5225 Grooming Station
« on: August 09, 2012, 03:03:58 »
I don't think this set has been reviewed yet, sorry if I missed it. This series has come available early at Toys R Us, and it has some nice features, so I thought I would share a few pictures.


Here is the structure itself. It has, of course, a working water hose that runs on a pump.

The not-so-pretty back of the structure


I think this clydesdale is absolutely magnificent. :love:


He comes with a very pretty blanket, and a brown bridle and reins.


Interestingly, he also comes with a green bridle and matching string...


which very cleverly attaches to the ring on the wall. I thought having two different bridles was a nice extra touch.


Absolutely love this klicky! I like his rolled-up sleeves, which though they aren't new, I think they look really good with this outfit.


And here he is with his apron


grooming tools and products, plus a nice big bucket I don't recall seeing before.


I also don't think I've ever seen this orange container, which perfectly fits all of the grooming tools.


And the best thing of all... blacksmithing tools!!! That's the main reason I bought this set, truthfully.

 
And here is an overview shot of the whole set. I think it's just lovely! :love:

Gotta pick this one up for those blacksmith tools.  The horse and klicky do look pretty good as well.  Thanks for the review.

Nice set. You're right about the horse, he's a beauty!

I'll have to control myself. I've never been interested in the equestrian themes, but the newest (5221) stables are gorgeous. The whole theme looks great. I definitely want the pony wagon #5228.

Afraid I didn't buy those, so I can't do a proper review. They aren't my theme and I've got a very limited budget these days. I did post pics, however: http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=11511.msg214714#msg214714

Bonnie this is a wonderful set.  I think the Clydesdale is wonderful.  :yup:  Is he the same as the Shire horse in set 5108?  Thanks so much for the pictures, it is a great review!

Thanks for the review.

On Playmobil.de in the description for this set they call the horse a Noriker
Clydesdales usually have a white nose stripe. I'm not a horse expert though, and as far as I am concerned it can be any breed you want. I did call it a Noriker on Animobil though
