The PLAYMOBIL web store is a delight for kids and adults alike. I know that the internet and mobile apps have cornered the market lately but there’s no substitute for traditional play and the imagination that it can inspire amongst children of all ages. The range of PLAYMOBIL toy systems is about as good as it gets and has been evolving into what it is today since 1974.
The site layout is easy on the eye and colourful with the various themes available to choose from the homepage product carousel. The themes include pirates, history, wildlife and princess which really narrow it down to a child’s interest. There are links to some of the featured toys from the images when scrolling down the homepage. Clicking on a product takes you directly to a detailed description, delivery information, spare parts and even assembly instructions which is great if you’ve mislaid your own and you need to download them again.
I like the instant cart preview when the product is added, it beats searching around for the link. There’s a link to the main cart page within the preview. On the main cart page there’s a place to validate a voucher code or gift certificate, just enter the discount code in the box and click on apply. There are other options at the checkout including a free catalogue, free bonus DVD and bonus product which in this case was a free Pirate, Romans or Princess DVD, a nice touch. Payment options include Paypal, credit and debit card or gift certificate.
