Thank you, Herr Beck


I suppose that I’ve spent a fair bit of time here talking about Playmobil, which is understandable because it’s both a toy of fabulous quality and of remarkable play value (the two don’t always coincide.)

The sad news of the death of Hans Beck, the creator of Playmobil, reached us this morning. Here is a link to an obituary in Deutsche Welle.

The world of toys is a little poorer today. We’ll miss you, Herr Beck.
