“Life in the middle ages” was the premise of this play world. A medieval village is further connected to a forested region with two castles and various other structures. Key characters range from knights and guards to a mysterious cult and a township of villagers and farmers. This was the very first Playmobil® play world we put together. It was a lot of fun learning about and tracking down some of the vintage Playmobil® knight-themed sets from the 70s and 80s. The Steck system used by vintage castles and Tudor-style framework houses is great for putting together custom buildings. When you build Playmobil® sets that are 30 or so years old you get a real appreciation for the history of this product line.
