobil puts into their sets, allowing children to experience quality, imaginative play in a near-endless world of opportunity. It’s real-life at 3-inch scale.

Please Note: While my youngest daughter is pictured and does partake in toy testing here at HQ, this toy contains extremely small parts (part of how highly-detailed it is), and should absolutely not be played with by children under 3 without absolute supervision.

The German engineering shines on this set, with the pieces crafted of high-quality materials and with precision. Everything fits together perfectly, and even the decals (applying those is my least favorite thing about all toys) are top-notch. With grown-up assisted assembly taking just under an hour, the only knock is a mistake on one of the instruction pages (for which they included a corrected version), and a somewhat confusing direction for stickering the “power box” accessory. 

One of the coolest features? The working shower… that unlike some toys with a water function, actually works! Check out the Instagram video to the left to see it in-action here at Rock Father HQ. The shower is just part of a rest area complex that also has a toilet, two sinks and all the required accessories for cleaning up, like a toothbrush, toothpaste, sponge and more.

There’s a pop-up tent that holds up to four figures (three are included with this set), and the cafe includes a supply shop for everything from snacks to postcards, magazines, ice cream and more – along with an office area, cash register and more. There’s even a bistro set, and a little Razor-style scooter for Playmobil kids to cruise along with.

With so much potential packed into one box, this is a set that comes heartily recommended by my girls and I, so consider this one ROCK FATHER-APPROVED!
