4857 Summer House

4857 Summer House

Spring 2011 Toys
Ages: 4 - 10 yrs.
Manufacturer: Playmobil USA, Inc.
Price: $59.99

The Playmobil summer house is a well made plastic dollhouse. While it takes some time to built, it also is made to last through lots of playtime. The set includes everything your child needs to enjoy this product. One does not need to purchase additional accessories as they are all included. It comes with four dolls and more accessories than anyone could desire. Each accessory has an amazing level of detail. For example, in addition to the traditional accessories like beds, chairs and tables, it also comes with bikes, a grill, and all the food items you might want for the grill. This product fosters imaginary play and will easily keep a child entertained. My only wish is that it came with a storage component so that all the accessories don’t get lost. While it doesn’t rate high on originality, it is a wholesome product that kids will enjoy.
