A little while back, Playmobil released a series of cool Ghostbusters sets, all inspired by the 1984 movie. The sets included all four ‘busters, along with Slimer and The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and even though they were aimed at a young demographic, they were highly collectable.

Well, Playmobil know when they’re onto a good thing and the interest in the first collection of GB toys has led to another set – only this time with enhanced features! The toys – Ghostbusters II Playmobil Playmogram 3D – utilise smartphone technology to make ghosts appear!


Here’s a quick YouTube video to give you an idea of what the toys can do…

The video is accompanied by a short description, which explains just how this all works. The description reads:

“To start the virtual fun, just download the free PLAYMOGRAM 3D app, select a ghost or animal, and place the hologram pyramid on the marker on the display. Just like magic, the characters are suddenly hovering in mid-air. With the touch of your finger, you can catch the ghosts in the trap and release them again.”

Now, how cool is that?

There are four sets available – Spengler, Venkman, Stantz and Zeddemore – all priced at €7.99. All are available from the Playmobil website.
