Playmobil Hospital is a toy that gets children to spend hours having fun and learning. Well made and durable, as all Playmobil toy sets are, you get a cross section of a hospital building with access to multiple floors, operating table, and hospital equipment. Given the subject matter, this toy is more appropriate for older kids. Yet, the play value is still very high.
The toy hospital has an operating table that is adjustable, and operating light that can tilt. The working elevator has enough space for a patient’s bed. There is plenty to do, and plenty to learn about hospitals, doctors, nurses and patients. As usual, the Playmobil Hospital is complete all by itself – you get the building and the figures. But like all Playmobil sets, you can also get additional fun figures and stuff – like a doctor and an incubator. A Playmobil Ambulance is an often purchased accessory.Playmobil prides itself on making toys that spur creativity. The Hospital is no exception. Admitting patients, operating, doing blood transfusions, talking to patients – all these activities take children out of the everyday environment, and put them in the realm of the unknown. Their imagination can roam freely. They can make up their own rules, they develop compassion for the patients, they can transport their favorite toys into the Hospital. Playmobil figures from other sets will work just fine in the hospital.
Parents’ help will be needed when assembling the Playmobil Hospital. Yet, there is no reason to end there. Playing with parents and grandparents is very important to young and even older children. It not only strengthens the family, but also gives kids the opportunity to see the lighter side of their parents. And parents, when playing with toy doctors and toy operating tables can let go of daily worries and have just as much fun as the kids. Children benefit from parent’s experience and wisdom when solving problems posed by hospital complexity – in order to operate on a patient, he has to be brought up on the elevator, medical team assembled – these are not easy concepts for a child. But children will naturally learn from grownup experience and wisdom, if only it is offered. But the most important aspect of playing with grownups is n is simply the physical and emotional closeness with parents. Children never get enough of it, and neither do parents. When you buy a Playmobil Hospital for your child, you are really getting it for the entire family.
