Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match {Review & Giveaway}

Playmobil logo
While my girls typically have varying interests, one thing that they can both agree on is soccer. They each have participated in indoor as well as outdoor classes and, while neither of them has shown a great deal of drive or determination in the sport to make me think it will be a part of their future endeavors, at least they both had fun.

Which is why I knew that taking the world of soccer and putting it into a miniature, durable, portable package would be something that they would enjoy. Add in the ability to improve hand-eye coordination, develop spatial relation skills, make it all a form of entertainment... and it all comes together thanks to Playmobil and their Take Along Soccer Match.

Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match

Dribbling across the field and scoring a goal has never been easier thanks to the Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match. By allowing your kids to challenge one another to a soccer game no matter where you are, this set comes fully equipped with everything needed pass, shoot and score your way to a complete soccer game experience.

While I wasn't sure if my girls possessed quite enough dexterity and hand-eye coordination to control the miniature athletes in this game (it is designed for ages 5-10), I knew that they would still love playing with their realistic teammates and attempting to kick the ball.

Sure enough, when this game arrived, they were full of curious questions and eager anticipation to start playing.

Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match review

Inside the box, we found a portable, travel-ready 22" x 33" field, two small soccer balls, six soccer players, and various accessories.

It didn't take long before we had the entire Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match constructed and the 3-on-3 teams ready for action.

Right away the kids and I marveled at the way that players are able to control one of the figures' legs with a small lever on the back. Just by giving it a tap, that leg kicks up to propel the ball forward, which helped make playtime more realistic... not to mention bringing a smile to my girls' faces every time.

Combine that with the goalies that were connected to joysticks (thus allowing players to control the movements from behind the goal net), the ability of the figures' arms, legs, necks and more to move or rotate, and the unique way that you can customize small details in the game (e.g. changing the hair from one figure to another and selecting the numbers for each miniature jersey), and it was no wonder that it added up to a hit overall.

Playmobil soccer review

While this game hasn't been used extremely competitively around our house, it has provided hours of fun and entertainment for all of us. The girls enjoy reaching for their favorite little soccer player to practice kicking the ball around the field and can often be found playing by themselves or together and giggling as calls of Pass it me! and I'm open! Kick it here! and I got it! fill the air.

This game has proven to be a big enough draw that the girls sometimes head over to play with it for a few minutes even before they've had breakfast. Who says that pajamas aren't an appropriate soccer uniform?

All in all, Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match has been a fun and unique addition to our game collection that I'm happy to have around. Not only does it keep my kids entertained, but it helps them practice motor skills, socialization, and learn basic science concepts at the same time.

As a major bonus, when you're done playing, simply fold the entire game back up on itself to form a briefcase-type package that is not only portable and stores in tight spaces, but all of the small pieces stay inside for less chance of getting lost.

Playmobil portable soccer

With so many electronic games and toys out there, it can often feel as though kids only play with things that include lights and sounds (and require batteries). Instead, Playmobil offers a wide selection of modern-yet-classic games such as the Take Along Soccer Match that can combine fun, activity and imagination all in one.

Retailing for $59.99, this innovative game can be purchased directly from the Playmobil USA website, on Amazon.com or at specialty stores near you. But, wait! Head over right now to PlaymobilUSA.com and redeem the coupon code US72A12C to receive 20% off of all Playmobil Take Along items!

Thanks to the generosity of Playmobil, one person will soon be ready for some kicking on a very small scale, because...

One lucky person will win a Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match!
