Martin Luther becomes Playmobil's fastest ever selling product

34,000 Martin Luthers sold out in three days.

Playmobil has revealed that its Martin Luther figure is the fastest-selling product to date.

34,000 Martin Luthers sold out in around three days and new orders won’t be sent out until April.

Martin Luther challenged the Catholic Church and helped start the Protestant Reformation back in 1517.

BBC reports that Nuremberg has started its preparations to mark 500 years since the Reformation in 2017, and  the Martin Luther figure is being sold as part of the celebrations, hence its boom in popularity.
