Found this blog which features quite a few vintage adverts from different countries. I've linked here to the "playmobil" tag, which returns all his playmo themed posts, just keep scrolling down for much goodness!

Some lovely old adverts there. And Denmark is not a country which often features here on PF, so its good to see PM is thriving there (well it was, back in the 70's and 80's at least). I think the eighth Danish advert page was wrongly captioned as 1983, because all the klickies on there had fixed wrists, so probably no later than 1980 I reckon.

And what a long list of toys are featured on that site!  8}

I can remember some of these pictures in the very old catalogues back in the late 70s and early 80s. Playmobil was such a novelty back then , each new set or theme would casue such a stir at schools. Golden era of playmobil if you ask me , 1978 to 1995  :wave:
