Approximately 2.6 billion of the beloved play figures with the iconic smile have been produced. They spark imaginative play for children. Both parents and educators recognize PLAYMOBIL®’s toys as a benchmark for high-value, quality play products.Good Housekeeping, Parenting Magazine and Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, among others have recognized and awarded this line of toys.

There is such an amazingly wide variety of PLAYMOBIL® products. I have listed a few of my favorites that I just find so adorable and fascinating. It may be a little funny and sad that I am 22 years old and still amused by tiny toys but I believe we are all kids at heart!
