PLAYMOBIL… staying traditional since 1974

Playmobil is produced by the German manufacturer Brandstätter Group and has been sold worldwide since its launch in 1974. Playmobil is known for its durable figures and play-sets based on historical and modern subjects.

The brand has so far managed to resist the lure of the big licences (Star Wars/Harry Potter/Marvel etc) and have stuck with their ‘traditional’ themes that continue to remain popular around the world. (2017 edit: this year Playmo have announced they are releasing Ghostbusters sets based on the original 80s films. Could this be the beginning of a Playmo adventure into 80s pop culture franchise land?)

TVTA is pleased to present a number of international Playmobil adverts from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Our featured adverts come from Germany (the home of Playmo), France, Denmark, Italy, Brazil, the Netherlands, the US, Malta, and the UK. Thanks for looking.
