Top Ten Playmobil Sets – Gift Guide

In France the official slogan for Playmobil is “en avant les histories” – loosely translating to “create your own stories”.

With this week’s Zavvi gift guide that’s exactly what we’re encouraging you to do, as we count down ten of the best pop culture inspired Playmobil sets that are currently available.

There’s fun for all ages here: you’re never too young or too old to start creating your own stories.
