About Playmobil

Playmobil is one of the first toy companies to produce little people Playmobil toys with detachable arms, legs, heads, hats, and hair. These plastic figures came with all sorts of clothing and tools from armor in the medieval times to recognizable work attire such as firefighters, farmers, and policemen. Playmobil toys are designed for children of ages six to twelve. This age range is when children tend to pretend and invent scenarios and stories for playtime.

The creator of Playmobil was Hans Beck from Germany who was a cabinetmaker but put together model airplanes on the side. He approached the company, Geobra Brandstatter, to create model airplanes but instead was asked to create figures for children. Beck researched and developed a toy that would fit in a child's hand, look like a child's drawing and be able to move and come in parts.

Playmobil figures started to be sold worldwide in 1975 and has been successful for many years. The line consisted of different worlds or time periods as well as city life and common occupations. Currently there are many Playmobil themes, but some of them are: School, Vikings, Hospital, Egyptians, Pirates, Modern Living and Construction. There are many, many more themes both current and discontinued collector themes that children and adults can continue to play for years to come.
