Brachiosaurus (Playmobil)

The ground is shaking. Is it an earthquake? No, it’s just Brachiosaurus! This gentle giant is hungry and looking for his favourite fruit tree. Not surprisingly, the Brachiosaurus is HUGE. It stands nearly 27 cm tall and measures 51 cm long, making it the largest animal figure in any Playmobil line. Although its main colour …

Cave Bear (Playmobil)

Two brave hunters are stalking one of the mightiest of beasts: the cave bear. They are armed with their best stone weapons, but will those be enough against the bear’s great strength, teeth, and claws? The Playmobil cave bear(Ursus spelaeus) measures about 10.5 cm long and is medium brown in colour with black eyes, a …

Deinonychus and Velociraptors (Playmobil)

The Velociraptor pack has come across an unguarded nest of eggs. But a hungry Deinonychus has also found the nest, and he’s not in the mood to share! The Playmobil Deinonychus is a small figure, standing only up to 9 cm tall and measuring 14 cm long. That said, it is probably the scariest-looking dinosaur …

Dimetrodon (Playmobil)

Much to the delight of fans, Playmobil brought back its dinosaurs line in 2013. Although most of the prehistoric creatures were recolours from 2007, there were some new ones as well. These included the familiar and ferocious Dimetrodon. The Dimetrodon measures a good 17 cm long and is 9 cm tall including the sail. Its …

Explorer with Dinos (1.2.3 by Playmobil)

Playmobil’s 1.2.3 line is the equivalent of Lego’s Duplo line: simpler, safer versions of their main products aimed at toddlers. When I saw that there was a dinosaur-themed set among the 2018 releases, I knew that I had to get it for my son. As I write this, he’s still far too little to understand …

Mammoth Skeleton Tent with Cavemen (Playmobil)

As storm clouds gather overhead, a trio of human hunters work quickly to finish erecting their shelter. Fortunately, the mammoth that they recently killed and butchered has provided far more than just food. Its large, sturdy bones form an effective structure while its thick fur hide acts as a waterproof covering. As the hunters settle …

Pteranodon (Playmobil)

From his perch atop the tree, a Pteranodon sights a fish swimming in a pond. Quickly he spreads his wings, swoops down, and snatches it in his bill! It’s virtually unthinkable for a dinosaur toyline not to have at least one pterosaur and Playmobil has gone with that most familiar of flyers, Pteranodon. This one measures 12 …

Sabre-Toothed Cats (Playmobil)

For ages, the sabre-toothed cats have been the top predators in their ecosystem. But now humans have appeared on the scene, and what they lack in brute strength, they make up for in cunning and intelligence! Rounding out Playmobil’s prehistoric megafauna is this the menacing pair of sabre-tooths, clearly belonging to the Smilodon genus. Each …

Stegosaurus (Playmobil)

Another all-new animal in the 2013 Playmobil Dinos line is the famous Stegosaurus. This one is a mother whose eggs are about to hatch, but she’d better keep a close eye on that hungry crocodilian who lives nearby! This version of the “roofed lizard” measures 23 cm long from nose to tail tip and stands …

Triceratops (Playmobil)

A Triceratops and her baby are munching on yummy plants. Suddenly the mother senses that something is wrong. Quickly she leads her baby to safety as the nearby volcano begins to rumble! Playmobil’s version of the número uno ceratopsid measures 23 cm long and stands 9 cm tall at the hips. Its colour scheme is …

Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptors (Playmobil)

For 40 years, Playmobil has been one of the most popular toylines in the world, famed for their simple yet elaborate designs and wide-ranging themes. Let us take a trip through their 2007 Dinosaurs line. We begin with Tyrannosaurus rex and a pair of Velociraptors. This T. rex measures 32 cm long and stands about …

Upcoming releases from Playmobil (New for 2023)

Images of Playmobil’s 2023 Dino Rise line have appeared online, but disappointingly, all the prehistoric animals are repaints of previously released moulds, most of which have been in production since 2007. They still look like they’ll be fun to play with, however! Tyrannosaurus rex. Spinosaurus. Triceratops. Deinonychus. Dimorphodon and Velociraptor. Baby Spinosaurus. Baby Tyrannosaurus rex.

Woolly Mammoth and Baby (Playmobil)

In 2011, Playmobil’s Stone Age line took its fans to the ancient world of cave people and prehistoric beasts. And just as you can’t have a dinosaur line without T. rex, you can’t have a Pleistocene megafauna line without Mammuthus primigenius, the iconic woolly mammoth. Including its tusks, the Playmobil woolly mammoth measures about 20 …
