Hurry and board the ark with your animals, two by two. Clever ridges on the ramp allow the animals to step their way up to the deck and join their friends to look out over the rising water in this boat that floats. Pairs of lions, giraffes, zebras, elephants and birds as well as two adult figures occupy the boat. A sack of food and tray for drinking are for meals as the group sets off on their adventure. Playmobil’s larger, rounded figures are easy for toddlers to manipulate, especially the figures who move their heads and bend at the waist for sitting. When play is done, just load the figures and ramp into the hull of the boat and snap the deck back on. After all, isn’t Mom’s best friend a toy that cleans up after itself? Playmobil’s Take Along series do just that so your child can learn the rewards of play and cleanup and your toy can travel with you.
