Pirate Adventure Island Review (Playmobil)

What It Is

The Pirate Adventure Island is a big and beautiful pirate playset that will allow kids to engage in all kinds of open-ended play with a popular pirate theme. There are lots of details that will fire up kids' imaginations. Beyond that it's also an engaging memory game.

To play the game, turn on the unit, and the treasure door will open up. Put in the treasure, then select the level of difficulty, 1–5. Close up the door and press the start button to see a sequence of lights in the pretend flames in the upper cave. Your job is to find the coins that match the symbols in the cave, and place them in the mystical dial in the same order that the lights light up. But watch out. There are dangers lurking on the island for adventurers who make mistakes.

The island playset also has hidden stairs and falling rocks. It comes with three figures, a rowboat, a working cannon, and other accessories.

Is It Fun?

The memory game is terrific and engaging for younger kids. It complements the exceptional play activities built into this dramatic Playmobil set.
