A ‘Pregnant Woman’ has been included in Series 3 of Playmobil’s mystery-bagged pocket money line, Fi?ures.
The expectant mother character, designed to be in the early stages of pregnancy, was made after Playmobil received requests from ‘children across the globe’, who send in hundreds of ideas and drawings to the toy maker every month.
Fi?ures Series 3 has two new assortments of twelve figures, one for boys and one for girls, priced at £1.99 per pack.
Other characters include a British Guardsman, a Pop Star, and a Statue of Liberty styled character (Playmobil didn't say which one was responsible for the pregnant woman).
Fi?ures characters come in pieces and must be constructed so kids can build, take apart, or mix and match body parts and accessories to create their own characters.
Fi?ures is currently Playmobil UK’s number one seller.
Jamie Dickinson, marketing manager for Playmobil UK commented: “We know how much children love to recreate things they see around them in everyday life, so we’re thrilled to introduce the very first pregnant Playmobil figure to this collection.
“With the launch of the third range, there are now over 400 possible combinations and characters to create with Fi?ures.”
