It’s pretty easy to tell if a toy is going to be a hit around here in the first couple minutes we open the box. I had my doubts about Pop On Pals by Spin Master and wasn’t really sure it would garner the attention of either kid – but both were immediately into the Amusement Park Playset and have continued to play with it frequently ever since we got it.

Pop On Pals Amusement Park Playset
Pop On Pals are round, pudgy little figures that are the perfect size for little toddler hands. The pals come with interchangeable rings that act as simple costumes to change the personality of the little pal. The Amusement Park is a colorful and active playground for your kids to explore through the Pals. The Amusement Park Playset comes with one Pal, three theme rings and the Park itself.
As I mentioned, both of my kids really took to the Pop On Pals right away. They literally fought over the Playset. Mostly because this set only comes with ONE figure. There are nine spots for the figures to explore including a strong man striker, milk toss game, dragon swing, Ferris wheel, and roller coaster. It’s a lot to do, with only one figure. I really think the Set would make more sense if it came with two Pals. (You can buy them separately – and I will probably add to our Set.)
To Buy or Not to Buy
To Buy… Both my 3.5 year old and 20 month old really enjoy this toy. My son likes to make the Ferris wheel spin and switch the Pop-on rings and act out different scenes. My daughter likes to put the little Pals in a spot and take it out and put it in a different spot (over and over). If their experience, I think Pop On Pals will be a big hit with toddlers and young preschoolers.
Or Not to Buy… The Amusement Park Playset really should come with more than one Pal.
Shop! The Amusement Park Playset is $34.99. It and other Pop On Pals, including Airplane and School Bus Vehicles and Mix & Match Pal Sets, can be purchased at stores nationwide like Toys R Us, Target and online at Amazon.
