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

New Playmo ads, plus a little taste (pun intended) of French fast-food chain Quick’s Playmobil promotion

Quick Playmo protion 2014 01

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?

Trol catalogue & 2011 Brazil exhibition pass and flyer

This is a Playmobil catalogue that would have been included in some of the sets. Dated around 1978 – 1980 and produced by the Brazilian license holder TROL, the front and reverse of the catalogue show some of the sets available at the time.

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…

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 and the UK. Thanks for looking.
