Review:

The Playmobil Furnished Hotel, is beautifully detailed and allows for tons of imaginative play. That incredible detail means that this kit comes with 785 pieces. Yes it can be problem to keep track of and put together so many itsy bitsy pieces, however that is a large part of the value of Playmobil's toys. Just be prepared to help your children assemble the set once you have opened it.

Playmobil's hotel had an instant appeal, and it continued to engage children for months. It soon became apparent that our 8-year-old tester was not able to put it together and that it required Mom or Dad, or a grandparent, to help. As their parents slowly constructed the hotel over the course of six hours, children happily played with accessories from the kit. The completed hotel is a beautiful toy that our evaluators kept out in their family room.

The quality and range of accessories is truly fantastic, and they bring the Playmobil hotel to life. The lobby features a check-in counter, safe, room keys, computer, telephone, magazine rack, check in book, and more. There is also Include a working elevator and key card to your room. The Hotel Café can be furnished with a table, chairs, a highchair, dishes, cutlery, cups, and a drinks dispenser. There is also a game room complete with little surprises like a miniature Noah's ark and a set of surf and skate boards. The hotel also comes with eight figures, their luggage, gear, and a large variety of additional accessories such as a baby car seat, a bottle, a teddy, and a potty seat.
