Easter is fast approaching and several years of experience have taught me that we will get quite enough chocolate. This year I’m on the look out for alternative Easter Eggs; some non chocolate Easter gifts for my kids. 

The Playmobil Eggs are a lovely Easter alternative to chocolate.

We were sent the new Playmobil Eggs for 2019 (a set of four) to review.

The egg are about 5 inches/12cm tall and can stand up on its base. They are made of plastic and come apart easily. They are designed to be put back together and reused and even come with a coin slot (in the base) so that the egg can be used as a money box.

Alternatively you could keep them and refill them each Easter with chocolates or other non chocolate Easter gifts ready for an Easter egg hunt!

The Playmobil Eggs for 2019 come in four colours and each contains a different Playmobil character and accessories.Playmobil Eggs review - Alternative to chocolate Easter eggs - Non chocolate Easter gifts (64)

They aren’t surprise eggs, as you know which character you’ll get from the box outside and the colour of the egg, but you can of course remove the packaging before giving to your child if they do love a surprise.

What’s inside the Playmobil Eggs?

The yellow egg features a pirate with cannon, cutlass, and treasure chest with gold coins and gems.

This egg comes with lots of little pieces; the gold coins, gems, hat and cuffs plus the cannon, torch and cutlass give little fingers a little challenge to put together and once you’ve assembled it, you can fire the cannon by pressing in the bottom. 

If your children already have one of the Playmobil Pirate Ships then this pirate will be a lovely gift to complement the set. 

Inside the green Easter egg, the zookeeper with two cute little seal pups can be found.

She comes with two cute seal pups, a bottle of milk and fish to feed to the baby seal pups, and a mop and bucket to clean up after them! There are fewer pieces to put together in this egg, however she’ll be the perfect addition to the Playmobil Aquarium that my oldest got for her birthday.

The blue egg contains a space agent and a robot, complete with little sucker feet which will stick to a flat surface.

There are quite a few pieces to put together to make the robot, and the space man comes with a little headpiece, gloves and a scanner.

Lastly there is the pink egg, which has the fortune teller inside.

This one is my favourite as it comes with so many pieces to put together; the table and crystal ball, her hairpiece and cloak, the cards and of course her black cat!

What did we think?

Even with just four different eggs and characters available, there is a great range with an egg to appeal to every child no matter which sets of Playmobil they have and want to expand. I just know that my son will love the space agent and my daughter will want the the fortune teller!

Most children go crazy for surprise eggs and this is a nice additional element. If you are looking for some non chocolate Easter gifts, because your child can’t eat chocolate or you just get way too much, these are likely to hit the mark. I think they make a great alternative to chocolate Easter eggs for friends, nieces and nephews, which parents will approve of and can use again in future years!

How much and where to buy Playmobil Eggs

The Playmobil Eggs cost £4.99 so won’t break the bank. They can be bought from nationwide Playmobil retailers and online via Amazon.
