The Playmobil Suite at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel; celebrating 40 years of Playmobil

I’m really proud that I’m one of the Playmobil Playologists. Playmobil is only a year older than me and celebrates its 40th birthday this year and its one of the toys which I have spent most of my life lusting after. Playmobil is quite simply the best small world toy you can get your kids. It’s a modern classic and I’d personally consider each set an investment as unless you choose to sell it on, your grandchildren will be playing with the sets you buy today.

As part of the celebrations Playmobil and the Waldorf Hilton have created an amazing Playmobil Suite. Situated right in the heart of Covent Garden and close to loads of the big musical theatre shows it is a brilliant place to stay and we were treated to our very own private viewing. This was accompanied with the chance to play with the best of the current Playmobil range what an amazing treat!
With three children it is really hard to spend any time alone with just one of them so for this trip I took along my eldest who is seven. He loves music, Lego, Playmobil and Iron Man so this was really the perfect trip for him. I was thrilled to be able to spend a bit of time with him, life is so busy and even finding time to chat to each of them individually can be a challenge.

At the Waldorf Hilton we found an amazing assortment of toys to play with. Everything from Dinosaur Playmobil, table football which the boy loved and a remote control crane. However, without a shadow of a doubt the thing which the boy enjoyed the most was the remote control car, complete with an onboard camera which you could view via the controller. I know you want this, we want this. You can buy it here, don’t blame me for leading you astray…

Although we had loads of fun playing with all the amazing toys it was lovely to see the special Playmobil suite. As a Londoner I’ve always wondered what some of these hotels are like inside and although i’ve been fortunate enough to attend a few functions at various hotels I’ve not actually seen what the rooms and suites are like. It was really interesting to see what the room was like and I must admit there was really something special about being able to look out of the window at the iconic view below.
The room itself is plushly appointed as you would image for a room at a luxury hotel. There was a Playmobil themed bedside lamp which I’d LOVE. The children’s part of the room was decked out with a brilliant Playmobil Duvet, some of the life sized figures and some more amazing toys. It would be any child’s dream to stay somewhere like this (and many adults- i’d certainly like the chance!). It’s only available for 40 days and 40 nights so grab the chance whilst you can! If you’d like to stay in the Playmobil Suite, you’ll find all the information here.
