In the Chamartín train station in Madrid, Playmobil will set up extensive dioramas for the nostalgic public in its third annual convention in Spain, April 20 through 22.
For only €2, adults can rediscover the imaginative plastic dolls, toy pirate ships, gas stations, helicopters, and the rest of Playmobil’s microcosmic world that enveloped your childhood so lovingly not too many years ago. Spain has taken a special liking to Playmobil with its own confederation of aficionados.
Activities for children as well as those who were children yesterday are planned. These include collectible stores and workshops to learn how to fine-tune characters.
Convention hours: April 20, 2007 from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.; April 21 from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.; and April 22 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
