Playmobil — The Multi-generational Toy
What is Playmobil?
Do you know about Playmobil? I am always amazed at the number of parents and grandparents that don’t!
Since 1974, PLAYMOBIL® toys, created by Hans Beck, have become a classic throughout children’s playrooms, with play themes ranging from a knight’s castle to a sunny vacation hotel. My daughter had the big victorian dollhouse (now called the Grand Mansion) and my son had the Knight’s castle (his was quite similar to the current version.
Approximately 2.7 billion of the beloved play figures with the iconic smile have been produced, sparking imaginative play for children all over the world. Around 30 different play themes are distributed in more than 100 countries worldwide. Both parents and educators recognize PLAYMOBIL®’s award-winning toys as a benchmark for high-value, quality play products.
We still have a massive box of Playmobil because I want to keep it for my grandkids AND because more than any other toy, my kids loved and identified with Playmobil! I consider Playmobil as heirloom toys.
Adults love Playmobil too!
PLAYMOBIL’s School Bus $39.99 and Take Along School House $39.99 help kids make the transition to school day fun! Yet, Playmobil for Adults can’t be denied. My kids came over when the Playmobil toys arrived, and immediately dived in and starting putting the whole schema together and playing. Now mind you, they are 23 and 25! I couldn’t help joining in the fray either! Why is Playmobil so much fun? Well, take these two toys, for example:
- The iconic PLAYMOBIL School Bus features flashing lights and a moveable stop sign; figures can get a ride to and from school with all their friends!
- The new PLAYMOBIL Take Along School House is a convenient take along case, perfect for on-the-go fun! Once class is through, simply fold back up the case and bring it to the next location.
Playmobil — Multi-generational Toys
My kids have the fondest memories of playing with Playmobil and if I pull out the Playmobil toys today, they will still get down on the floor and play with their cousins. Playmobil is just so realistic and high quality. As a adult, you can really appreciate the level of play acting that can be attained from these fascinating toys. As well, Playmobil has so many different fun sets that play well together.
