Hi Graham B,

yap, Playmobil is a very popular brand here. But it is ridiculously expensive. That's why I started looking for better offers abroad. Even though there is the shipping cost expense I still get it much cheaper .I think that Playmobil Inc. could have increase the brand distribution if they make an effort to reduce boxes size (because shipping costs are effected by the volume). in the fashion bussines, the british NEXT have done it, and they are selling here alot without having even one "real" store.

Hello from the Netherlands,
Its a pitty to hear Playmobil is so expensive in your country.
And yes the box sizes are often huge. On the otherhand in general children in like big boxes.

There are international box sizes which make the best use of container space and so help keep shipping costs down, and Playmobil boxes meet these standards.

Playmofire, it's true. It does made best to fit all the logistic chain. Nevertheless, there are sets that when opened you found out more than half of the package is empty. I agree that kids love the big packages, but If i was to be in charge i might have thought of another solution to reduce costs. such as final packaging in destination country if possible.

Hello from the Netherlands.

Some boxes are so big because the baseplate is one peace or part of a building is in one piece. It's the choice they make, easy building or smaller box and lots of parts.
When thinking outside the box you make the greatest things happen.

Like this one I opened yesterday...  :-[
In general customers don’t like wasteful packaging. At least Playmobil don't use any void fill, so no waste there.
