Everyone's favourite blue characters are embarking on a whole new adventure this year in Smurfs: The Lost Village. Schleich's cute collectable range is the perfect way to recreate the blockbuster movie!
The Playset needs putting together upon opening the box. Aimed at 3-8 year olds, this does need doing by an adult. There are instructions in the box but I was able to fathom out how to put the set together without them. It was all pretty straightforward.
Each 'section' is bagged up and inside the mushroom roof of the house and the main body of it. Once 'constructed' it looks just like it does on the box.
The pieces are plyable and largley slotted easily into place. The windows open and close and have shutters on. The roof lifts off. The shutters open and close too as does the front door! That also has a key in it which does 'lock' the door.
The quality of the playset is very robust with great attention to detail. Each of the three charachters that come in the set are realistic. There's Papa Smurf, Gargamel and Azrael. Little monkey has been able to use his imagination to play with the characters and the house. He is 6. There are no lights or sounds, so therefore no batteries required, this playset is all about making your own fun with the characters and house. How cool does Papa Smurf look!
The playset is £29.99, which, considering the detail and quality of the toy, I believe is reasonable. Children can play with this set on it's own or add the other Schleich Smurf toys to recreate scenes from the film!
It's a quirky toy with it's signature red mushroom roof, Papa Smurf, Gargamel and his cat Azrael. Personally I wasn't sure at first but I like it! Little monkey seems to too.
I think it will last a good while and be played with over and over. I'm hoping my niece will love it when she gets older too. You can see more Smurf toys available from Schleich by clicking the link above.
We were sent this set for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
