Work hard, Playmobil hard: get into the plastic VW bus
Playmobil could have the answer his Volkswagen T1 Camping Bus. Yes, it’s a shadow-casting toy that is much smaller than an actual VW bus, but at $ 49.99, this German plastic van is also a fraction of the price of the real thing. You also don’t have to be a kid to enjoy this toy, as Playmobil markets it for people ages 5+ and 99+. Sorry people who have passed the century line – guess what, this van is just not for you.
However, those within the Playmobil assigned age group can enjoy the intricate exterior and interior details of this T1 camper van. This includes the split windshield, the luggage rack mounted on the roof and the two-tone exterior cladding (red and white). Inside, Playmobil equips this van with a bench that can be converted into a bed, a folding table, a sink and a refrigerator.
Of course, you can’t really use the camping equipment of the little VW, but you can experience the two figures that Playmobil contains with its T1 camper van as an example. Alternatively, you can put the little van on your desk and dresser drawer and stare at it until you have your own full-size VW bus. ((The secretis still a thing, right?)
Look, it’s your toy and you can do whatever you want with it: play with it like you’re a free-spirited kid again, add it to your collection of VW bus items, or just appreciate its surprising complexity. Playmobil’s T1 Camping Bus may not fulfill your wish to have the original one day, but it will certainly help you temporarily fill a small part of that VW hole in your heart – and at a comparatively low cost. Just like the toy manufacturer Che Porsches.
