Playmobil reveals Back to the Future advent calendar

Published on: 14th September 2020

Launching on the 18th September, the calendar, based on the iconic movie franchise, is a must for any fan.

This year, the classic 1980s film Back to the Future celebrates its 35th anniversary. To commemorate the milestone, Playmobil has launched a brand-new, limited-edition Advent Calendar featuring scenes from the iconic film franchise.

Behind every door is a gift, from figures to vehicles to accessories, providing fans with 24-days’ worth of time travelling entertainment during the lead up to the big day. Once all the surprises have been discovered, the box folds open into a backdrop to complete the iconic town square scene.

The calendar lets kids recreate classic scenes from Back to the Future and Back to the Future II, including Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker having a chat, and Doc Brown and Marty in the Twin Pines Mall carpark from 1985. For fans that want to travel further back in time to the 1950s, Marty can meet (and escape from) Biff on his skateboard.

In addition, each calendar comes with a lenticular-effect picture, so fans can watch as the McFly family disappears before their eyes.

The advent calendar is available from 18th September, and joins the existing range of 2020 advent calendars that has just been released.

The range ofers something for everyone. Each 24-door calendar contains a range of figures, accessories and vehicles, while the box can then be folded out to create a scenic backdrop.

There are five different Christmas-themed calendars to choose from: Christmas in the Forest, Santa’s Workshop, Christmas Toy Store and Christmas Ball are all priced at sub-£25, while the sub-£50 jumbo Family Christmas advent calendar lets kids build a two-storey doll house complete with furnishings and stickers for decoration. After Christmas, the labels can be removed so that the house can also be used in neutral form all year round.
