For millions of children, this may look like a place where their dreams come true. That’s right. We're talking about the headquarters of Playmobil, in southern Germany.
Playmobil is a line of toys produced by the German company Brandstatter Group. The company specializes in making a wide variety of small plastic figurines ranging from knights and pirates, to farmers, firefighters and police. The toys have long captured the hearts of European youngsters. The first Playmobil figures were developed by cabinetmaker Hans Beck, in the early 1970s. Since then it has made 2-point-6 billion figures. But for now, Playmobil is getting ready to celebrate it’s 40th anniversary next year with the launch of new lines at Toy Fair as well as special products throughout 2014.
