The New Super 4 Series from PLAYMOBIL Arrives on Neflix -- This Animated Series Is Not to Be Missed!

Disclosure:  I was sent a screening party pack which included a 3-month subscription to Netflix in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

This past Friday instead of movie night at our house, we ended up hosting a fun screening party for a few of the girls friends' and their families.  What were we screening?  :-)  We ended up watching the new CGI-animated series from PLAYMOBIL called Super 4 on Netflix.  Here is a trailer that will give you an idea of what this fun new animated series is all about...



Super 4 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 fate of the planet is vested in the u-shaped, PLAYMOBIL style hands of some very intriguing, but very unlikely super heroes.  

Prior to our screening party, I made a point to share the above trailer with those who were attending, so that they knew what to expect.  Leading up the party, my girls and their friends kept talking Super 4 and thinking of fun plot lines that the series would include.  But, even their imaginations couldn't prepare them for the fun we had this past Friday.  :-)

Upon arriving at our house, we have pizza and snacks ready, as you can't watch television on an empty stomach. I had told everyone that the screening of Super 4 would begin at 7PM, giving people time to get home from work, unwind and then head over to our house.  For those who arrived early, I had a coloring station set up, as well as a fun dress up area, where the kids (and adults) could put on crowns, pirate's hats and wear armor, to get into character and pretend to be one of the four Super 4 main characters.

I also had stickers to give the kids that completed the different stations I had set up.



But, the real fun began when we all sat down to watch this new animated series.  

"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.

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. "

My girls and the kids in attendance all love PLAYMOBIL, so they were excited to see the figures come to life in this new CGI-animated series.  They loved seeing the four main characters embark on epic missions and save the day by defeating evil, all while learning importance lessons like teamwork, honesty, friendship, respect for others and perseverance and determination, and standing up for what is right. 



Everyone got into Super 4 right from the start, and if it wasn't for the kids breaking to want to dress up and pretend to be the four Super 4 characters and play, we could have watched a 4-5 more episodes, no problem.  Even the parents were getting the show and loving the adventures the four main characters took the audience on.  

I loved Neflix for their vast array of educational and family-friendly programming before, but now that they have this new animated series for kids, I am loving them even more. :-)  We will definitely be watching more Super 4 in the days ahead, and can't wait for more seasons to be added.

And, if this animated series exclusive to Netflix was not enough, fans of the show will want to keep an eye out this fall, when 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 play sets inspired by the series.  The toys will be available both in the U.S. and globally in territories where the show is currently airing.  My girls can't wait for these new toys, and I expect them to wind up on their Christmas wish lists, too!

I was so happy to have be chosen to host a fun PLAYMOBIL Super 4 screening party for my family and friends.  We had a blast and can't wait to get together again to watch more Super 4 episodes.  If you subscribe to Netflix, you'll want to check out this new animated series, which launched on April 10th, and watch the 26 episodes which make up season 1 with your family.  With each episode only being 11 minutes in length, they are perfect for even little ones who don't like to sit for long.  We ended up watching 6 episodes during our screening party before the kids started to get up and move around, wanting to act out scenes and story lines. :-)  

I can't wait to hear what you and your family think of the new Super 4 series on Netflix, so be sure to leave a comment below with your thoughts.
