Playmobil Squad Car With Lights And Sounds Review


Reviewed by DT (note – initials used for reasons of my childrens’ privacy)

I have been a fan of Playmobil for many years and so was over the moon to be given the opportunity of reviewing the Playmobil Squad Car (product no. 6920).   The set arrived quickly in perfect condition. 

The box contained the following: 1 x policeman, 1 x policewoman, 1 x police car, 1 x radio, 1 x megaphone, 2 pairs of handcuffs, 2 guns, 2 holsters, 1 x police stop sign, a box to put the accessories in and more.  

One of my twins loves anything related to transport.  He couldn’t wait to get started putting the squad car together.  I think that the quad car itself is the perfect size for my sons.  It didn’t take us long at all. I popped the tow bar, the 4 wheels and 2 wing mirrors in place on the vehicle.  The enclosed instructions made assembling the squad car easy.  It was great fun peeling off the various stickers and fixing them in place on the vehicle.  I particularly like the holographic style sticker that varies between showing the words STOP and POLICE.   Whilst the doors do not open for the driver and passengers, the boot does open and there is a section of the roof which lifts off making taking things in and out of the vehicle quick and easy.  This roof section contains the lights and sirens.  There are two different sirens which sound once a 1.5V battery (not included) is inserted in the battery compartment.  I did like the fact that batteries are inserted/removed by unscrewing the battery compartment.

The police characters are great.  They are flexible in the sense that they can both stand and sit.  I like the fact that the police hats can be easily removed and put back on.  Whilst just the policeman and policewoman come with the playset, there is space in the vehicle to put more characters, perhaps characters from other Playmobil sets. The boot has ample room to store the handy grey box full of accessories plus more besides. 

As an adult I found pressing the buttons for the lights and sirens so much fun and so did my J who, as I mentioned previously, is a fan of anything transport related.    This toy has been played with for hours and is still in excellent condition.  I do tend to find that Playmobil toys stand the test of time well.  I wouldn’t be surprised if this toy ends up being passed on for another child at some point in the future.

I would recommend both this Squad car and Playmobil on the whole to others.  I think that Playmobil make high quality, true to life, robust toys that generations of a family can enjoy.  This was a perfect birthday gift for my twin sons and I think that it would also make an excellent ‘Just because’ or Christmas gift.
