The Secret of Pirate Island

Pin It I was recently sent a copy of Playmobil: The Secret of Pirate Island to review with my kids. We love it!

Synopsis

Ahoy, matey! Your favorite Playmobil toys have come to life for the very first time, in an all-new swashbuckling adventure and you’re invited to join them! You’ll have a treasure chest full of fun with seven-year-old Jack and his big sister Amelia as they stow away on a pirate ship headed for the mysterious Pirate Island — a place filled with treasure and curious creatures. Can Jack and Amelia stay one step ahead of a bunch of wacky skeletons and get to the treasure before the pirates do?
In my personal opinion this is a brilliant DVD. It was easy enough to use that my boys (ages 6 and 7) had no problems. They were able to follow the directions with no adult intervention at all.
The animation is bright and colourful and even held my 2 year old daughter's attention. The DVD is very family friendly and I didn't find any objectionable material.
I LOVE the interactive style of this DVD. The boys loved being able to choose their own adventure and have watched the DVD at least a dozen times since it arrived. I also appreciated Captain Gruff's favourite movie ( the non-interactive movie ) that my daughter could watch on her own. The Pirate sing-a-long was another fun feature that we all enjoyed.
I took this picture of my son Aiden while he was playing the Secret of Pirate Island DVD. I think his expression says it all :)
I would definitely recommend this DVD- it would make a perfect Christmas gift for the little adventurer in your life!
