CRANBURY, N.J., Oct. 9, 2013 -- PLAYMOBIL®, a leading toy manufacturer of classic children's playsets and figures for more than 35 years, has launched a new "Battle of the PLAYMOBIL PopStars!" contest to introduce fans to the latest PLAYMOBIL theme and give them a chance to win PLAYMOBIL prizes. The contest, running on Facebook now through November 15, will ask fans to vote for their favorite PopStars! band, give the band a rockin' name and have a chance to win prizes including PLAYMOBIL PopStars! product and PLAYMOBIL shopping sprees.

"Our PopStars! playsets let fans take open-ended imaginative play to the next level with the combination of traditional play, tech and a rock 'n roll theme," said John Skrajewski, Vice President, Sales and Marketing. "With our new contest, fans can engage with PLAYMOBIL on another platform and even name the PopStars! bands."

The PopStars! theme includes a PopStars! Stage that features four figures and an MP3-connector, encouraging kids to select their favorite tunes and put on a live rockin' show that expresses their individual creativity. In addition, the line includes a PopStars! Band, PopStars! Tour Bus and PopStars! Keyboarder.
