Two contestants who submit names that really “rock” will be chosen to receive a $500 shopping spree on www.playmobil.us.
My take: Here is a picture of everything right out of the box:
The instructions were incredibly easy to follow and in very little time the stage was set up. A few notes to consider while assembling this product….make sure the big drum head is attached to the stand before placing the sticker since the drum set attaches only one way and you don’t want your sticker upside down and same goes with the speakers- make sure they are the correct orientation before applying the stickers. Here are some picutres of the completed assembly:
This year I am appreciative of little details. I really liked how the drum set was firmly assembled so it does not easily fall apart. Here is a picture of me holding it upside down:
Each of the guitars have a holding strap so they can easily be placed on one of the figures:
The guitars also have their own holding stand:
The drummer has a seat to perch on:
Overall I am quite impressed with this product. Assembly was not difficult and there are several great details: the real stage lights have two modes, the “pretend stage lights” are easy to rotate and move, there is 2 levels of volume for the music as well as 2 prerecorded songs. You can also easily plug in your MP3 player and have your own music:
I think the price range is fantastic and also love how the figures can move their heads, arms and bend at the waist. My only 2 negatives: the microphones were extremely hard to place on their stands and I wish that the speakers had a way to lock onto each other once stacked.
