Playmobil Makes Bustin Feel Good!

Playmobil Makes Bustin Feel Good!

The three-inch figures of Playmobil decide to bust some heads — In a spiritual sense, of course!

As a child, I was more into LEGO and Star Wars primarily. The Playmobil toys kind of passed me by. I had a least one figure and maybe a vehicle but I never really got into them. That may soon change.

Playmobile originated from Germany in 1974. The figures were designed to fit in a child’s hand, be flexible enough to not limit their imagination but not so rigid to cause frustration. Inspired by a child’s drawing of a person, they have larger heads, a big smile and no nose.

The toys generally are generically themed with the first ever sets based upon Native Americans, construction workers and knights.

Last year Playmobil announced that for the first time ever in their company’s history, a range of figures and sets were to be released based on a licensed property. That property was Ghostbusters!

Here’s an animated trailer showcasing how Playmobil have applied the Ghostbusters license to their unique looking figures.
