We started buying playmobile when we had our children when station in Germany and have been buying and passing it down the gernerations for over 40 years as birthday or Christmas presents. Now it's our two grandaughters turn and this latest purchase has added to what is an extensive collection. It is the level of detail in the product that captures a childs imagination. If you have a large collection try and keep them in the orginal format when put away, farm items together, pirate ship together, castles together and so on. They then can be brought out as a new toy to play with rather than one big jumble, plastic storage boxes are ideal for this method. The larger purchases often could be added to such as extra knights to go with castles etc.

We bought this for our son's 4th birthday, and he has enjoyed playing with it so far. As usual for Playmobil it's very detailed and very high quality, and putting it together is a minor project -- it took me a couple of hours the previous night. One word of warning: the grain silo comes with a bag of "grain" which is made of little plastic flakes somewhat resembling red lentils, although smaller. It's really good fun filling the silo and pouring the grain out through the spout, but before you open this bag and let your child play with the grain, think hard about how much time you want to spend cleaning these things off floors all over your house!

A great buy! Bought for my sons 4th birthday and he plays with it constantly, although he's a bit disappointed there weren't any sheep with it. Loved all the little details on it such as a birds nest, milk churns, hoist and particularly liked the working silo (parents less so as it makes a huge mess!)
He also had other bits bought to go with it like the tractor, horses and dogs. Overall a great product from playmobil.
