Going Big with Wiltopia – Animal Care Station

We have had the pleasure to look at a number of Playmobil sets over the past two years, but none have come close to the magnitude of the Wiltopia Animal Care Station. With over 350 pieces, getting this set together took a lot of time - in fact, Playmobil even warns parents that assembling the set could take up to 90 minutes! But is all the effort worth it? Is there enough to do in the Animal Care Station to warrant the high price and long build time? Let's take a look!

Dino Rise – Pteradon Drone Strike Playmobil Review

Not every Playmobil set we review is huge, and not every Playmobil set we review is great for multiple kids at once. I do enjoy that Playmobil has these smaller sets, because not only are they a good price, but they are a good value as well. We've looked at a lot of Dino Rise sets in the past, so why not look at another. Here is my deep dive on Dino Rise - Pteradon Attack!

Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest Review

When I had heard that Stonemaier games had the publishing right to Libertalia, and that they were going to release a brand new verison of the game, I was really excited. I had actually played the original Libertalia, and it looked as if Stonemaier was going to improve upon the original? How does it all shake down? Is it worth double dipping, or picking up for the first time? Let's take a look!

Dino Rise Saichania: Invasion of The Robot Playmobil Review

More Playmobil, more great fun! This time my kids and I stepped outside the world of reality - from looking at the Fire Rescue ship and Mini Cooper - and entered the world of dinosaurs! We've looked at Dino Rise in the past, but not on this scale. The Saichania: Invasion of the Robot set is pretty big, and includes all you need for at least two people to play for hours. Let's take a look!

LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Peach Starter Set

It's been well over a year since LEGO Super Mario first launched, and again, I must admit my error when I said the franchise would be a total flop based on the chunky characters you play with. LEGO Super Mario has been a massive hit, and the third playable character has finally launched, Princess Peach. While the Adventures with Peach Starter Course is similar to that of Mario and Luigi, I do think it's the best of the bunch if you are just getting started. Let's look at why

Brio World Bringing New Trains this Holiday Season

If there is one thing we enjoy at the Roffel house it's the Christmas season. Friends and family visiting, stockings, and of course, the tree. We always put up two trees each year - one 'adult' tree with beautiful ornaments and an obvious theme, and one 'kids' tree, which is just a mishmash of gifted ornaments and other cool little trinkets. We've always wanted to get a Christmas train to run around the base of the kids tree, but the plastic ones you find at the story were always to cheaply made and would break easily. Then we saw the winter train from Brio, ...
