You get quite a lot here for a compact set. In the box you get the base as pictured which is, by my measurements, about 21 cm by 16cm. There's a minimal amount of assembly; you have to fit together the little sail boat, add the drawbridge which separates the two sand coloured areas and assemble the parasol. There are three stickers to be added to the sun tent which has to be slotted into place, and the grip has to be installed to the surfboard and you are good to play with the two figures, a mother and child, who come assembled and bare footed ready for beach fun. There are plenty of accessories, a bucket and spade, two mini palm trees and teeny toys (an elephant and dinosaur randomly) as well as a sun cream tube and three sandcastles which can be "built" by putting them in their base time and time again. This does make for lots of quite small bits that wouldn't be suitable for a child prone to putting things in their mouth and with which a bit of care has to be taken as some of the pieces are millimetres big.

This set works well as a stand alone item as well as going well with other sets. Everything is very sturdy and in well made plastic. I find that my daughter loves to sit various people under the tent and make them play in the sea or with the castles. This set is popular as a destination for the occupants of her playmobil camping car and also as an add on to her playmobil park (did I mention we have a LOT of playmobil?), and also balances nicely on the side of the bath for playmobil people stopping off from a tour in their self propelled boat. Both the people fit on the surfboard firmly due to a clever swivel system on the board - though they don't particularly float very well and are best surfing in an imagined rather than real manner

The set really seems to encourage my child's imagination and she has literally played with it for hours on end - who doesn't like a trip to the seaside?! Despite lots of play I can't really find much to fault with the design or durability of the set, other than the fact that some pieces are tiny. It packs down compactly but has a lot of different elements to it for a small item in my opinion.

This really is a five star item in both my and my daughter's eyes and would be a great starter set or addition to a collection. There are other sets in the series should you wish to add on a sunlounger or holiday maker or even a beach buggy. Highly recommended - for the price it really is a good little toy and we love it!

Children of my children now adore playmobil just as they did before them. Far and away the best fantasy small world play with robust, non-stereoptyped themes, images and characters. Bravo and long may it last

I bought this to take on holiday for my 4year old to keep her entertained back in the villa in the mornings etc before heading out to the beach and she loved it, lots of imaginary play recreating her day...

I got this for my son along with the family van, boat and trailer and I purchased a single figure (tourist). We have had hours of fun with this set, building sandcastles on the beach, wading in the sea and putting suncream' on all the figures! Really good price too!

We got this to accompany another larger playmobil set and it didn't disappoint. The detail, as with all playmobil, is exceptional and this set brings a bit of family holiday nostalgia to my living room each time it's played with.

Both my son and daughter love this, it's a great set at a reasonable price.
Great to play with as it is, or to add to other playmobil sets!
Go on, buy it, you won't be disappointed!

Happy 5 year old - that's important ! All the usual playmobil detail. Shame they can't do a manual the kids can understand so that they put it back altogether, in one place !

playmobil might be considered expensive by some but considering i still have the ones i was brought 30 years ago which im now adding to for my kids i would say it is more than worth the initial outlay.this set is gorgeous and fits in well with other sets like the camper vans and caravan sets. its high quality as normal and i would highly recommend it to all

The recipient of this present has had many happy hours playing with it. Fortunately some of the pieces are bit enough for adult fingers to get involved as well.

A great addition to the Playmobil sets we already have. It has been used a lot already as the Playmobil family go off to the beach, in this lovely weather.
