About the Toys
Santa loves snow; he’s surrounded by it every week of the year! So imagine his enchantment with the new Pinypon Snow Ski Lodge playset ($39.99) and the accompanying Pinypon Snow Adventure Car & Tow ($12.99). Pinypon was introduced to the U.S. market in 2012 and little girls everywhere are smitten with the pint-size doll line, outfits and accessories.
Established in 1957 by a group of artisan doll makers, Famosa has become a leading European toy company and doll manufacturer based in Spain. The company has a stellar reputation as a developer of innovative, safe and high quality products that foster all around development for young children. Families who grew up in Spain or Mexico likely have fond and warm memories of playing with their Famosa toys. Famosa currently operates in over 95 countries, reaching a wide range of consumers. In 2010, Famosa was acquired by Sun Capital Partners and its U.S. operations were established in October 2011, based in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. The company markets brands including Pinypon, Nenuco, Nancy and Feber.
My Take on the Toys
I have to start by saying that I am always looking for new playsets that will engage my youngest daughters’ curiosity as well as help spark imaginative play for her and her friends. I can be honest in saying that I had never heard of this company before trying this out, most likely because of it being a European company and only finding the company at our local Toys ‘R Us.
One of the things that really stands out with these sets are the little extras that they provide. One of the things that stood out most was the ice rink that was a part of the Ski Lodge Playset. The ice rink can be filled and then placed in the freezer to freeze and voila, you have an ice rink that the characters can play on. My daughter will play on this rink until it melts and then ask me to do it again!
The characters in this are fun and both of the playsets are well made and I can tell that they will outlast some of the other sets we have had in our home in the past.
The company also has put a lot of additional details into not only the characters but the playsets themselves, and these additional add-ons were very nice to find and my daughter loved them. For example the lodge has little things like logs for the fireplace, beds, tables sunglasses on the characters and so much more.
I highly recommend Pinypon to all and hope to find some great new sets to follow these!
