Playmobil’s Porsche scoops Dad’s Choice Award

Published on: 15th December 2016

Playmobil has rounded off a stellar awards year with a final win for the Porsche 911 Carrera S.

Porsche-480The Dad’s Choice Awards crowned the car as the best toy in its Vehicles category. The product, which has remained popular with fans throughout the year, fought off stiff competition from other entries to be voted the best by the judging panel of fathers, aided by their children.

The Porsche, also commended by the Toy Talk Awards in November, has become a must-have for budding racers big and small. Packed with play value, the working head, tail and dashboard lights let drivers take the toy car for a spin during both day and night. The set comes with a mini Porsche garage where little ones can work with the mechanic to upgrade to a sportier look, developing important motor-skills whilst dipping their toes into imaginative play.

A top manufacturer in pre-school toys, Playmobil has also been recognised for its 123 range of toddler toys, plus Pirates, Children’s Hospital and Zoo themes, throughout 2016.

Jamie Dickinson, marketing manager at Playmobil, commented: “We’ve been absolutely delighted with the success of the Porsche 911 Carrera S this year, as our very first automotive licence. With many of us dads ourselves here at Playmobil, we’ve had great fun racing it with our little ones, and we’re glad the Dad’s Choice panel are in agreement.”
