Playmobil 4491 Rabbit Pen
Advantages: Sweet, Works Well, Good Play Appeal
Disadvantages: Rabbits Not Detailed, Hutch A Bit Deep
This Playmobil Rabbit Pen set (4491) retails for around £7 depending on where you buy it from. I don't think it's worth quite £7 to be honest, but if you shop around you'll find it available for slightly less than the retail price from some shops. I think it's a nicely detailed little set and that it has some play appeal on it's own at least. It doesn't just have to be bought as an addition to a larger set, so that in part helps to justify the price tag despite the small box.
Inside the box, this set comes 'flat packed' and you need to assemble the rabbit pen before you can play with it. It's not difficult to do, but it does require a certain amount of strength to force the pieces together, so it's a task that needs to be done by an adult rather than a child. If you're giving this as a present, it's possible to put it together and then put it back in the box and reseal it with a tab of tape if desired. Makes it available for instant play when opened!
The play pen features two little compartments which open up so that the rabbits can be tucked inside. Wouldn't want Playmobil rabbits running amok after all. The insides are a little deep really as it means you have to tip the hutch forwards to get the rabbits out, unless you're a seriously young child with seriously tiny fingers that is. On the plus side, the cage doors open and close with ease and line up perfectly too.
Also included is an old farmer, complete with a little removable straw hat, and a selection of vegetables for the rabbits to eat in a little Playmobil basket. These veggies are all nicely detailed and you can tell immediately what they're all supposed to be. Then there are the five rabbits too, a large black, grey and white one, and two smaller brown bunnies too. These aren't as detailed as Playmobil animals usually are, but they suffice I think.
Not the best set ever but one to enthuse little rabbit fans I think. I like that it has some play appeal all on it's own, but I think it's really intended to be an addition to a larger farm set.
