Affectionately called the “duck” in Germany and “Tin Snail” in English, the Citroën 2CV is THE iconic French car. Finally, this cult-classic is available as a new PLAYMOBIL model, further expanding the range of classic cars in the collection.
The legendary Citroen 2CV was first introduced in Paris in 1948. At first the subject of jokes, the Citroen 2CV developed into one of France’s most well-known car models. It may be small, but oh boy is it special! Offering space for four passengers, the PLAYMOBIL model is full of charming details: like the faithfully recreated interior, openable rear hatch door, characteristic headlights, and functioning sunroof. The headlights are interchangeable: choose between transparent and yellow colouring.
The sheet of stickers presented in this set includes four number plate options from different countries, as well as a selection of other stickers for personalising the model. Everything you need for authentically recreating rural French life from the mid 20th century! The Citroen 2CV from PLAYMOBIL represents the charm and ingenuity of French automobile design. Perfect for playing, collecting or displaying, this unique miniature is sure to delight both children and adults.
But why do some people call it a “duck”? Well, back in 1948, a Dutch journalist described the model as an “ugly duckling” at first sight and the term just stuck. The model was so popular that it was chosen as part of an award list of Cars of the 20th Century in France in 2002.
Since its introduction in 1974, PLAYMOBIL has won the hearts and imaginations of children and parents in more than 100 countries. It is a strong family brand which crosses all ages, genders and generations. It equally attracts boys and girls.
Always think about two eyes and a smile representing the iconic PLAYMOBIL figure. You can put any adventure behind this expression, slip into many different roles and create attractive play themes. Kids can process everyday experiences, wishes, joys and fears in constantly changing stories right there on the carpet.
Imagination takes them to any place!
