To be honest, I had not heard of the EverDreamerz series prior to this. We had always stuck with the standard City, Pirates or other random series. When first seeing the packaging, it’s nice and colourful. If you’re familiar with the LOL toy collection, the unboxing is quite similar, except the Playmobil version is better. A couple of reasons why; 1. they’re neatly tucked into certain areas of the box, 2. they’re easy to peel and open and 3. there’s less plastic involved.
There are five main characters, Edwina, Rosalee, Viona, Starleen and Clare. Each figure has its own unique accessories, however they are interchangeable and you can add the special charms to make a bracelet. A water pen is included in each box to allow the kids to colour in the stickers. So far, Cara’s favourite is Viona because of her panda. However, I’m sure she’ll have a new ‘favourite’ next week. PS: My favourite is Rosalee as she has pink hair, like her Mum! There are also side-story characters, including some ‘baddies’ and my favourite, Mrs Pencil.
Although they have their own Comic World, Cara’s enjoyed mixing them in with the other characters. They’ve merged worlds with the firefighter, doctor and the naughty pirates. It’s great to see her imaginative play as each one has a different role in her story. It’s amazing the ideas that kids come up with when playing. I’m sure we’ll be packing these in the bag the next time we head out for dinner as it’ll keep her occupied whilst waiting for the food!
If you’re looking for some new toys for your child to play with, or perhaps a birthday gift for one of their friends, then the neat little box and packaging will definitely stand out.
Cost: From £14.99 each, available online via the Playmobil store.
Burn Time: 5 out of 5 – Cara can spend majority of the day playing with Playmobil. The new series will fit in with any existing scenarios or playsets your kids may already own.
Value: 3 out of 5 – Not the cheapest in the Playmobil line up, but it’s similar to the LOL collection where they unbox the surprises. Convert that to cost per time spent playing, it is fairly reasonable.
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 – Cara gave it the thumbs up, and as shown in the photo above, was so happy to play with them that she didn’t even bother getting down from the kitchen table to do so.
