Hans Beck (1929œ2009), the "Father of Playmobil", created it. Beck was a trained cabinetmaker and a model aircraft enthusiast, a product he presented to Geobra Brandstätter. The company's owner, Horst Brandstätter, ordered Beck to create children's toys instead. (The firm used to make casket embellishments and handles.)

Beck spent three years (1971œ1974) creating Playmobil.

Beck did research to create a toy that was simple yet adaptable. He believed that too much flexibility would stifle children's creativity and too much rigidity would frustrate them. His toy was designed to fit in a child's hand and had a giant head, a broad grin, and no nose. "I would put the small figurines in their hands without explaining," Beck said. "They took them immediately... They made up situations for them. They never got bored of them ".

The 1973 oil crisis made Playmobil a viable product. Rising oil costs forced Geobra Brandstätter, for whom Beck was head of development, to produce goods that used less solid plastic than the hula hoops and other huge plastic toys it had been creating.
