Playmobil presented with special award by toy industry

Published on: 26th January 2018

Playmobil has taken home a special award at the Toy Industry Awards 2017.

The toy manufacturer was presented with the Special Recognition Award at the ceremony on Tuesday (January 23rd) in London.

The award was given in memory of Uffe Kloster, Playmobil’s UK commercial director, who sadly passed away in November last year, and to reflect the strength of the business in the toy market over the last few years.

Jamie Dickinson, marketing and display manager at Playmobil, said the whole team was very moved by the award.

“This award not only recognises what Playmobil has contributed to the toy market, but was also a lovely gesture from the industry to Uffe. Uffe was much loved by his family, but he was also hugely liked and respected by his colleagues and all that had the pleasure of working with him during his years in the toy industry.”
