4225 Doctor and incubator
« on: April 07, 2007, 19:27:40 »
I was so pleased with the ambulance - review here:http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=1279.0 - and the new medical helicopter (review shortly) that I have also bought the doctor and incubator and the wheelchair and patient (review to follow).  So here's a review of the doctor and incubator.

The incubator has collapsible legs, an opening clear plastic top, a removable mattress and grips at each end for manoeuvring the unit.  Quite which is the correct way for the mattress to go in is open to question as the box shows it one way and the instructions the other.  I decided that the box seemed the correct way, with the baby's head towards the main monitoring panel.

The top lifts up for access, and there are also two holes for access in the side panel when the top is down.

At one end there is a monitor screen giving a read out of vital signs, and at the other two dials, one with a red danger area marked.

Two figures come with the unit - a baby and a doctor.  The doctor is equipped with a carry case with medical equipment in.

Here's the case.

The incubator can also be loaded in the new ambulance in place of the ambulance stretcher, and in the new helicopter.

Overall, a pleasing item in the new medical range.  The interchangeability between the stretchers in the ambulance and helicopter is a nice touch which adds to the photo-story value and play value of the item.

I was impressed by this set the first time I saw it, but even more so now you have shown it in detail.

Looks like a lot of thought has gone into the design, just as it does with most anything Playmobil produce. 8-)

Thanks for the review and pics, Gordon. :)

That's one of the things I love the most about Playmo, the way they make things in standard sizes so they can be combined. Thanks for the review Gordon.

As allways a very thorough and detailed review. I am very impressed with this little addition to the medical theme. Infact i have been planning a special project for some time now and i think this will come in very handy. Thank you very much for taking the time to put this review together for us Gordon  :wave:

Kindest Regards  Tim
