Playmobil is best known as an imaginative play toy and few things inspire one’s imagination as much as the circus. Oliver Schaffer of Germany has brought together both the imaginative worlds of Playmobil and of the circus with his Circus Oliver exhibitions. Featuring more than 5,000 Playmobil figures, the exhibitions showcase different types of circuses ,many aspects of circus culture and display’s from the actual circuses themselves. The circus and Playmobil are quite a draw, so much in fact that more than half a million people have seen the 7 separate Circus Oliver exhibitions that have taken place in Europe over the last 10 years. Circus Oliver is currently exhibiting in Chemnitz, Germany until February 23rd at the Galerie Roter Turm. For more pictures of the exhibitions, check out Circus Oliver’s Facebook page.
