Playmobil to launch How to Train Your Dragon play-sets

Playmobil has partnered with DreamWorks Animation to develop a series of How to Train Your Dragon play-sets.

“We are excited to bring the world of How to Train Your Dragon to life as Playmobil toys," said Silke Heinrich, member of the executive board at Playmobil.

"The epic story with its adorable characters and amazing scenery is just perfect to encourage hours of imaginative role play. We are pleased to be aligning with DreamWorks to launch a new line of toy sets with a strong appeal among our joint target group. We believe the Dragons products will ignite our fans’ passion even more and at the same time invite more children to get to know the play benefits of Playmobil.”
