    More Imaginative Play with the PLAYMOBIL Take Along Western City and Princess Unicorn Carry Case

    I love toys that encourage imaginative play in my children. While screens have a place in learning, I much rather prefer toys that get my kiddos thinking creatively and coming up with their own ideas and stories. I am thus a huge fan of PLAYMOBIL. I previously reviewed the Dump Truck and Excavator from PLAYMOBIL, PLAYMOBIL Carry Cases, PLAYMOBIL Take Along Haunted House, and PLAYMOBIL Barn with Silo. When recently offered the chance to review the new Take Along Western City and Princess Unicorn Carry Case from PLAYMOBIL in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add to our toy box with great excitement from all three of my children.

    Evaluation

    As soon as my package from PLAYMOBIL arrived, my kids eagerly awaited my putting the new playsets together. The Take Along Western City and Princess Unicorn Carry Case come with 97 and 42 pieces. As with the other Carry Case sets from the brand, the Princess Unicorn set was super easy to assemble. Putting together the Western City was also pretty easy. I appreciated the tool that makes assembly of the small connector pieces easier. The stickers were easy to locate and put on. The instruction manuals for both sets were easy to follow. Overall, I found both sets simple to assemble. I really appreciate the carry case of the Princess Unicorn set. All the pieces fit neatly back inside the plastic case for easy storage. I also like that the western buildings fold up for portability and storage.

    All three of my kids absolutely love both the Take Along Western City and Princess Unicorn Carry Case. My toddler immediately grabbed the unicorn and played happily with her new “horsey.” The Princess Unicorn set complements our previous Magical Mermaids Carry Case set. My oldest was especially thrilled with the princesses and unicorn. My two oldest quite enjoy the western city. My family recently returned from a trip to Southern California, and my oldest proudly proclaimed that the Take Along Western City was just like Old Town in San Diego. My only complaint is that the pink carry case of the Princess Unicorn set had a crack on the side near the handle. I must admit that I was a bit surprised with the flaw because I have come to know the high quality of PLAYMOBIL toys, but even the best products can get damaged during shipping. The rest of the plastic pieces, however, show very little wear and tear despite my rough-and-tumble children. As with the other sets that my kids already have, I am very much impressed with both sets and will definitely consider buying more PLAYMOBIL sets for my children in the future!
