Just in time for the summer PLAYMOBIL has launched a couple of brand new water park themed playsets. We received the Water Park with Slides set (6669) and it comes with everything little ones need to have their own little pool party. The water park includes one adult and child figure, two jumbo slides, a pool with a pool tube, a rotating octopus to create the pool waves and many more accessories.
I picked up the set at the post office while our 5-year-old was at school and our toddler and I spent the next 30 minutes building it. There are a lot of tiny parts and building of the set has to be done by an older child or an adult. I think I could have done it a bit faster if I was on my own but I appreciated the “help” my little one was provided, he was happy to help pass me pieces and loved playing with the box as seen above.
I love all of the little details and parts in the Water Park set and all the things the kids can do while they are playing. I think their favourite feature is the fact that you can put water in the pool and they can create their own wave pool for their figurines, slip and slide down the slides and just splash around.
Since it was raining lots last week I set up the set in the living room with a big towel underneath and they were happy to splash around together. I see us using the set a lot during the summer, we can take it to the backyard and put it on top of the grass so they can play with water and get as messy as they want, a great summer toy!
Below is also a short video showing some of the features of the Water Park and our boys (5 and 2 1/2 years old) having fun playing together:
The PLAYMOBIL Water Park is recommended for kids ages 4 and up and it is available at most retail stores and independent toy retailers (MSRP: $79.99).
