Checklist For Playmobil Train Sets

Checklist For Playmobil Train Sets

Age And Suitability
  • Pay attention to the age recommendation for the Playmobil train set. This is usually written on the front of the packaging, for example”4-10″. This means that the train set is recommended for children between the ages of four and ten.
  • There are Playmobil trains that are suitable for toddlers as young as 1.5 years old (models from the “1-2-3” series). These typically feature larger individual parts that children can’t easily put in their mouths.
  • For the more detailed trains, Playmobil says toddlers should be at least 4 years young.
Size And Mobility
  • If the Playmobil train set is to be used not only at home but also on the road, a smaller model that is easy to transport is preferable.
  • At home, it can also be a very large train set, as long as there is enough space in your child’s room.
With Or Without Technology
  • The trains from the Playmobil 1-2-3 series do not have any technical gadgets.
  • Larger Playmobil trains run motorized. Here, the power is supplied either by rechargeable batteries or disposable batteries. This distinguishes Playmobil trains from LEGO trains. In the latter, the locomotives draw power from the tracks, which in turn are connected to the power grid by cable.
  • Some Playmobil trains have extensive technical features, such as spectacular light and sound effects, which make playing even more realistic and exciting.
Models And Accessories
  • There are many different Playmobil trains.
  • Basically, you have the choice between passenger and freight trains.
  • In some cases, you can also find special versions, such as nostalgia or Christmas trains, which are sometimes based on real railroads.
  • To expand the Playmobil railroad set even further, you can choose from various accessories, such as an additional passenger car or a railroad crossing with barriers.
  • The large Playmobil trains do not fit on the tracks of the simpler trains from the 1-2-3 series – the same applies vice versa.
  • In several parent forums you can read that you can run Playmobil trains on LEGO duplo tracks – and vice versa.
