Playmobil: 4288 Laundry room
Our little one has recently got into Playmobil and so now has various random sets bought for her from us and the rest of her family. One set which has been bought as part of the house/mansion set is this laundry room complete with ironing board, washing machine, vacuum cleaner, washing line and more.
This set is on Amazon at the moment for £11.83 though I have seen the set for around £9.00 which makes it one of the cheaper room sets from Playmobil.
The set only comes with one adult figure, though the figure can interact with all the items included which simply adds to the fun. Everything from the figure to the small towels which are included are very well made and suitable for children aged 3 to 4 years plus.
As well as the items mentioned above, you will also find some smaller items, some of which are very small and easily lost. These items may also be a problem with younger babies around due to their size. These items include a couple of towels which are reasonably thick for what they are and well proportioned to the other larger items, though still quite small, and some pegs which are even smaller! We have already lost the pegs to our set unfortunately, though when they were still with the set, they attached the towels to the washing line much better than I thought they would. Other slightly larger items include a washing basket, some plastic cleaning bottles, an iron and some shelves.
Everything is interactive as I said above! The female figure can hold items such as the iron and items such as the washing machine opens its doors to allow children to put the towels inside, something of which my little one loves to do.
The main colours to the set are pale greens and whites and really brighten up the Playmobil house wonderfully.
My little one loves this set and it is possibly one of my favorite sets which can be used with the house/mansion.
I have to say this is a fabulous set, my daughter had it for Christmas unknown to her I had put it on her wish list to friends and family. I'm glad I did.
I like a set that is worth the money and this certainly is, it's priced about £9 to £12 in toy stores.
Playmobil is well made, I love the fact that it's collectable and it all works together, I also like that the figures can all hold items and actually look like they are doing the thing or job they are doing.
So with this set comes; a washing machine, a few towels, pegs, a washing line, laundry basket, vacum cleaner, shelves with little bottles and cleaning bits a peg basket, a lady character and an ironing board and tiny little iron which the character can hold - we like to get Dad to do the ironing!!! that is my only concern is that the set comes with a mum which is a bit old fashioned now although I reckon most (not all!) women I know seem to do the laundry!!! lol!
It's such a cute set, my daughter loves putting the towels in the washing machine and then pegging them out - she's copying mum of course!!! the pegs actually peg onto the washing line and in true playmobil style the iron fits lovely in ANY characters hand from the farmer to the ice cream man!! the vacum cleaner can also be held and pushed around.
I love the bright colours in this set, they seem to be brightening their sets up a bit and using more vibrant colours I've noticed.
The only possible down could be that the pegs get lost they are very tiny also they could be dangerous if you have very tiny children in the house I guess they can be put away out of reach until they're a little older
This set has also been accosted by the Sylvanian family in our household! especially the use of the washing machine and washing line for the Sylvanian family clothes!!!
