Playmobil

  • From which age on can my child play with Playmobil?

    Every box specifies the target age group for which it’s destined.

    Based on certain criteria (presence of small parts, handling, …) our development team determines whether a toy is suitable for a particular age group or not.

    A toy that is too difficult to handle for a 2/3-year old, can only muster up frustration.

    Of course the progression of each child is different, that’s why you have to make out yourself whether a toy is suitable for your child or not.

  • Which themes are coming up soon?

    In spring, at the Toy Fair in Nürnberg (Germany), the new themes for the coming year are presented.

    During this occasion we also present our new catalogue.

    In fall we publish a second catalogue full of nice things.

  • The Building Crane 3262/4080 is not working. What can be the cause of this?

    It may be that the different parts of the crane are not firmly connected.

    May we advise you to firmly press the jib into the crane tower, and the crane tower into the base.

    If the problem isn’t resolved with these recommendations, please contact our Service Department through ‘Contact’ on the homepage of your Finish PLAYMOBIL site.

  • My RC-car is moving backwards instead of forward, and to the left instead of the right. What can be the cause of this?

    Perhaps the reversing switch n° 6 or 7 is not set correctly.

    Please use the two small switches on the top of the transmitter, to align the RC-car.

    You can also consult the building instruction about this.

  • The RC-module 4856 doesn’t stay put in my police car 5528. What can I do?

    The yellow pins on top of the engine should be firmly pressed onto the bottom of the chassis.

    This way the engine is correctly secured and the police car can shoot in action.

  • Is the storage battery pack for the older trains 4016, 4017, 4010, 4011 and 4085 still available?

    This battery and charger are no longer available; they have been replaced by the Battery Case-7829.

    This battery case is an empty shell which has the shape of the storage battery pack, in which you must put 4 AA batteries 1,5 V(not included).

    You can order the Battery Case-7829 through our Service Department through ‘Contact’ on the homepage of your Finish PLAYMOBIL site.

  • The walls of castle 4866 don’t seem to fit, do I do something wrong?

    Usually the problem lies within an error during construction.

    Maybe the following information can be useful:

    The square tower has along each side 2x three holes used for connecting the walls.

    The walls should be clicked into the 3 front holes at the right and the left of the tower, to form a sturdy rampart.

    If the walls are clicked in the rear holes, the walls will constantly snap open.

  • Why does my infrared driven car drives along in fits and starts?

    These IR-cars are unmanned robotic vehicles, which are steered from a distance by the inhabitants of ‘Futur Planet’.

    This ‘jerky’ driving is not a sign of a shortcoming; it is so intended by our design department.

    This behavior emphasizes the futuristic character of our IR-cars.

  • Overload protection of the steering mechanism in IR-cars 5151, 5153 and 5156.

    To improve the lifetime of the vehicle, the IR-car has an overload protection. This is a built-in mechanism that protects the steering mechanism.

    When the overload protection is enabled, the axle moves loosely back and forth, and the vehicle can no longer be steered.

    To raise the protection please move the front axle until it clicks.

  • The reactors of my Turbojet 5150 are no longer in their initial position (perpendicular), and make a rattling/crackling sound when moved. Is something broken?

    There’s a toothed shaft in the Turbojet, on which the reactors are connected, this shaft allows the 4 reactors to move simultaneously and in-parallel.

    When you manually change the position of one pair of reactors, the other 2 aren’t parallel anymore.

    You can without a problem turn the reactors back in their starting position (perpendicular).

    In doing so you hear a rattling/cracking noise, this is in no way a sign of a shortcoming.

    The gears of the reactors move over the teeth of the toothed shaft until it clicks back in their initial position (perpendicular).

  • I’ve got problems using my RC Underwater Motor-5536, can you help me please?

    Maybe the following information can be useful:



    Starting the game:

    Please attach the battery case with the batteries underneath the underwater motor.

    Place the remote control with its indent 6 (see manual) perpendicular on the underwater motor.

    Keep button 2 pressed until LED-lights 3, 4 and 5(see manual) lit up, this may take a couple of seconds. LED 3 and 4 light up green, LED 5 stays red.

    Sync the remote control with the underwater motor, by pressing the sync button 7 (see manual) for a few seconds until LED 5 remains green.

    You can now install the motor underneath the ship.



    Ending the game:

    Switch off the remote control and disconnect the battery case from the motor, in order to interrupt the power supply. In doing so, you avoid draining the batteries needlessly.

    For further instructions please consult the manual.

  • Can I glue broken parts? Which glue can I use?

    Our toys are designed accordingly to our well known assembly concept.

    The play value of Playmobil is largely based on the ability to build and undo the constructions.

    For this reason and also because children can be in touch with glue, we do not recommend gluing our toys.

    Also for these reasons we can’t give you any advice on which glue to use.

    Did you know that PLAYMOBIL gives a guarantee of 2 years, during this period you can ask a replacement part through our Service Department (please submit your proof of purchase).
