Playmobil to continue V&A half term sponsorship

Published on: 18th February 2019

Sponsorship of the V&A Museum of Childhood’s exhibition, A Pirate’s Life for Me, will continue throughout the school break.

The V&A museum will offer children and families a wide range of pirate-themed activities, and will give away free Playmobil pirate hats and activity sheets throughout the week.

The exhibition was developed in collaboration with children, and allows them to explore the world of pirates through toys, games, original costumes, books and comics over the past 300 years. Kids have the opportunity to get into character, walk the plank and explore a large-scale ship, and will also be in with a chance of winning the Playmobil Pirate Raiders’ Ship – a deluxe floating model which can also be upgraded to feature an underwater motor.

Details on how to enter the prize draw will be prominently displayed at the V&A Museum of Childhood’s information desk and will be marketed across the museum’s social media channels. The competition will run until the exhibition closes on 22nd April 2019.

The exhibition has also seen Playmobil display its pirate collection, including the Pirate’s Treasure Island, Pirate Raiders’ Ship and 1.2.3 Pirate Ship.

Jamie Dickinson, marketing & display manager at Playmobil UK, commented: “At Playmobil, we strive to support events that encourage learning through active play, as well as those which allow families to have a fun day out together. We’re delighted to continue our support for this exhibition across half-term, and are hopeful that all the little pirates who attend enjoy the opportunity to interact with our fantastic toys while they learn more about the perils and excitement of life on the high seas.”
