Playmobil is a construction toy where children can have hours of fun making their favourite models and then have just as much fun playing with the finished pieces. Playmobil is an amazing toy for encouraging children to use their imagination, role play with friends or even by themselves and also learn about the many subjects that the Playmobil toys are created about.
Playmobil first appeared on the market in 1974, but its history goes back as far as 1876 when a German locksmith called Andreas Brandstatter began a lock and metal fitting company. His son, Georg, took over the company in 1908 and by the 1930s he had redefined the company and they were manufacturing telephones, cash registers and items for toy shops using sheet metal. It was in the 1950s that the new owner Horst Brandstatter started to use his favourite material, plastic, to first make hoola hoops. Then using the same manufacturing methods, they developed the idea of making small moveable figures with fitting accessories and a good price to value ratio, and these toys were called Playmobil.
Here in the Toy Shop at WWSM we stock a huge range of Playmobil toys. Playmobil tends to be made up of a lot of small pieces and as a result is aimed at children aged 4 and above but there is now a range called Playmobil 123 which was designed with toddlers from 18 months in mind. Lots of big, colourful pieces and fun designs can be found on the 123 shelf. If you are an animal lover there are so many Playmobil scenes with animals involved. You can have fun playing at the Zoo, on the Farm, or on the Pony Ranch or how about taking a trip to play with African Wild Life. And if your animals become sick you can go to the Animal Clinic.
If you are the more adventurous type you can have lots of fun with so many Playmobil sets. You could walk the plank with both the Pirates and Ghost Pirates, or cruise on the Royal Nile Ship with the Egyptians. Maybe you would prefer to protect your castle from Dragons and Knights. Or like us possibly you think Treasure Hunting and going on Dinosaur Adventures would be great fun! But really the best adventure would be to become a Top Agent, a member of the Spy Team in combat against the vicious Robo Gang – now that sounds like so much fun.
There are so many amazing Playmobil sets on the Fire & Hospital Rescue shelf. If you want to become a Police Officer, Fire Fighter or work in a hospital when you grow up then this is where you want to look. Or maybe you would like to work on a Construction site, drive a lorry, be a race car driver or a pilot; you will find what you want here. Little girls would possibly dream of playing with a big Dolls House or how about a Dream Wedding in a Magic Castle.
There is so much fun to be had with the world of Playmobil, even toys to represent everyday life. There is a happy family in their Suburban house, children going to School and everyone having a great time in the pool on their summer Holiday.
Playmobil release lots of specials every year and these can be found on the Specials shelf. They also make a very popular range of Advent Calendars and a Christmas range.
