The accessories of Playmobil figures are sometimes for other toys - for example, this Princess includes a key for her not-included captor and a variety of handcuffs with a chain around her neck. I assume this is because she got caught by an ogre, but it's also possible that she has some really fun hobbies.
As with other blind-bagged figures, assembly is required and it's simple. You know the drill.
The figure assembles, same as always, and is a pretty good fairy tale princess. She has a lot of painted gold trim and a black belt with tassles, poofy purple shoulders, and a really big hat. It's huge - and it has that thing hanging from the back that I don't know what it is. The figure parts are things you've largely seen before, but not in this combination, or in these colors.
If I had more castles, this would be perfect. There have been some really top-notch fortresses and castles over the years, but they're mostly populated by dudes - nary a queen nor a princess in the bunch, let alone a peasant or a traveling saleslady or some sort of magic warrior person. To fill out the population, you need figures like this - and who doesn't like a big hat? The keys to unlock her from whatever captivity she's in to (we don't judge) are a nice bonus, with cuffs that snap on easily. Well, mostly easily. You might need a steady hand to get them around her wrists, as they're more encompassing than the usual shirt cuffs you'd get with a pirate.
This is a charming figure - blonde hair in a bun keeps the hat in place, and everything else just clips to her person. The accessories are a departure from this kind of figure, although it's probably not great to have a girl line with "captive princess" in 2017, but she's joined by some sports figures, action heroes, and adventurers - so it's a good batch. I'd say it's worth snagging if you've got kids into these kinds of things. Or if Shrek Playmobil is ever a thing.
