Playmobil to launch first-ever licensed product with Ghostbusters play-sets

Playmobil has teamed up with Sony Pictures Consumer Products to develop a range of play-sets based on the original Ghostbusters movie.

The range will be Playmobil’s first ever line of licensed products, and is expected to hit shelves in summer 2017.

”We are thrilled to be collaborating with Sony Pictures to launch this new range of toys," said Silke Heinrich, member of the executive board at Playmobil.

"The Ghostbusters sets will enrich our play system and enable an entirely new play experience. This licensed line of toys is an important milestone for our brand, which will make new and long-standing fans even more excited about Playmobil. It’s like building a bridge between kids and their parents, who both love the epic stories of their Playmobil and Ghostbusters heroes.”
