Playmobil Castles and Knights

Updated on October 11, 2011

 Playmobil Toys were created by Hans Beck of Germany. He was a cabinet maker by trade and created airplane models as a hobby. His company Geobra Brandstätter, asked him to create a toy line for children that was simple yet imaginative. Thus the Playmobil company emerged. The company has been around for 25 years and rivals Lego. It has evolved from the traditional Indian and cowboys themes. Now Playmobil covers ever facet of the imagination. From Farms to Castles and Pirate ships.

 This Playmobil action set includes three knights dressed in armour and helmets.  The knight battle on a castle like structure that is complete with a working cannon.  The brave knoght have weapons ranging from spears to swords and shields.  All pieces of the weaponry are interchangeable and even the helmets.  This Playmobil action set can be used with other knight and castle sets!

Playmobil has some intricate and fantastic castles. I haven't seen any castle as fantastic as this. Take a look at this Playmobil Great Dragon Playset. The castle looks authentic with its trees growing on the side and trap door and drawbridge. it even features a dungeon and a beacon. There are plenty of character and other things to go along with this castle set. Included in this set is a red dragon a glow in the dark skeleton and a some fantasy night creatures. Who wouldn't want to play with this castle? Parents be warned there is some assembly required. If the Castles are anything like the Playmobil Pirate ships you best put it together before he birthday party.

Playmobil Knights Empire Castle

 The Playmobil Knights Empire Castle is a fantastically big castle.  It contains a drawbridge, a trap door in the tower and a kings throne.  Parent reviews comment oh how the working parts of the castle such as the bucket and the drawbridge and trap door were particularly appealing to their children.  The castle is so detailed there is even a hole in the castle wall to represent a toilet!  This castle needs assembly and it will take you two hours to assemble.

 This playset comes with a part of a castle and four figures. There are two knights sitting on horses and many many accessories.  Included are a crown, a chest of gold  a catapult and a grappling hook.

This castle looks pretty sharp with it's red accessories. This castle is realistic with its weapons rack on the inside of the door. There are four figures and a horse, complete with weaponry. There are a few additional pieces such as a throne, treasure chest and table and chairs in this set.

 Yes there be dragons here!  Here at Dragon Rock.  This Dragon set contains one Red Dragon, a dragon Cave, two knights one horse and a catapult with fire.  The parent reviews are favorable.  The dragon wings can come off but can also snap right back on.   This toy would go great with the Playmobil Rock castle or any of the castles.  The Dragon could raid any of them!

 The movie " How to Train Your Dragon"  has definitely brought Dragons and dragon lore to our children's attention.  This Playmobil Red Dragon Play set has a wonderful Red dragon that breaths fire.  There is also a knight to do battle with this fierce creature. Parent reviews are very favorable to this product and were used in conjunction with other Playmobil castles or Playmobil Dragon sets.

 This Playmobil Dragon has an 18 inch wingspan and stands nearly a foot tall.  The dragon breathes LED fire and has a rider.  The rider has a cape lance and axe.  This dragon looks ferocious with an open mouth and claws outstretched.  It would please any dragon lover!

      This is fascinating and very unique. I once had an antique book on making toys; kind of sorry I sold it. Great hub.
