Agree with duplo being best - we made the mistake of buying the playmobil train - it rarely gets played with as you can't add anything to it. With duplo you can, and can also combine with other "worlds" as Caro says. And playmobil is ridiculously expensive (and the playmobil zoo we got had missing items, so perhaps quality control is not so good).

I'd say from having 5 children that duplo wins hands down. The more you have the more "worlds" you can make, and all the animals will fit on the trains, in the houses, etc! Playmobil is fiddly and although good can be frustrating for many children. By the time their dexterity is good enough to cope with Playmobil, they can well be moving onto other toys. Just my opinion, but we never got bored of duplo! (and if smaller children are visiting you don't have to worry that they will eat the accessories!)

duplo is probably still best, playmobil is brilliant but expensive and tends to have a selection of small easily loose-able bits (I brought some of the pirate sets and their swords and hands were missing with in a day and now all the pirates hairs and hats are missing! a child that likes to take things apart!) Duplo's a bit big to loose as easily although we have the winnie the pooh sets but I couldnt tell you where the figures have gone lol

He has a fair bit of Duplo, and is just learning to put it together. Likes the farm animals. Or is the Playmobil better as they get a bit older?
