Rock Out with PLAYMOBIL PopStars & Your Fave Tunes!

Big thanks to PLAYMOBIL for sharing product & information with me, so that I could try it out and show you guys how this cool PopStars set works – and for providing an additional PLAYMOBIL PopStars set for a winner too…

There are a lot of cool things about being a mom. One of those things is introducing your kiddos to things that you loved as a kid – whether it’s a favorite cartoon, a candy you couldn’t get enough of, or an awesome toy that brought your imagination to life. I kind of love that Abby ended up coming into my world a little later in life, when so many of my fave toys from childhood are cool again. Things like Cabbage Patch dolls, Care Bears, and My Little Pony. But there are also some toys that just kind of always stayed cool – things like Lego, Mario Brother games, and one of my favorites – PLAYMOBIL. I spent many, many, many hours as a little girl playing with my PLAYMOBIL sets. And I love them just as much now…

PLAYMOBIL PopStars Playset Review

One thing I love is that the PLAYMOBIL figures are easy enough for Abby – who’s 3 – to play with, but not so “little kid-y” that my older nephews – 6 and 10 – won’t play with them. They’re sturdy enough to hold up to the wildness of a toddler’s playtime, but feature such cool designs and accessories that big kids love ‘em too. Like our newest addition – this PLAYMOBIL Pop Stars Stage set – it is seriously soooo cool. A few super awesome features:

  • You can connect your MP3 player to the stage, and play your own favorite tunes. This is the kid’s very favorite part, since they can play our rock star scenarios to songs they love. {And, my brother was in a band for years, and we have some of his music on our MP3 player too – so my nephews can pretend the guitar player in the set is their dad. Love it.}
  • With or without the MP3 player hooked up, the stage still has buttons that will play music from the built-in speakers, flash lights to the music, and more. Very cool.
  • The whole set is really easy to put together… The main part just has a couple of pieces that snap together quickly, and you add batteries of course, so there’s juice for all of that lit-up musical rock star action. Then the smaller instruments and accessories all go together really easily too. This is a major selling point to me when buying toys.

It just rocks. Literally.

The set comes with everything you need to put on your own rockin’ play day filled with lights and action. Some of the little pieces might be a little bit too small for a toddler – the suggested ages are 4-10 – but even Abby at three seems fine with it. I just take away the tiny microphones so she doesn’t try to eat them. Because she’s three. And that’s what 3 year-olds do…To see what all is included, check out the list of all of the cool goodies you get:

  • The whole live-action stage with working lights and speakers.
  • A cord to connect your MP3 player to the stage {but it also comes with 2 pre-loaded tunes too.}
  • Four rockin’ PLAYMOBIL figures that can hold the mics, guitars, and other accessories.
  • A drum set with matching symbols and drum sticks.
  • 2 guitars with straps to attach them to the figures, and 2 guitar stands.
  • Microphones, play speakers for the stage, and moveable play lights that attach around the stage.

You can see it in action in the video above – it’s got a few different settings you can rock out too: You can do lights only, pre-loaded music only, your own music, or both lights and music, and you can even adjust the volume settings. It’s so popular in my house, it’s led to some seriously sold-out shows. Check it out…

Abby loves to set this up in the toy room, and invite all of her “friends” to come to the show. We turn the lights in the room off, and dance to the lights from the PopStars set. Good times :) But – that does lead me to my only complaint about this toy; I wish it included a girl or two in the set of PLAYMOBIL figures. You can purchase additional sets too – like the Pop Stars Tour Bus, a Keyboarder, or an extra Pop Stars Band set that does include a girl, but I’d love to see one included in the main set.

So – I shared that opinion by entering their contest – From now through November 15th, PLAYMOBIL is launching an epic “Battle of the Bands” contest where fans like us can vote for our favorite PLAYMOBIL PopStars! group. {I voted for the group with a girl lead singer :)}.  After voting, you can also submit an applause-worthy name for the band you voted for. Two contestants who submit names that really “rock” will be chosen to receive a $500 shopping spree onwww.playmobil.us. How cool is that, right?
