In 1876, a locksmith named Andreas Brandstatter created the beginning of Playmobil by founding a lock and metal fitting company in Furth, Germany. His son took over the company in 1908 and changed its name. The company moved to Zirndorf, Germany. In 1930, the company began making toys for toyshops using metal and going through another name change. In the beginning of 1950, Horst Brandstatter started the new era of focusing on plastic. He designed a machine that could perfect the technique and the first Playmobil item made was a closed racing car. It began developing accessories and figures. In 1974, they were introduced.
