Welcome to Wholesale Forum
To become an official distributor / dealer for Playmobil, you should contact Playmobil directly and ask them about their dealer requirements. Below are the contact details for Playmobil US:
PLAYMOBIL USA INC
26 Commerce Drive
Cranbury, NJ 08512
Phone 001 609 395 5566
Phone 800 351 8697
Fax 001 609 395 3015
Playmobil Inc USA is also the US subsidiary and official distributor of Playmobil products. Playmobil is owned by Germany's Geobra Brandstätter GmbH & Co KG.
Playmobil might require you to have, amongst other things, a physical presence (storefront) to become one of their official dealers, or at least be able to demonstrate that you have a large existing customer base. They have these requirements because they need to make sure you fit their brand objectives. You will need to convince them that you will be able to buy and sell large quantities of their products, and present them in the appropriate setting without ever undervaluing the brand.
If you want to start selling Playmobil and build up some trading experience, you should consider sourcing surplus and overstock lots from wholesale liquidators. You can source genuine stock from these suppliers at discounted prices. Many sellers start out by selling surplus stock lots.
