Renowned toy company Playmobil has recently teamed up with DreamWorks, as was confirmed by the company in a recent image announcing a new “must play” How to Train Your Dragon line.
The news was announced earlier this week via the company’s social media accounts, in the form of an intriguing image confirming that new How to Train Your Dragon toys will be added to the company’s extensive toy line in 2017. The new range sounds like it’ll feature a diversity of Dragons characters, according to the official press release, allowing fans to“meet their favourite characters and play out familiar and new adventures in their own playrooms.” In keeping with Playmobil’s classic figures, the new Norse heroes will each stand 7.5cm tall.

“We are excited to bring the world of ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ to life as PLAYMOBIL toys. The epic story with its adorable characters and amazing scenery is just perfect to encourage hours of imaginative role play,” said Silke Heinrich, Executive Board Member at PLAYMOBIL. “We are pleased to be aligning with DreamWorks to launch a new line of toy sets with a strong appeal among our joint target group. We believe the Dragons products will ignite our fans’ passion even more and at the same time invite more children to get to know the play benefits of PLAYMOBIL.”
How to Train Your Dragon isn’t the only franchise coming to Playmobil next year. Back in June, the manufacturer confirmed that Ghostbusters toys would also be hitting shelves next year, in a new partnership with Sony.
