Playmobil is an immensely popular brand and most homes have several sets in regular use. The brand has been around since the 70’s and despite the proliferation of electronic gadgets, Playmobil sets remain as popular today as they were 45 years ago.
There is a huge range of Playmobil sets to choose. This creative toy crosses every cultural divide and every age is catered for – there are even sets for the under fours. Kids can start off with small sets and build up their savings until they can afford a full play set. The great thing about Playmobil is that there is something for everyone. Children can play with themed fire trucks or knights in castles; the range is vast and ever expanding.
Playmobil encourage children to use their imagination. Open up a set and kids can create a wonderful imaginary world of creative play. Each set encourages kids to develop empathy and hone their fine motor skills. The arms and legs move on each of the figures, so your children can devise all kinds of fun play adventures that reflect real life situations.
We love Playmobil sets and we think you will to, so here are some of the best to explore.

You don’t need to worry about the weather when you have a Playmobil Camping Trip playset. Every day is a sunny day and your child’s play figures will have hours of fun. They can sleep in the four-man tent, prepare meals on the hot plate, and sit down at the folding table and chairs. The set includes three figures, a cat, a foldable pop-up tent, and various camping accessories.
The Playmobil Tactical Unit car is great for kids who like to be a part of the action. They can use the Tactical Unit car to recreate their favorite action movies.

What better way to teach your kids the importance of green recycling than with a Playmobil Green recycling truck? Kids can collect recyclables in the container and empty its contents into the truck. Take the Green Recycling Truck out into the yard or collect recyclables indoors. The set includes two figures, a truck, and a whole host of other fun accessories.
Playmobil sets are solidly made and a great investment for kids of all ages, but remember that many of the sets contain small pieces and are therefore unsuitable for children aged 3 and under.
