Playmobil’s toy Porsche scoops Dad’s Choice Award

Playmobil’s Porsche 911 Carrera S has scooped its final award of the year having secured a Dad’s Choice Award.

The toy car was crowned the winner in the vehicles category by a judging panel of fathers, aided by their children.

“We’ve been absolutely delighted with the success of the Porsche 911 Carrera S this year, as our very first automotive license,” said Jamie Dickinson, marketing manager at Playmobil.

“With many of us dads ourselves here at Playmobil, we’ve had great fun racing it with our little ones, and we’re glad the Dad’s Choice panel are in agreement.”

The company’s toy car was also commended in the Toy Talk Awards, which took place in November.
