The PLAYMOBIL figures produced of high quality plastic material are almost indestructible. Children are still playing with figures from the first generation and those who are too old to play with them have kept them or sold them. Most of the fans from the first PLAYMOBIL years have now become parents themselves and pass on their enthusiasm and PLAYMOBIL toys to their children. Others became passionate collectors and are proud owners of quite a collection. They try to complete their collection and spend lots of money on their hobby. Items made in the 70’s are traded for high sums of money.
The PLAYMOBIL developers make sure that new ideas and interesting themes are created. As shown in the current assortment, the cheerful figures are allrounders and also very successful in historical (e.g. Knights and Pirates) and current (e.g. Construction Workers and Sportsmen) themes. There is absolutely no place for aggressive and horror scenes and short-lived fashion trends.
