Explorers Hidden Temple
New from Playmobil comes the Explorers line! Journey to the Hidden Temple, and join the explorers as they navigate the temple ruins, and use it as a research lab before exploring the rest of the island.

There are glow-in-the-dark features (the ruin’s eyes, the test tube and the jungle plants all glow when using the included UV flashlight), the treasure map reveals hidden secrets when rubbed, the freight pulley is pivotable and much more.
