Sentosa introduce a new term into our vocabulary
Sentosa playcation was launched on 24th November.We were invited to the opening day to partake in the event. Hearing that Playmobil was the featured icon of Sentosa playcation, Daddy readily agreed to this invite as he wanted to
Playmobil was Daddy's main choice of toys in the 70s ( yeah, Daddy is ancient). Playmobil was founded in 1974, the same year when our Daddy was created. Back then before the era of iPads, playmobil was the toy of choice for stay home kids.

However since the turn of the century, other toys and gadgets had since replace its roles in little boys heart. We were not formally exposed to playmobil and this would be a great introduction to the 70s for us.
So without further ado, the Wacky Duo landed in Sentosa!
|Wanted in Sentosa!|
We headed straight to Palawan beach where most of the Playcation action takes place. We were in awed by the giant Playmobils that line up the open space at the ship hull next to POLW ( it's near the location of the Beach car park). Daddy did not tell us his toys were this big when he was small. We wondered how he could play with these large size Playmobils during his time.
|Palawan Beach near POLW|
There was a castle build at the ship base where Captain Palawan and the pirate do battle. It feels like a scene right out of Pirates of the Carribean. One of our favorite pirate shows.
|Castle in POLW|
We wasted no time gaining entry to the castle. Our intention is to defend in the castle against intruders at all cost!
To be honest we are actually more interested in the mini playground behind the facade of the castle. This is a mini size climbing play area that should appeal to kids 2 to 6.

Amazing there is even a slide at the side. We were pleasantly surprise at how such a small space can be maximize for fun. The play area should hold about 8 kids comfortably at any one time.
Further into the Playmobil exhibits, we stumbled upon the Playpit. We discovered that Playmobil comes in play size models as well!
We loved the idea of the Playpit. It allows us to get up close and personal with Playmobils. We were attracted to the knights and castle and spend some time playing with them. Although Playmobil is new to us, we warm up to them relatively fast and wasted no time in role playing with them.
Daddy I think we found our Christmas presents...
|I want to play too!|
|Playmobil invaded Sentosa|
We stayed in the area for about 1 and a half hour including time spend for the activities. The good news is that most of these activities are free!
This is a great experience for Playmobil fans and kids who would like to be introduced to them.
