Just yesterday, my youngest asked me about “playing house” as a kid, and which role I would choose. It occurred to me that I couldn’t recall playing house at all! I explained that, since I grew up as an “only child” with older siblings in their teens when I was born, I spent a lot of time immersed in imaginary play with my dolls and play sets. My play-horses and stables were something I spent so much time with (due in part to our family business at the time being a western wear and saddlery store).
So, when I saw this playmobil Pony Farm Birthday theme in my inbox the day after the conversation with my daughter, I decided this is probably something I should get for me, I mean the kids, to keep on hand for little visitors, a babysitting toy bag, and yes…for me.
With 81 pieces (for ages 4+), there’s lots of imaginary play and creativity waiting. From playmobil: “What could be better than a birthday party at the PLAYMOBIL pony farm? This is a great way to spend the big day together with friends and the favourite ponies. To celebrate, there are delicious cupcakes and the table next to the paddock is already festively set. The ponies curiously look over the fence to see what’s on offer. After unwrapping the presents, it’s off to the pony rides, of course. The playset contains three PLAYMOBIL figures, two ponies, a mole, two squirrels, three fence elements, a tree, three tree stumps as seats, presents and many other lovely extras for great birthday parties on the pony farm.”
What if one of the ponies needs to travel? More from playmobil on this other play set: “If a pony needs to go to the vet, it is transported with the spacious Pony Trailer! The little boy carefully accompanies his pony over the ramp into the trailer. This is not so easy, but together the two of them manage it. Once the pony is in the trailer, the ramp is folded up and the trailer is coupled to the car. Carefully the driver drives off, the pony should not be frightened. The playset contains a Car with Pony Trailer, two PLAYMOBIL figures, a pony and other extras. The roof of car and trailer can be removed.”
Look for both of these playmobil Country theme playsets (Pony Birthday Party $32.99 and Car With Pony Trailer $69.99) wherever playmobil products are sold (I find the best selection in store is at Mastermind Toys) or online at playmobil.ca!
