Playmobil: A Secret Passage to Your Childhood

For over 45 years, children all over the world have had endless fun playing with the 7.5 centimetre Playmobil figures – and now they come to cinematic life in the animated film “Playmobil: The Movie”.

“Toys like Playmobil are like a secret passage that leads directly to your childhood memories”, says “Playmobil: The Movie” director Lino DiSalvo, who earned his spurs at the Walt Disney animation studio: “It was like a trip in a time machine for me. I arrived at the story when I came across some of my old toys again in my parents’ house. That immediately brought me back to my childhood, when I, fortunately, needed nothing more than to think up my own stories with my toys.
