Netflix Debuts PLAYMOBIL'S Super 4 & it is wonderful! #SUPER4onNetflix #PLAYMOBILComesToLife @Netflix @PlaymobilUSA


One of the world’s most renown toy brands is about to take kids on an exciting journey beyond the playroom. PLAYMOBIL®-inspired CGI animated series, Super 4, will debut on Netflix in the U.S. April 1st. Mixing action-adventure and a little bit of comedy, the sensational series for kids ages 5 to 9 vests the fate of a planet in the u-shaped, PLAYMOBIL® style hands of four very unique characters. Super 4 was co-produced by morgen studios and Method Animation and the release on Netflix will mark its U.S. debut.

Super 4 is a CGI animated series that follows four main characters—Alex the Knight, Ruby the Pirate, Agent Gene, and Twinkle the Fairy─as they explore the distinct island communities of their planet, fight the bad guys, and have fun along the way. Inspired by one of the most beloved and renowned toy lines in the world, PLAYMOBIL®, Super 4 is a brand new CGI animated series that follows four main characters—Alex the Knight, Ruby the Pirate, Agent Gene, and Twinkle the Fairy—as they explore the distinct island communities of their planet, fight the bad guys, and have fun along the way. The series truly brings the PLAYMOBIL® playsets to life in the same style that kids play with them—by mixing and matching characters together in incredibly imaginative settings and scenarios.


So I grew up playing with PLAYMOBIL figurines, I  was a die hard fan.  My brother and I would spend hours playing and using our imagination.  So of course I had to introduce the kids to one of my favorite toys growing up!  These series introduces  us to Alex the Knight, Ruby the Pirate, Agent Gene, and Twinkle the Fairy.    Gene is the more reluctant and thinking through everything kind of guy, while Twinkle is a dun loving and giddy little fairy that just makes you smile!  In the above photo, Twinkle is trying to help save some friends who are stuck inside a tapestry!  Instead she and Gene get sucked into it and it turns into a video like game episode with Gene and Twinkly battling trolls, finding dragons and bouncing about.  My son loved this episode and it was great to see Gene having a blast and not being so serious!

Season one consists of  26 episodes, each containing two 11-minute segments. So when you think about it you are getting 52 episodes!  My son is totally in love with these series and we already watched 8 of the 11 minute segments.  I loved that with each episode, he learned a little something too!  Friendship is key in this series, just as is never leaving someone behind.  The series also focuses on teamwork, honesty, strength, respect and more.  Children with love the creativity  and the imaginative adventures.  They will feel like they are on these missions too!

The kids really enjoyed this series and I can imagine us zipping thru the rest of them in no time.  We like to make Friday nights our family movie night, but switched it up tonight.  I have a feeling the kids will be asking for more Super 4 nights here soon!  It also helped that we did an ice cream sundae bar too!

Favorite characters from the Super 4 series will also be jumping off the TV screen and onto the toy shelf in September when PLAYMOBIL debuts a variety of playsets inspired by the series. The toys will be available both in the U.S. and globally in territories where the show is currently airing.
