Playmobil 6960 1.2.3 Construction Truck
Budding young foremen will love the colourful, playful nature of the Playmobil construction truck. Kids can get stuck in by transporting cargo around on the truck, seating one minifigure in the front. It also comes with a couple of construction themed accessories to bring the playset to life.
Toys like Playmobil are particularly designed for youngsters between the ages of four and twelve. Due to the company's belief that older children do not play with these sorts of toys, they have refrained from developing toys based on less well-known historical eras. Many people own or collect Playmobil toys, and they like using the toys to create short films.
Native Americans, construction workers, and knights were among the themes included in the earliest Playmobil sets.
Playmobil hands were created to be capable of grasping and holding various things in their palms. Earlier figurines had arms that were a single piece of metal. Since 1982, all figures feature hands that rotate at the wrist in addition to the rest of the body. Almost all Playmobil figurines are unidentified, enabling youngsters to make up their own stories about the individuals they encounter. Exceptions to this rule include several of the characters from the three Playmobil-inspired computer video games released by Ubi Soft Montreal between 1998 and 1999, including Alex, Hype, and Laura, the protagonists of their respective games, as well as other characters from the games. A chiseled-out hairpiece with a button form for attaching headgear was used on the initial figures, but a subsequent revision gave the hairpiece a more natural rounded shape, forcing another modification of the headgear. A broad chestpiece that suggested a skirt differentiated the initial female figures until a redesign substituted a more exposed chestpiece with more shown breasts and somewhat slimmer arms to identify the second female figures.
The majority of Playmobil sets need some level of assembly on the part of the owner. Buildings, in particular, come with thorough instructions on how to assemble and disassemble them. When Playmobil first came out, the pieces were meant to fit together using a system of tabs and slots known as the "Steck-System." In recent years, a new building approach has been devised that does away with the usage of tabs and instead makes use of tiny connection parts and a specialised tool instead. Playmobil's regular building technique is known as "System-X," and it has replaced the Steck-System, with the exception of special reissues, as the industry standard.
