Playmobil recently expanded its line of NHL play sets to include New York Islanders toys.
The initial line of 16 Playmobil NHL toys was introduced last year, as well as an NHL Arena, Zamboni ice resurfacer, NHL referees, the Stanley Cup trophy and more. This year, the toy company plans to add 12 more NHL teams, also including the New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Vancouver Canucks, Washington Capitals and more, with both player and goalie figures hitting the stores this spring.
“Due to popular demand from consumers and retailers alike, we are thrilled to expand our offerings of NHL toys,” said Mark Cohen, vice president of sales and marketing for Playmobil USA in a news release. “Young fans were clamoring to play with their favorite NHL teams and now with the introduction of additional franchises and iconic NHL moments, they can continue to express their fandom and create their own authentic NHL-inspired experience.”
Additionally, Playmobil will be featuring NHL rivalry packs, Stanley Cup Presentation, Score Clock with Referees and an NHL holiday Advent calendar this fall.
