The Playmobil Toy

- the German Toys' Success Story!

Did you know that a Playmobil toy is a German invention? In Germany, every child owns some pieces of the following famous toy collection.

Although the brand name sounds english - Playmobil is a German invention and I am happy to add the famous Playmobil figures, to my German gift collection.

Learn here everything you need to know about these fascinating gift items for children.

The perfect German gift for kids

Children and adults quickly recognize the play value of this collection and are excited over the product.

Playmobil has been inspiring children to let their imaginations run free while creating their own adventures for more than 25 years. The German company based in the bavarian Zirndorf (near Fürth) has earned numerous awards for this magnificent, one of a kind item with themes that stimulates both creativity and imagination.

What is the magic behind ?

Kids find it delightful. The two and three quarter inch figure is the cornerstone of Playmobil. It features bendable moving legs and arms with grasping hands. The Playmobil displays pleasant facial expressions that are ideal for any play situation, while being a perfect size for the small hands of a child. All figures feature the compatibility of joining all the Playmobil play worlds, their accessories and vehicles. Therefore, it is common to see a Policeman exploring the underwater world in a Submarine or perhaps a Knight doing Farm chores.

The magic of Playmobil toys is the inspiration of imaginative play produced by a devoted commitment of the company in developing one-of-a-kind themes. Award-winning Playmobil toys enrich the live of children by their imagination while they play.

Success story without precedent

The success story of Playmobil toys began in 1975 as an exclusive model of the German company Geobra. This is a unique success story in the industry of German toys. A few short years after the introduction of this product, the manufacturer became the most popular one with the highest yield. This position this company still holds today.


The company celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2004. Nearly 1.8 billion figures have been produced and delightfully inhabit the rooms of children the world over. In 2004, the Brandstätter Group maintained 2.492 employees while achieving a group turnover of 370 Mio. €. Its production sites also include the Czech Republic and the island of Malta, in Spain. The company has additional subsidiaries in ten other countries.
