Collectobil - The Trol license (Brazil)

Collectobil Collectors Guide - History


In the seventies and early eighties, PLAYMOBIL® was produced for the Brazilian market under license from Geobra by a company named "TROL"

Production started in October 1976 and most sets were complete reproductions of original Geobra sets, only some sets were customized with brown faced figures and typical Brazilian color palettes.

The factory closed its doors in 1988, after the respectable Minister of Economy Mr. "Dilson Domingos Funaro ", who took the initiative to produce PLAYMOBIL® over there, had passed away. Three years later the license was picked up by "Estrela", another Brazilian company.
