- Where to buy: Online at PLAYMOBIL and ToysRUs also has a great selection
PLAYMOBIL is a wonderful way to give toys that inspire imagination and creativity. I am amazed with their huge selection of options when it comes to fantasy play. Pretty much any dream situation has a playset to match. While I'm drawn toward the Circus sets and the Fairy World, my boys like the adventure sets. The Nautical Expedition line was right up their alley. We got the chance to review the Deep Sea Diving Bell and my son (age 4) was captivated. It can actually be submerged in water and the cabin will stay waterproof. The diving vessel has cool features like a retractor arm, turning fans, lights and air tanks. You even get to lower the vessel with a crank rope (totally my son's favorite feature)! The set also comes with a headgeared decked out ocean diver, ocean foliage, and a golden idol. We fill the sink with water and just let him enjoy. It also makes a fabulous bathtime toy and I have a feeling it will be a big hit at the pool this summer! I love to watch the creative things he says and does as his imagination takes over during play. He is really into spies so the deep sea mission is usually something to do with a four year old's perception of spy duties. Any set from PLAYMOBIL would be a hit with the child on your shopping list. Their catalog is impressive!
