Traveling with children can sometimes be a hassle.  How many times have you been asked, “Are we there yet?”

While somme of you still havve a few weeks to travel and soak up Summer, the rest of us are already involved inn back to school and extra-curriculars, SIGH.

So we both need a way to keep kids occupied while in the car!

 PLAYMOBIL's fun Carry Cases are here to save the day!

 These themed, take-along cases have everything a kid needs for tons of imaginative play on the go!
When kids are done playing, all the pieces from the play set can simply be placed in to the Carry Case, snapped close and brought to another destination with ease, or kept in the car for more fun!

We were sent the 4 packs shown above to check out. Miss Grace was more than happy to check them out and give me an honest review!


Police Carry Case 

Embark on rescue missions wherever you go with the Police Carry Case. This easy, take-along case allows kids to help out the police as they race to the rescue. Just jump on the police motorcycle to race downtown to the scene. Set includes one police figure, motorcycle, helmet, police sign, flashlight, and additional accessories.

Miss Grace had to open this set first, of course!She loved the set, but was disappointed that the motorcycle trunks didn't open to store the accessories! But he soon fled the carry case, as she had to add him to her Police City!


Fashion Boutique Carry Case

Create a chic outfit with the Fashion Boutique Carry Case. Enclosed in an easy, take-along case, this boutique has trendy clothing that can be used to dress up the skilled fashion designer. Set includes one adult figure, clothing mannequins, interchangeable dresses, purse, design and sewing tools, and other accessories.

Miss Grace thought this was a fun set, and quickly saw where the table could double as a surf board for her designer girl ("she does more things than fashion, you know"). It has a LOT of small parts though, so you might want to add a small bag or container to hold the small pieces. It was also the only set that had a missing piece, but it didn't make any difference in play.


Vet Visit Carry Case

Care for all the animals with the Vet Visit Carry Case. This easy, take-along case has everything kids need to tend to sick pets and help them heal. Set includes one figure, two dogs, one cat, exam table with lamp, stethoscope, medical tools, feeding bottles, medicine, bandages, and tons of other accessories.

Miss Grace adored this set! She wants to be a vet, so no surprise there! This one also has lots of small pieces- can you believe the detail on the scissors? And she loved how a 'cone of shame' (all parents will know that one) included for the dogs. The cat's booboo never appeared for her, but it's possible she rubbed it too much, LOL. 

Soccer Shootout Carry Case

Score the winning goal with the Soccer Shootout Carry Case. Enclosed in an easy, take-along case, this set is ready for action thanks to the player’s realistic kicking function that allows kids to really play the game. Set includes one soccer figure with kickable leg, goal with practice goalie cutout, soccer ball, and cones.

Miss Grace wanted to share this one with a friend, so we didn't open it, but it has the smallest amount of pieces, at 6. So it would be better for younger kids. 



The things that as a parent I liked about these sets:
1. Easy opening- even little hands can easily open the latch, to open the case by themselves
2. The instructions are in color and show all the pieces well, so kids can ut items together by themselves
3.  All the included pieces are shown on the outside of the box in picture form, so you KNOW what you should have in each kit. No guessing as to what the 16 pieces, for example, are supposed to be.
4. If you have multiple cases, as we do now, you can combine your sets, and then use the leftover case for more sets, or additional items like a small pad of paper and crayons, for kids to draw background scenes, accessories, etc for their play in the car

Overall these are fun and easy to use sets, that kids will adore! there are 10 different set to choose from, and there are at least 3 your kids will each want!

So if you want something that urges creative play to abate boredom, pick up a couple of these sets for when you hear "I'm bored' or "Are we there yet?"
