What is it
This is the ultimate island getaway! Take a trip to the bar where refreshing drinks are being served whilst being overlooked by a Cockatiel or climb the stone steps to the top of the slide and whoosh down to the beach. On the other side of the island is a cave that hosts a sea turtle that floats: a great spot for surfing so grab the board and catch some waves.
Includes four Playmobil figures and lots of accessories.

What our experts think
A great set that definitely sparked our testers’ imagination. We observed lots of role play and it was great to see the children acting out what they had seen in real life: from ordering drinks at the bar, to sunbathing, building sandcastles and going for a swim! This kind of play is great because it helps children make sense of the world around them by allowing them to act out different scenarios, benefitting their personal, social and emotional development. Discussion of real world concepts alongside play also gives children the opportunity to develop their vocabulary. We loved listening to the children verbalise their play, building on their creativity and storytelling skills – there were some great voices!
The children really liked the range of accessories and the fact you could add real sand to the beach, as well as making the island float. With this in mind, this would be a great toy for taking out in the garden (it could float in the paddling pool). The set was built by the children with little adult assistance – the instructions were clear and easy to follow. A couple of the steps were a little challenging due to the small pieces, and needed adult help.
