Playmobil Scenes from a 2012 Catalog

Musings By Joschik
Christian obsesses over collectibles, antiques and toys more than the average person, but (he believes) in a productive way. Documenting collectibles has been a passion since working on a book about his favorite childhood toys from Timpo 41 years ago.



I just found these in an email I got from Playmobil in 2012 and thought that they do a great job in embedding their toys in these landscapes that want you (or the kid within you) to play with them.

The German Police drive some AMG Tuned Mercedes!


I like that Tribolite as a Fossil.


My sister early on said, “I live in a house, but my home is in the stable”.  In Playmobilland, her house would be the stable.


Not sure what this is but looks cool.


I live in Colorado, so this feels like home.


This is a Great Train diorama (and I would love to see that container crane in Playmobile).


Even these single figures are just really well presented


Do you have a favorite catalog style from way back?
