Micro Playmobil Worlds

8 Micro Playmobil Worlds

Sadly discontinued, Playmobil Micro Worlds is one of my favourite sources of awesome looking, affordable doll house toys. The sets came in fold out boxes, with two full size Playmobil figures and accessories, plus a whole bunch of tiny goodness. Here's the Noah's Ark micro set with a Shelly (AKA Kelly, Barbie's toddler sister) doll:

The tiny figures are magnetic (as was their original box), but they stand up nicely unaided too. I'd wanted a miniature Noah's Ark for ages when I first stumbled across the Micro Worlds. I picked this set up for under £5 on eBay, whereas dollhouse arks tend to start at around the £20 mark.

Since then I've added another four worlds to my collection, and fully intend to find the rest. Here is a guide to the eight Micro Worlds, and other Playmobil sets which incorporate the micro pieces.


Micro Playmobil Fairy Tale Castle
#4330: Fairy Tale Castle
Full Contents. How cute is this mini version of the Princess Fantasy Castle? It even has the horse and carriage too. This set was released in 2006 then discontinued, but you can still get the micro bits as part of the Princess line. (More on that later.)


Micro Playmobil Pirate Ship
#4331: Pirate Ship
Full Contents. I love the little pirate ship, released in 2007, and it goes well with my vast collection of Playmobil pirate treasure - those doubloons are perfect miniature chocolate coins.


Micro Playmobil Noah's Ark
#4332: Noah's Ark
Full Contents. Released in 2006.


Micro Playmobil Knights' Castle
#4333: Knights' Castle
Full Contents. Released in 2006.


Micro Playmobil Farm
#4334: Farm
Full Contents. Released in 2008.


Micro Playmobil Modern House
#4335: Modern House
Full Contents. Released in 2008.


Micro Playmobil Airport
#4336: Airport
Full Contents. Released in 2008.


Micro Playmobil Harbour
#4337: Harbour
Full Contents. Released in 2008.




You can also get some of the miniatures as part of larger sets:

Playmobil Children's Room
#4287: Children's Room
Full Contents. Released in 2008.


Christmas Market
#4891: Christmas Market
Full Contents. Released in 2010, this set has a green version of the dragon from the Knights' Castle world, and the horse and carriage from the Fairy Tale Castle.


Christmas Room
#4892: Christmas Room
Full Contents. Released in 2010 and discontinued in 2014. It doesn't contain any pieces from the micro worlds, but does have a blue car like the one in the micro airport world, and a tiny nativity which roughly fits the micro scale. In 2014 it was replaced by #5946: Advent Calendar Christmas Room with Illuminated Tree. It still has the micro nativity scene and can be bought from the Playmobil website for £19.99.


New Playmobil Children's Room
#5306: Children's Room
Full Contents. Released in 2015, this set is currently available from the Playmobil website for £11.99. It uses the little dragon and one of the mounted knights from the knights castle micro world.


Playmobil Children's Room
#5333: Boy and Girl Room
Full Contents. A former - and far superior version - of #5306 including the micro world farm. It was released in 2010.


Playmobil City Life Toy Shop
#5488: City Life Toy Shop
Full Contents. It doesn't have any micro world parts - but it does have toy boxes which would be in scale. Miniature Playmobil boxes were also included with a few other sets, like 2004's #4150: Christmas Eve Advent Calendar.


Playmobil Royal Children's Room
#6303: Royal Children's Room
RRP £13.75 - find it on the Playmobil website HERE. It contains the main part of the micro Fairy Tale Castle.


Playmobil Royal Children's Room
#6852: Children's Room
Another current set, it has the micro horse and carriage in purple, and I spy a little knight on a horse up in the chest on the table.


Playmobil Royal Children's Room
#6854: Dining Palace
Check out that little dragon - part of the micro knights' palace - in the gift box. According to Klickypedia, this set is due out this year.



Which is your favourite micro world? :)

  5. I never had a Micro PlayMobil when I was little but I do remember my Polly Pocket set, where a pink van would open up and transform into a house for my little pink princess. It was a great toy! :)
