Buildings especially come with detailed instructions for putting them together. Playmobil building parts were originally designed to fit together using a system of tabs and slots known as "Steck-System". In recent years a new construction system has been introduced that dispenses with the tabs and instead uses small connector pieces and a special tool. This is known as "System-X" and is now the standard Playmobil construction system, Steck-System having been retired except for special reissues.
A number of different companies were licensed throughout Europe and Latin America to produce and distribute Playmobil figures:. In Spain, figures were produced by the leading dollmaker Famosa , and marketed as "los clicks de Famobil". Spanish packages listed the quantity of male dolls clicks and females clacks.
Females were distinguished by hairstyle, a wider chestpiece suggesting a skirt, and some had arms that look bent but are not. Greek figures were produced during the s by a company called Lyra. Playmobil was introduced to the United States by Mattel and Schaper. Approximately 10 million of the Sheriff and Indian Playmobil toys were distributed from October 22 through November 1, Before the other toys could be distributed McDonald's ceased distribution and promotion of Playmobil at its restaurants after tests showed that the toy failed to comply with Consumer Product Safety Commission standards designed to prevent children under three from choking on dangerous items.
The Playmobil toys were not involved in any reported choking incidents. McDonald's customers with children under three who received these toys were advised to discontinue their use and return the toys to a McDonald's in exchange for a dessert , a cone, or a refund. However, these sets were considered insensitive and inappropriate for young children, and were never released.
It also came with two Playmobil passengers. Originally, the only way to get one of these Z4s available in deep red or blue was to take a test drive at a BMW dealership in Germany. Shortly thereafter, versions in a pale yellow or eggshell blue were available in European toy stores. Though not manufactured by Playmobil, they were officially licensed. Playmobil pop-up books , in which buildings and settings corresponded to the height of actual Playmobil figures, were sold for a time, as well as a series of comic books , coloring books , and puzzles.
In , Schenk , a German-Hungarian firm, began reproducing bootleg Playmobil figures. They had not received any authorization or license from Geobra Brandstätter. Schenk produced exact copies of the original toy, though some sets were modified to create new types of sets, usually military, from Hungarian history.
Schenk figures, like the early Playmobil figures, do not have moveable hands, and unlike the Playmobil horses, the Schenk horses do not have moveable heads. Schenk figures also bear different colors from their Playmobil counterparts.
They were also made with inferior plastic. Following the collapse of communism , a court ruling forbade the manufacture and distribution of the Schenk figures. However, Schenk bootlegs may still be available in toy shops in Hungary.
Bootleg sets also have been manufactured in China. These sets are not marketed as Playmobil, though they are identical in terms of appearance but not in regards to quality. Sets include a "Noshery" fast food eatery , "Pirate Island", and medieval figures.
Playmobil has received criticisms for the lack of presence of the Catalan Language in the labeling of its products in Catalonia despite being bound by current legislation. There are currently three main factories in Europe: Germany, Malta, and Spain. Each location specializes in a particular area of manufacturing and parts that are needed to assemble a set are delivered to the destination where the items will be placed together and put in their final packaging before sale.
Malta specializes in making the characters and a few accessories, Spain specializes in accessories, and Germany makes the bigger items such as ships and castles.
New Playmobil sets are released over a two-year period, with the non-export markets getting new sets first, then the export markets receiving them a year later.
This is done so that Playmobil will only have to make one very expensive mold for each new piece, and still be able to manufacture the initial stock of the new set. This first stock is what initially stocks store shelves; afterwards Playmobil makes smaller quantities to refill shelves in accordance with demand. In order to produce enough sets to release them to the entire world at the same time, Playmobil would need to buy two of each mold. Eventually, as production for the piece slowed down, the second mold would be useless.
There are a number of Playmobil amusement parks, called FunParks, that feature play areas and events themed around Playmobil toys. There are also FunStores within FunParks and, formerly, in other locations. FunStores are dedicated Playmobil shops that carry full lines of current Playmobil releases.
FunPark and FunStore locations include: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the Polish telecommunications company, see Play telecommunications.
