Being musically-inclined, I have to say that I’m a sucker for toys that involve music. As I’ve noted in the past, my oldest daughter is already right there with me, always making “stages” and rocking out with her dolls and their accompanying instruments. Now, the folks at PLAYMOBIL are getting in on the action, launching a new line of PopStars! toys, which carry a “rock and roll theme.” They’re even trying to name their PopStars! bands, with a contest open right now. Since we don’t have any of these here at Rock Father HQ, I can’t comment on their quality, but I do have details on the full line to share below. There’s even a tour bus…

“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. With our new contest, fans can engage with PLAYMOBIL on another platform and even name the PopStars! bands.”John Skrajewski, Vice President, Sales and Marketing.
