Playmobil brings fun to Kidtropolis

This half term saw the biggest kid’s event in London take to London’s ExCEL venue for the annual Kidtropolis show, with Playmobil making its first appearance.

With a variety of different play tables set up children and parents alike were able to let their imagination grow through free play, getting hands-on with lots of different sets, which proved to be a huge success with all visitors to the stand.

The firm’s licensed ranges were out in force, with Ghostbusters and How to Train Your Dragon taking the spotlight, which both proved to be a hit with attendees. 

Children also had the chance to have their photo taken next to the heroic Hiccup and a larger than life version of everyone’s favourite Ghostbusters villain, the Stay Puft Marshmallow man.

There was also a special appearance from two of the Playmobil Ghostbuster costume characters, as they posed for pictures whilst making sure ExCeL was free from any spooky goings on.

"We had a really great time at Kidtropolis this year and loved giving visitors the chance to come and play to their heart’s content," said Jamie Dickinson, marketing manager from Playmobil.
