Since 1974, Playmobil has been a staple toy in households around the world. The well recognised smile of the Playmobil figurines have delighted generations of children time and time again with their unique take on the toy world with endless miniature worlds to get creative and imaginative with. Not only are children benefiting from Playmobil but parents and educators are also witnessing the joy and practical skill development that Playmobil brings. With such a unique toy line such as Playmobil, children of all ages and abilities can slip into different roles, recreating worldly experiences and routines in miniature that allow children to act out in a safe environment. From historical figures such as pirates and knights, to modern construction workers and firefighters. There are many stories, roles and themes that children can process thanks to Playmobil. The wonderful designers at Playmobil are constantly creating fun and interesting new Playmobil sets to deliver hours of entertainment to children across the globe. The figurines are truly universal, with different items and outfits available to interchange with other sets, meaning the play opportunities are endless. What makes Playmobil so popular is the endless story-telling possibilities in which children can conjure up their own rules and their own world quickly and without any involvement from others - or waiting around for parents to set up the toys. The only limitations are from a child's imagination. Standing at 7.5cm tall, the smiling figurines, which form the keystone of the whole Playmobil sets, are ideally proportioned for youngsters to hold and manipulate to their heart's content. Playmobil sets have endless benefits for child development. These include positive social, cognitive, motor and emotional aspects of their growing understanding of the world around them and of themselves. Some positive social impacts for children include co-operation, sharing and leadership skills while skills such as logic, problem solving, creativity and concentration help develop a child’s cognitive aptitude. Further benefits include improved physical coordination and a sharpening of the senses. The emotional well-being of children is equally important to their development, which is why Playmobil helps bring a sense of enjoyment and a child’s freedom to express themselves through play. In turn this will build self-confidence and self control as your child grows more comfortable in their own skin.
