Playmobil wins big at Toy Talk Awards

Playmobil has scooped an accolade at this year’s Toy Talk Awards for its Porsche 911 Carrera S.

The toy received gold status in the Best Construction Toy category, thanks to its varied features including working head, tail and dashboard lights.

Reviewers said: "I’m going to drive a car like this when I’m a grown up" and "I can’t believe I actually made this by myself with no help.”

Jamie Dickinson, marketing manager at Playmobil, added: “The Porsche has been a great success for us this year, and one of my own personal favourites from 2016.

“It’s fantastic to round off the year with an award win for it, and we’re glad the testers enjoyed playing with it.”
