How Playmobil Is Celebrating Its 50th Birthday All Year Long (Gifts & Decorative Accessories)

This was a commissioned project in 2022 that combined my LOVE of stained-glass with Playmobil. The stained-glass was designed by Sasha Ward. Inspiration for the project was based on Playmobil365 and Playmobil 5053 City Life Church.

The lead in the February 2012 issue of MONOCLE was about charm and this quote fits PLAYMOBIL® perfectly.

“Taking a punt on a quality [charm] that can’t be measured in facts and figures is deemed the ultimate risk. And yet charm is arguably the most important factor for securing repeat business, which in today’s financial climate is invaluable.”

PLAYMOBIL® oozes charm and their customer support and product quality is unsurpassed.
