Playmobil Gifts for Christmas

Updated on August 3, 2013

Playmobil. The Gift With Endless Possibilities

I grew up on Playmobil. The company was started in 1876 in Germany and has remained there to this day. Naturally, my mother being from Germany meant our childhood had a lot of German influence. When our oldest German cousins outgrew their Playmobil, we ended up with a substantial collection. All of my siblings and I loved playing. We all had our favorites ranging from the Old West to pirate ships. My little sister and I would make up fantastic stories with the people and play for hours.

I recommend Playmobil as a gift for that very reason. The amount of fun and imagination is as endless as the different types of Playmobil sets. My mother has kept all our Playmobil and I know that one day, my children will enjoy playing it too. Consider giving the gift of a Playmobil set. Not sure what to get? I have lined up some of my favorite options. Both the ones our family had and the ones I would have loved to have.

Princess Fantasy Castle - Perfect For Your Little Princess

Growing up, I always wanted a Playmobil princess castle. This one is perfect for any girl who likes princesses and pretty things. There is a grand staircase for the royal couple and a secret hiding place within the castle tower. Looking at makes me wish I was a little girl again. I would have loved to have this fantasy castle waiting for me on Christmas Eve.

 

Playmobil Princess Sets - A Fairytale Castle Requires a Princess

Outfit your castle with a fantastical unicorn or a magical fairy. Be sure to get more than one princess if you are planning to have the castle being shared.

Pegasus is the mythical horse with wings who can soar through the sky. Who better to pull a carriage fit for a fairy tale princess?

Unicorns are another mythical princess favorite and no girl's castle fantasy is complete without one.

 

Pirate Ship - It Even Floats!

This was one of my brother's absolute favorite playmobil sets. I found out later that even my boyfriend owned one. The ship actually floats on water and comes with 2 bolt guns. You can put more pirates or secret cargo in the ship by removing its top deck. This ship is amazing and provides hours of playful fun.

 

Playmobil Pirate Play Sets - Pirates at Play

You can get more than pirates for your ship. Consider a side rowboat complete with hungry shark or add a thrill with a ghostly Pirate crew. Playmobil has so many pirate options that it's impossible to choose just one...or two.

Playmobil Polizei - In English..Playmobil Police

Playmobil Police Headquarters

Our police station always said, Polizei as we brought it back from Germany (Playmobil was not big in America when I was little.) We used to love playing with the station and putting criminals in the cell extension.

 

Playmobil Police & Thieves

I had no idea how much they have expanded the Playmobil Polizei! Now there are beach police and even a safecracker with getaway car. There are so many options, even ones on a horse or a bicycle. And to think we thought it was cool just to have a police station.

Wild West

When I was little, we had a whole playmobil Wild West, complete with its own Saloon and horses everywhere. I loved this set because there was so much to do. We could have our cowboys having drinks in the saloon and then out in the street dueling with their plastic pistols or set them on their horses to ride away as fast as we could move them. This is one of the greatest of Playmobil ideas and I highly recommend it as a Christmas gift for a boy or girl.

 

Playmobil Western Playsets

What are cowboys without Indians?...Lonely. So incorporate Native Americans into your playmobile wildwest along with a stagecoach for the playmobil bandits and a sheriff to hunt them down.

Animals All Over! Playmobil Zoo

PLAYMOBIL 1.2.3 Large Zoo (Discontinued by manufacturer)

This is one set which I had never seen until several years ago. That is to bad as I'm sure we would have loved playing with all the little animals. If your looking for a gift for a child animal-lover than a playmobil zoo is a great idea. You can purchase just about any unique zoo animal and special little extras to really perfect it for the receiver.

 

Customize Your Playmobil Zoo with Playmobil Animal Sets

I love the Panda family. They look so cute and the penguins with zookeeper. There are so many different animals to put in your Playmobil zoo that it is hard to choose from (you might need to get a second one).

Playmobil Circus

Another Playmobil that came around to late for me! The Playmobil circus can have so many different acts. From magicians to horses...it's like bringing the circus home and getting to play with it for hours on end!

 

Playmobil Circus Sets

I love the Romans Egyptians Set Magician and the daring tightrope artists. There are so many animal acts to choose from ranging from dogs to horses to elephants. So many options to fill your Playmobil circus!

Playmobil Hospital

I love immunology and so many aspects of the medical field. For a child who is into those type of things, consider the Playmobil hospital. They can play doctor and nurse to their heart's content and watch over their recovering patients.

 

Playmobil Medical Personnel

If your Playmobil hospital has only a single nurse and doctor then you need to consider increasing your staff. Playmobil makes it easy by even including patients ready to be treated.

Playmobil Medical Team and Patients

I love how your patients come with the medical team. A match made in medical heaven!

 

Playmobil Dragon Land Castle

PLAYMOBIL Great Dragon Castle

Not into the everyday modern sets? The dragon castle is the perfect fit for those not interested in the fantasy castle. Fierce dragons and brave knights in armor. It's like a fairy-tale come to life.

 

Playmobil Knights VS. Playmobil Dragons - A Knight Needs His Dragon

Playmobil is all about giving you the means to be as creative as you can dream to be. That's why they enjoy making dragon figures and brave knights to battle them. Make sure to find the perfect one for your Playmobil dream.

Playmobil Farm

My roommate would be so sad if I left out this playset. She grew up on a farm and adores the farm life. I prefer the Playmobil farm. No mess or bad smells. All the animal cuteness without any of the work.

 

Playmobil Farm Animals - Dairy Farm? Hogs? Bunnies?

Every farm needs an animal...or ten. Everything from little piglets to mooing cows are available for you to purchase for your Playmobil farm. I prefer the rabbits but I know my friend would insist on at least a few cows.
