Have you heard of Playmobil? They are another amazing company from Germany; being a German mom I love to show my kids what I played with when I grew up and not only can I share memories with my children, I can also introduce all my readers to wonderful companies and products that I’m certain your little ones would love and enjoy just as much as I have when I was little.
Playmobil is yet another wonderful company and a household name for high quality products. On our recent trip to Germany I rediscovered Playmobil, being in the US for so long and very little advertisement about Playmobil, I kind of had forgotten about how cool the little play figures and houses where. But on our trip we wend down memory lane and in almost every German household with little ones under the age of 15 there where boxes full of Playmobil; both my boys and my princess started to get excited about those little play figures and the story they could create with them. It wasn’t long before my kids begged me to buy some Playmobil of their own. So, we did.. and in our carry on back to the US we had 4 bags full of Playmobil; NUTS… I know, but the kids loved it and I enjoyed seeing them spend time together, playing and building and just having a good o’l time.
Playmobil has a HUGE selection in the US, mainly on their website or through Toys’R’Us (in store or online). We are still dreaming and my kids are making LOOOOONG Christmas wish lists of all the Playmobil products they need to have in order to get even more imaginative play going…lol….
We discovered through our online search on Playmobil.com that they just introduced a new Playmobil line called E-Rangers/ Future Planet. The best part, it’s for ages 7 and up. I just love that Playmobil isn’t just for the under 5 crowed anymore; now even the older kids can stay away from the PC or video games for a few hours and get creative and spark their imagination with the cool new Future Planet. We had to check it out for you guys.
This super cool E-Rangers Headquarter set takes your kids on a planetary adventure with the Future Planet range. The year is 2113: The E-Rangers discover an unknown planet. In order to be able to live there, they produce their own oxygen with plants. This base is ultra modern and environmentally friendly because its fan is powered by a real solar panel. It is also equipped with a light beam gun, five characters (including a robot), a convertible Racer that changes into a propeller or a jet-car racer and multiple accessories. But the calm of this planet is misleading, because the E-Rangers are not all alone; Of course there are “Gangsters” in this series as well, so if your little one wants a little battle with Good and Bad, they can dream that up and create their very own story.
My Teen and the Princess must have spend hours exploring the sounds and lights of the E-Ranger Headquarter Station; it was super cool. Check out the video below that will give you a detailed look of the Ranger Station and some of the accessories that are sold separate.

This E-Ranger Headquarter set includes 181 parts; which includes 4 figures, computer panels and lots of cool accessories to get your creative play going and spark your imagination. My teen kept saying “This is so cool, check this out Mom… you create light (does need batteries/not included) and the Solar Panel is really turning the fan on (really works.. super cool – the Teen tested it!!)”. The Command Center has a changeable transparencies and the balance Racer can be turned into a propeller or a jet-car racer.
This set will keep your little ones (or older kids) entertained for hours and if they do get bored, there are lots of super cool accessories that will keep them going like the E-Rangers Turbojet with Launch Pad or the E-Rangers Collectobot and many more.
The only issue I saw, the kids needed some help putting the station together, but once the E-Ranger Headquarter was put together it was very sturdy and held up well to our 4 year old and 13 year olds play style. Now my kids will be exploring the new planet for hours and I don’t have to worry about them spending too much time in front of the TV; I can hardly get them to come and eat dinner. That’s how excited they are about any of their Playmobil toys!
