Take Along Hospital Playset

by Playmobil
current stage2016-06-22

Thoughtful details and plentiful accessories are what give Playmobil sets their charm. Filled with furniture, medical supplies, machines, and other tiny accessories, the four people included with this set will have plenty to interact with. Of course, other toys can get in on the treatment, too.

With very positive feedback, this set sparks imaginative play. Users report children playing with this set at least once a week, and it is often chosen as one of the sets taken when traveling due in part to its locking mechanism which keeps everything nicely tucked away inside.

Detailed Review

Toy Description

The playset closes up and locks with two little swinging levers on the back. A handle makes the whole set easy to transport. All the included pieces easily fit inside the case.

Set includes four people figures and a large number of accessories:

  • Four figures: A nurse, a doctor, an adult woman, and a child.
  • Casts for the foot, hand, and bandage wrap for the head. All pieces fit the child, not the adults.
  • A wheelchair, which also fits the child, not the adults.
  • A bed split into an upper and lower section. Each section can be raised and lowered. A flexible lamp attaches to the bed.
  • An ultrasound machine with surgical tools and tubes of gel.
  • Desk with moveable drawers, computer, file folders, and a book.
  • A machine with moveable shelves, a set of books, and tubing.
  • Two chairs, and a potted plant for the waiting area.

Play

Pretend to treat injuries, either on the included figures or other toys.

Observations

Known for their attention to detail, this Playmobil Hospital does not disappoint. Everything from moving desk drawers to medical tools and supplies to a potted plant, a great deal of effort has been put into making this set a high-quality prop for a child’s creative narrative. There’s even the name of a real company etched across the bottom of the potted plant.

Everything packs up into the playset for easy storage. The locks on the back are secure but also smooth and easy for even toddlers to manipulate. A little carrying case folds down when not in use, so as not to ruin the look of the building’s roof. This is very important, as we have been informed by some very knowledgeable children.

Folding up and down at both head and foot, the medical bed is concaved so the Playmobil figures will sit in it quite comfortably. We didn’t have too much trouble with them sliding off, even when the bed was propped up as high as it can go.

For whatever reason, only the child can fit into the wheelchair or the casts and bandages. The child seems to be smiling an awful lot for someone who needs that much patching up, but hey, maybe it was all worth the story that he’ll later tell his friends.

Many users have reported this being a set that gets played with very frequently, but not just with the included figures. Action figures, ponies, and the occasional bath toy may find themselves in need of medical treatment after doing something that was probably really cool.

Toys that encourage children to play pretend offer opportunities for them to explore scenarios they might not normally have the chance to do in real life. This means they could work through multiple ways of overcoming obstacles, or try and understand what it may be like to be someone else. Engaging children’s natural curiosity about the world around them, toys that drive the imagination can help them use storytelling and narrative play as a way to explore that world. Stories that focus on taking care of the injured and sick may help children develop empathy and compassion.

Care

  • Wipe down with a damp cloth
  • Wash off with warm, soapy water
