So far my least favourite Playmobil toy
on 1 January 2012
I bought the Fire Chief's car for my three year old son. It is a sturdy toy and comes with a few accessories. Its hard to pinpoint exactly why this is my least favourite Playmobil toy so far. Maybe it's because the car failed to capture my son's imagination like other Playmobil toys (e.g., the Fire engine with ladder, crane or recycling truck). My son doesnt even use the Fire chief's car to tow his fireboat, he prefers to use his fire engine. Maybe it's because I don't like the design of the removable roof and windscreen. Someone else mentioned in their review about the windscreen breaking. I can see how this would easily happen - with a child leaning on the toy when pushing it along. I have avoided this happening by removing the roof & windscreen (because I have a baby who would no doubt lean on it).
I don't want to sound too critical because it is still a good toy, but for my son it did not spark the same level of excitement and storytelling as other Playmobil toys.
