Fun on the Farm with the PLAYMOBIL Barn with Silo

Fun on the Farm with the PLAYMOBIL Barn with Silo

As I have mentioned before, I am the granddaughter of farmers. I spent many happy days of my childhood running around my grandparents’ farms. My kids also love going to farms, especially during the fall harvest season. My kiddos also love exploring imaginative play. I previously reviewed the Dump Truck and Excavator from PLAYMOBIL, PLAYMOBIL Carry Cases, and PLAYMOBIL Take Along Haunted House. I love all the awesome toy sets from the brand. When recently offered the chance to review the new Barn with Silo from PLAYMOBIL in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add to our toy box with great excitement from my oldest daughter and son.

Evaluation

A word of warning to all parents and caregivers about the PLAYMOBIL Barn with Silo: The set contains 215 pieces and takes about an hour to assemble. While I found all the small pieces a little cumbersome, I did appreciate that the set came with a tool that made assembly easier. I tried putting a few of the small connectors into the larger parts without the tool but quickly discovered the task impossible. I also thought that some of the smaller pieces on the bottom of the barn could have come as single larger pieces. I did like that I did not have to put any stickers on this particular set, which I have had to do with other toys from PLAYMOBIL. The instruction manual was also easy to follow. Overall, I found putting the barn and silo together pretty easy even if time-consuming.

As soon as the package arrived in the mail, my two oldest kids immediately begged me to set the new toy up. My preschooler son played with the animals and farmers while I put the buildings together. As with other toys from PLAYMOBIL, the barn and silo set are made of high-quality materials. My children are often rough on their toys (especially when fighting over a piece with each other), but so far the plastic pieces show very little wear and tear. Both my six-year-old daughter and four-year-old son love playing pretend with the farm set. My son especially loves playing with the human figures and enjoys using the pitchfork to spear the feed for the animals. My daughter loves the animals and has already asked for additional country sets to increase her barnyard menagerie. As with the other sets with which my kids already play, I am very much impressed with the Barn and Silo and will definitely consider buying more PLAYMOBIL sets for my children in the future!

Final Verdict

PLAYMOBIL strives to encourage creative and imaginative play. The 215-piece Barn with Silo comes with a barn, silo, two farmers, animals, and other farm accessories. The large toy set is reasonably priced for the size. The only real downside is the assembly time. The toy took me an hour to set up because of all the small pieces and parts. However, my two oldest children love the farm toy and already want more animals to add to the barnyard. PLAYMOBIL toys are a perfect addition to any toy box, and my children are extremely excited about the country fun to be had with the PLAYMOBIL Barn with Silo.
