Disclosure: I received Playmobil samples to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
It all started back in my kids early days, with the purple dinosaur and then moving on through different TV shows. My kids have always shown a strong love for dinosaurs. A fun example would be my kids favourite vacation activity. They love to play at a dinosaur themed mini golf park when we go to Ontario. This is a fun Mini golf that has huge dinosaur replicas all over the course. It even features a volcano that “erupts” on a regular basis. So it should come as no surprise that the idea of receiving a Dino themed toy is definitely something that goes over well in our house.
Playmobil has launched a new line of play-sets called The Explorers series, that includes a number of the most popular Dinos and some great sets and accessories.
Hidden Temple With T-Rex
Join the explorers as they embark on a new adventure on Dino island with the hidden Temple with T-Rex. Once you discover the Temple, use the ancient structure as your research base before heading out to explore the island with the help of the secret map.
- Simply rub the map to reveal a hidden path where x marks the spot!
- When back at the base, protect the team from the unfriendly T-Rex or enemy explorers with the functioning laser gun.
- Beware of that T-Rex! his movable arms, legs, and jaw allow for realistic motion and make him one intimidating Dino!
- Use the functioning pulley to bring needed equipment up to the top floor
My youngest daughter enjoyed testing out the hidden Temple Playmobil set. It took us 45 minutes to build. She loves how true to life the T-Rex looks. Her favourite part was using the flashlight to reveal the cool glow-in-the-dark features, such as the ruins crystal eyes and the jungle plant! We love that Playmobil toys are a great tool for helping a child’s imagination grow.
Enemy Airboat with Raptors
Watch out for the Enemy Airboat with Raptor. These enemy explorers are only interested in capturing dinos for profit, and they use the air-boat to transport them back to their base. The foldable platform makes it easy for them to lead the raptors into the boat’s cage. While one evil explorer sits in the captain’s seat, the other keeps an eye on the captured dinos. The boat floats and can be upgraded with an underwater motor (sold separately.) Set includes two figures, two dinosaurs, a removable cage, grappling hook, gas can, and other accessories.
