I got Scoobied + 3 new Brazilian Playmobil ads

A little Christmas pressie for me… but Ruhuh… I didn’t get the Mystery Machine (not yet anyway 😉) However I did get the Playmobil Scooby-Doo set 70207 featuring Scooby, Shaggy, Ghost and accessories.

Cool 😎

Now for some cool Playmobil adverts from Brazil. The following three ads are reproduced here courtesy of longtime TVTA contributor and friend Zerocal and feature mid-90s Playmo figures from the manufacturer Estrela.

The ads are printed on mini comic books (in Brazil, called “Revista em Quadrinhos” or simply “Gibi”).

Circus Revista. Monica N°95. 1994. Brazil.

Ambulance Revista. Monica N°94. 1994. Brazil.

Castel Revista. Cebolinha N°96. 1994. Brazil.

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
