My 4 year old is a PLAYMOBIL super fan. So you know that when he saw Netflix was releasing a PLAYMOBIL-inspired series, SUPER 4, he was counting down the days to see his favorite toys in action. As luck would have it, Netflix contacted us a few days before the release to see if we would be interested in hosting a SUPER 4 party with family and friends.
Well you know that answer. We decided to treat the boys on the last day of spring break to a family movie night. The boys changed in to jammies, dressed in their favorite PLAYMOBIL gear, and headed to the couch to munch on a late-night popcorn snack and watch a few episodes of this much anticipated show.
Super 4 follows Alex the Knight, Twinkle the Fairy, Ruby the Pirate, and Agent Gene as they band together to fight evil and save the world – all while traveling between the different communities we have come to know and love from PLAYMOBIL.
Little Guy loves the PLAYMOBIL dragons and covets the castle sets (which he does not own yet but ogles over in the PLAYMOBIL catalog). Thus, it was no surprise to me when he decided to equip himself with a shield and crown for the viewing party.
Buddy is a bit more devilish, so his choice of a pirate outfit was also expected. His 3 missing front teeth totally made the costume, though it sure made the popcorn a little difficult to eat!
So thinking of having your kids watch for themselves? Here’s what my kids had to say about their new favorite program:
6 yo: “This is what I like. It was two short [episodes] in one big [episode]. I like how their cars can do many cool things.” (The show features some sweet rides for kids into vehicles)
4 yo: “There was a machine that made bad guys. That was cool.”
Check out the preview and let us know whether you’ll be watching (or if you have watched already!).
