Man makes Cypriot wedding scene out of Playmobil (photos)


A man has created a traditional Cypriot wedding scene using the popular children’s action figure toys Playmobil.

“I have been playing with Playmobil since I was a small child, and we always had a fair few. 15 years ago, I began collecting and buying them for myself inside and outside of Cyprus,” Charalambos Pisia said after presenting his creation at the recent Hellas Playmobil Customisers exhibition in Athens.

The hobby then became an outlet which he shared with others, as he explained.

He became a member of various groups of Playmobil fans in Greece, before going to see an exhibition in person for the first time in 2019.

It was there where he first got to know other Playmobil fans and became an official member of the club.

“From there, I began participating with my own scenes, and this is the second time I have submitted a creation of my own,” he told the Cyprus Mail.

Speaking regarding his choice of a Cypriot wedding for his creation, he said “I wanted to present something about Cyprus, so I decided to create the wedding scene so I could highlight Cyprus’ customs and traditions.”

He said creating the scene took “months” of work.
