Do you ask Playmobil to make special products?
« on: February 11, 2008, 21:19:34 »
Hi all!  :wave:

I write only to ask you this question: do you ask Playmobil to make special products?

I think that if some kind of set, of a particular theme, is asked by many collectors, perhaps the Playmobil people will be interested in producing it to make a good bussiness. Perhaps it may be unnecessary, if Playmobil research and development department already read this and other Playmobil fori (is it the plural for forum in English?). Perhaps you do and I am being obvious.

If you want to contact them, I wrote them in English to this e-mail and they were kind, warm and receptive in their treatment: CRM_Export@playmobil.de (even when it is not the research and development department, they told me they will pass the ideas to them).

Thank you for hearing, and please be patient if I am re-inventing the wheel.
Good luck.
Pyrrhus.

they are very receptive...

well, I am aware of several people sending suggestions to playmobil...

I think they got got inspiration from collectors just as well as from kids.
My feeling is that the creative people in the design lab are consuming
all suggestions they get and filter the things out they like.

unfortunately, they never gave credit to anyone...
...but we already saw several examples, where cool customs suddenly
became playmobil reality...  :yup:

so, keep on rockin' playmobil!  8-)

best,
socrates

Just wrote to them asking for an Ancient Greeks theme - thanks for the email address!

When I've tried using the email address on the Playmobil UK website I always get a bounceback in German, so I don't think that system works.

Greeks! Great idea!

I've been developing an idea for a playmobil museum line. It might be best through the direct service. Conceptually, the center will be a large room (for dinosaurs, or a pirate ship, etc), with system-x expansion halls: split-level platforms with a window dividing the levels. One side is the patrons' side and kids can set up museum displays on the other side using any of their playmobil themes.
