The Nürnberg Spielwarenmesse traditionally kicks off the new year for the toy industry, as toy producers, wholesalers and resellers get together to discover new trends and products, and plan their orders for the year.

It is at this annual event that the newest products and trends for the upcoming toy season are presented to the toy industry, long before they land on the shelves of toy stores and in shopping malls. 

Nurnberg Messehallen
International Toy Fair Nürnberg (5.02.2004-10.02.2004)


PLAYMOBIL® has a permanent show room at the Nürnberg Messehallen, where toy resellers can talk with their sales representatives and place their re-stocking orders.

During the toy fair, however, the show room is the place where the novelties for the year ahead are officially unveiled. The show room is then redecorated to match a particular novelty product or theme and prototypes of the novelties are showcased in special displays and promotional material. PLAYMOBIL® traditionally gives away a free sample figure to Fair visitors.

Although many collectors and fans would love to visit the Nürnberg Messehallen on these days, the toy fair is only open to professionals: which means that you will only get in with a valid invitation / entry card provided by one of the exhibitors. Without such an invitation, you have to be able to proof that you are active within the toy industry or that your interest in toys originates from your business background. 


WHO ARE THE WINNERS OF OUR "30 YEARS GOLDEN KNIGHT" TOY FAIR GIVE-AWAY SWEEPSTAKES?

The PLAYMOBIL® give-away at the Nürnberg International Toy Fair was a special edition of the 30 years golden knight that is to hit stores at the end of February. This sampler figure does not come with a horse, and has the 30th birthday logo on its shield and flag, instead of the royal lion-head.

We organized a sweepstake amongst those kind donators who have helped support collectobil in recent times. The following 5 lucky winners will soon find this very special "GOLDEN KNIGHT" gift in the mail:
