May he be in a great castle in the sky filled with maddeningly small pieces that are addictive and fun.

By the way you MUST visit Playmobil if you ever get to Germany.

First off thank you for using my image I am quite honored .

Second May he rest in peace and live forever in his little plastic people He was able to create such a simple joyful item which spread so much happiness to children and adults alike . Not many get this opportunity and hopefully Playmobil will never forget his vision
