Blast into the Holidays with Playmobil!

 

One of the hottest new trends for kids’ gift ideas lately has to be those that are nostalgic to the parental units at home. My other half and I have been keen to get toys that we enjoyed as kids. Playmobil Canada has one of the most iconic playsets kids big and small would love to play with: The Ghostbusters™ Firehouse! My family was asked if we would like blasting “ghosts’ out of our home.

Once it was assembled, it looked very impressive! There are three floors of Ghostbusting fun to be had! I think they did a great job of bringing the Firehouse to life to be played with. Play slime can be added to the building or to characters to add to the grit of this playset. Ray, Egon, Louis, and Janine were included to help kids bring the fun of this playset to life. Their adventures could not be complete without a ghost to battle! Playmobil added a Library Ghost for these heroes to battle.

The first floor is the garage. It holds the “Ghost Containment Unit” and room for the Etco-1, The Ghostbusters’ car, to be housed. It is really cute how you are able to slide the ghost trap into the slot and can flip the switch in order to deposit a “ghost” for safe keeping. The best part about this floor is the garage door. It rolls up by pushing or pulling the door handle.

Climbing up the stairs, you reach a floor where work and play are combined for the Ghostbusters. It is a kitchen/lab where these characters can work on the many experiments they conduct to improve their ghost-busting capabilities, can grab a snack, or catch up on the latest news of the day. What I thought was pretty cool was that there is a version of Tobin’s Spirit Guide that the characters can read to figure out how to deal with each ghost they encounter.

The top floor is dedicated to one of the more important and humorous members of the Ghostbusters’ team: Janine! This is her hub where she gathers reports on the latest ghost sighting around New York City (or your home) while being her sassy self. It was so funny to see that a pot was thought of for the leaky roof the Firehouse has. It added to the details Playmobil kept in mind when creating this set.

An added perk to this playset has to be the fireman’s pole! It is great that it can stay in a locked position or can be easily unlocked so the characters can slide into action when the alarm bell sounds warning of a new ghost to be captured.

My kids loved every bit of the Ghostbusters™ Firehouse! They loved trying to blast the librarian ghost so they could trap her in the ghost trap. The sliding pole was a huge success as they kept figures zipping down into action. My daughter also playing with Janine and getting her to be a part of the action.

Playmobil’s Ghostbusters™ Firehouse got the thumb’s up from both of my littles. They loved how interactive aspects of the set and the characters were when playing with them. The multiple floors of fun also a huge hit for them.  The big kids at home loved the little details they added to this set to bring one of our favourite series to life for our kids (and us) to play with! Hours of fun can be had by the family by adding this playset to your home!
