5935 Horse and Pony
« on: March 06, 2011, 00:23:15 »
This is a short review of this new blister pack. It is available at Toys R Us and Playmobil.com for $6.99
I really like these mid-size blister packs. They have just enough items to make a nice small scene and have great play potential. I think Playmobil is on the right track with these, keeping the set interesting with a lower price point.



This set has a horse, rider, fence, little boy, and a foal/colt/pony.
Most of the set is the same as 4191 Equestrienne. The only thing missing is the 2 white sock pieces for the horse. That set is $8.99 so for $2 less you are getting almost the exact same set plus a fence, the little boy, and a colt. A great deal.



The colt is light grey. I had wondered about that in seeing the photos online, and it turns out to be true. This is a new color variation not available before.



In conclusion it's a great value and plenty of play potential, just what Playmobil should be doing to take part in the US market.

These mid size blisters are great. I bought this one and two others yesterday at TRU, and I have them lined up right here next to me. I was wondering if the gray colt was new because I didn't remember seeing it before, and I hadn't gotten around to checking animobil yet, so thanks for the info straight from "the source!"  :lol: Another great review!  :)9

Thank you for an neat and concise review, Tim. I think in your analysis of this type of set you've hit the nail on the head, Tim- they're the route Playmobil should be taking more often as they are not only good, reasonably priced introductions to Playmobil but also additions for existing buyers.
