Playmobil sent me their latest retro toy, the Magnum, p.i. Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole playset to review. Playmobil has been doing a great job making different sets for many of the classic shows that I’ve enjoyed in my childhood. Most of the shows have iconic vehicles in them like K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider and the A-Team van. Magnum, p.i.’s Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole is also quite iconic. Who from my generation can still see that car cruising around Hawaii as Magnum got up to his antics. This show ran from 1980 to 1988 and I was 6 when the show debuted. That is probably why I never got into watching it. I probably would have enjoyed it because I liked so many other shows of that genre at that time.

Despite not watching the show I do know much about it and was excited that Playmobil made this playset. The iconic Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole from the classic 80s TV crime series Magnum, p.i. Set also includes the main characters from the series: Thomas Magnum, T.C., Rick and Higgins. Magnum has his signature Dodgers baseball cap, Higgins has a Playmobil parrot. Each character can also use the Playmobil walkie talkie, binoculars and camera. there is even a coconut tree to complete the island feel.

the set is retailing at $79.99 and a must have for collectors who are fans of the 1980s and specifically Magnum, p.i..

The folks at Playmobil set me some Naruto figures to unbox and review. Opinions are my own.

I have never watched an episode of the Japanese Anime show, Naruto Shippuden. However, this past year Fortnite did a crossover with the series and it was fun. I learned more about the character and the show and so when Playmobil asked if I’d like an influencer package for the toys I said yes. Here is the video I made of the figures.
