Greetings from Iowa City
« on: September 15, 2016, 18:00:05 »
Hello all. My name is Maura.

Playmobil Background: I was born into a "Playmobil Family" of older siblings who collected. As a little girl I played with my Brother's Castles, Native Americans and Cowboys and my Sister's zoos and Victorian doll house. When I was 8, "Santa Clause" brought me my very first Playmobil, 3019 Fairy Tale Royal Castle. I spent hours playing with this set and saved up my money to buy a second Fairy Tale Royal Castle a few years later so I could build my first custom castle. My brothers had done this with their Medeival castles and I was set on doing the same. I started my lifestyle as an adult collector almost a year ago. I have spent all of my expendible cash and time on playmobil and eBay ever since. I am rejoiced to join a community of people who love Playmobil as much as I do, if not more.

Play on!

Hi Maura! Welcome to the forum  :wave:  I live in Antwerp in Belgium.

I wonder what your custom fairy tale castle looked like :) Sounds like a wonderful project!
Do share some photos of your collection if you find the time.

Hope you have great fun over here  8-)
