The Italian job… cool Playmobil ads from Italy!

Here are some more cool Playmobil adverts from Italy. As with my previous Italian Playmo post, these ads appeared in numerous comics and magazines during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Big thanks again to TVTA’s good mate Zerocal for sending these scans. Please visit his excellent Playmobil site over at: Playvender.blogspot.com

Playmobil adverts from Italy

Time for some cool Playmo adverts from Italy. These adverts would have appeared in numerous comics and magazines during the late 1970s and early 1980s. It’s good to see some of the aviation line of toys as well as some great sets from Playmo’s extensive Wild West series. What I really like about some of these ads is the depiction of the packaging alongside the toys. Seeing those blue boxes brings back fond memories. I also like the impressive dioramas and photography, which for me is typical of Playmobil and their attention to detail when it came to advertising their products.

Big thanks to TVTA’s good friend Zerocal for sending me these scans. Please visit his excellent Playmobil site over at: Playvender.blogspot.com

Playmo galore!

TVTA’s good friend Zerocal at playvendor kindly sent me scans of some great Playmo ads from Brazil and Italy, along with an insert catalogue by Brazilian license TROL, plus other goodies.

I’ve also included in this post a Danish ad from my own collection that has somehow eluded the jaws of my scanner for a few months now. Also featured today are some figures and promotional material from fast-food chain Quick. Enjoy 🙂

Don’t forget, this year is the 40th birthday of Playmobil. How are you celebrating?

Quick Playmobil promotion, 2014, France

Here in France, fast-food chain Quick is running a Playmobil promotion offering ten collectable figures along with prize-winning opportunities to grab two play-sets from each store. The figures are based on the theme of princesses and pirates, and they come free with a purchase of Quick’s Magic Box meal.

I don’t normally collect fast-food promotional toys, but this Playmo promo is really good. Sadly, the fish dippers I’m eating to get the toys are just as addictive as the toys. Better add some extra Ks onto my cycling route these next couple of weeks…
