Fun Facts

The father of Playmobil was a German inventor called Hans Beck (1929–2009). Hans started life as a carpenter, making cabinets. This is interesting because Playmobil biggest competitor, Lego, was also founded by a carpenter.
In 1974, Hans created three mini figures and Playmobil was born. The original figures were a construction worker, a knight, and a native American.

This ship made it all the way to the Caribbean, via Denmark, Norway and Sweden but it was given a helping hand by a Norwegian vessel that picked it up out at sea and took it onto the Caribbean!
