First NHL Playmobil playsets take center ice on Oct. 15

CRANBURY, NJ —October 1, 2015— PLAYMOBIL, one of the top global toy manufacturers, celebrated today the official launch of the first officially-licensed NHL® playsets. Announced earlier this year, PLAYMOBIL’s partnership with the National Hockey League marks the very first licensed line of PLAYMOBIL toys in North America with the full range of products available for pre-order on Amazon.com beginning today. Just in time for the start of the 2015-2016 NHL® season, the full product line will be available at specialty retail stores nationwide beginning October 15.

The initial PLAYMOBIL NHL® figures focus on the beloved Original SixTM franchises – Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs – with both player and goalie figures for each respective team. Young hockey fans can expand their imagination and fandom throughout the season with the full assortment of playsets available, including a full NHL Hockey Arena with score-keeper, a Zamboni® ice resurfacing machine, NHL referees and the coveted Stanley Cup® Trophy.

 
“We are excited to be able to offer children and their families the chance to show off their hockey skills and act out epic game play moments with the launch of PLAYMOBIL’s brand new NHL toy line,” said Sarah Blair-Miller, Marketing Manager at PLAYMOBIL USA. “As the official start to the 2015-2016 season is here, our new line of interactive and functional playsets bring this iconic game to life at home while kids follow their favorite players and teams throughout the season and beyond.”
“The upcoming NHL season promises to be one of our best yet, and now PLAYMOBIL and the NHL have partnered up to give kids a great way to express their appreciation for NHL hockey,” said Dave McCarthy, NHL Vice President of Consumer Products Licensing. “The NHL is focused on giving families with children access to toys and other experiences that are NHL authentic. PLAYMOBIL has decades of experience with creating top-notch toy products, so they really are an ideal partner for us to fulfill that vision and promote the love for the game of hockey to children and families everywhere.”
