Playmobil 4491: Rabbit Pen
We have just started purchasing Playmobil items for our little one as Playmobil has always been highly recommended to us by our friends with youngsters as well as those who had sets when they were young. We found that a lot of Playmobil sets are rather expensive, so to start our little one off, we have begun to buy the smaller sets so over time the collection will grow without breaking our bank!
We picked this set up for just over £6.00 which seems to be the average price of this set. This particular set is one of the smaller sets which can be played as a stand-alone set which is great.
This set comprises of an adult farmer, a two tiered rabbit hutch, a selection of vegetables in baskets and five rabbits.
The rabbit hutch comes unassembled, though it is easy to put together and literally takes minutes. It is slightly fiddly, though, so it is best for an adult to put it together. As mentioned above, the hutch is two stories high, each little compartment big enough to store the rabbits comfortably, though when you want to get the rabbits back out again, you do need to tip the hutch forward as the whole hutch is quite deep. Little fingers have an easier job of getting to the rabbits, though if the need arises, there is no chance of the hutch breaking apart when tilted as it is all put together quite snugly. On the front of each compartment is a silver door which opens and closes with ease.
The five rabbits are well made though do lack in detail a bit. There are three larger rabbits and two baby rabbits in the set.
The farmer is an average adult size Playmobil figure with typical farmer clothes with the typical movable arms, legs and head, though the head does not twist as much as other figures due to the beard on his face! He also wears a large yellow hat which is removable.
The baskets are small and each contains a selection of vegetables easily recognisable by the child.
My little one thoroughly enjoys playing with this little set, though we do have many times where the bunnies escape under the sofa! It does not bother her that the bunnies have minimal detail as they are still fully recognisable as rabbits.
I think that this is a lovely little set, though perhaps not the best set of the bunch. For £6.00 it is a decent set and worth buying for little ones who like rabbits.
