Playmobil Cowboys Western Sets - Yee haw!

Updated on December 12, 2013

Western Range new for 2012

There's a new Playmobil Western range with Cowboys and Native Americans for 2012. Here's an overview of the range and where you can buy it.

There's much excitement in our house over the new Playmobil Cowboy range. My older son is currently seriously into cowboys. He's been asking lots of questions and is now familiar will all the cowboy themes like the Gold Mine, Sheriffs, Native Americans and their Wigwams and covered wagons. And here they all are in Playmobil form.

We have loads of Playmobil, the kids have lots of fun with it. It's great quality and lasts well and comes in ranges that really capture my boys' attention.

Let's take a look at the new Western range (out May 2012.)

Playmobil Western Limited Edition Set #4398 My Take Along Western City

@ Amazon

BUY NOW

The Playmobil My Take Along Western City is a Playmobil has a Sheriff's Office and Bank that fold away for storage - there's a handle on top for easily moving the set. I do like sets that pack away neatly like this.

You get two cowboys with their horses (the Sheriff is purchased separately though.) You also get a traditionally dressed bank teller. And of course there are lots of accessories including a bank safe and money, and rocking chair. There's a removable panel in the side of the Sheriff's office to escape through.

We have this set and it's packed with loads of great stuff. The only downside is that some of the pieces fall off the main unit a bit too easily so we're always having to pop them back on.

The roof of the Stagecoach comes off so kids can play inside more easily.

Cowboy Figure Sets

Part of the fun of Playmobil is swapping the hats and accessories around between the figures and setting up large scenes. You can get a pack of three cowboys and a Sheriff set to add to your collection of Western figures.

As usual Playmobil have made a brilliant video to go with the range. There's trouble out West! English subtitles.

Children's Books about Cowboys

Playmobil is a great educational prop for learning about the world. Why not choose a children's book about the history of the Wild West to go along with a Playmobil cowboy toy and your child can learn about cowboy history as they play.

      Thanks guardianstar, I'm a bit obsessed with teaching history to my kids. My history education was very patchy and I've had to fill it in as an adult. I love going into detail on a subject like the Wild West with my kids.

      Nicely done. I like the way you offset the "commercialism" with some good humor and good descriptions of the various sets. The Playmobil cowboy sets seems like a good investment if parents will take the time to introduce our country's history to the children as they play. Again, nicely done.
