5125 - Farm Dogs

Continuing on with my farm reviews here is the dog set.
It has the basics with a dog house, leash, bone, dish as accessories

Here is the dog compared with two other similar styles. It is much bigger than many in the past have been. I think this looks forward to the breeds sets that will be coming out this next year.

Here are the puppies. Also new molds these are a little more curvy than the last ones as you see here.

Here is the dog house, it's a very different style from the previous ones



Here it's compared with previous dog houses



You can see it's much larger

The reason is obvious when you put the dog in them





I don't know what the great dane is going to do for a house, maybe he will just use the people one :)

Overall I like this set pretty well. The new dog is a good one I think. The puppies are ok but not any great improvement over the previous ones.

They sure look good, but I am not sure about the eyes... I preferd the dots in them, like the puppy you are showing in the comparison pic, Tim.

Thanks for the pics!

Am I the only one who finds it silly that the adult dog has a leash and the puppies don't? If they're old enough to be about, most puppies need a leash A LOT MORE than a (well behaved) adult dog....  (yes, I'm crazy, this ocurred to me on the bus on the way...)

The dotted eyes make these dogs/puppies look far more realistic and sweet. The bigger dog with the different colour in the eyes and nose , look like a ghost  more scary than a sweet puppy should be , something the dotted eyes ensure i think. playmobil gets it so wrong with eyes in animals all the time !!!!! Most animals look so fake etc !!!!

I really like the new puppies, I think they are greatly improved over the old ones! And love the new dog, too. Thanks for the great review, Tim.

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.
