Could your policeman or postman have had free wrists? I could only find  3338, 3564 and 3309 single figure sets showing blonde hair on the box picture and all three have free wrists.

Policeman and postman did not have fixed wrists.

Three klickies! How many have you got now?

Have no idea.  ;D

I've grown up with many of these clickies since my brother and sister are 10 and 14 years older than me. It took a while before the free wrist clickies outnumbered them.

It's a curious thing that they did produce a second hairstyle for men when black clickies where released, but not one for women. Men got beards too.
The female clickies remained quite bland untill they received their new shape and where no longer limited to flip up skirts.

I feel like especially the classic knights still look pretty good to this day. Weird that they did not reissue the classic knight sword for that anniversary version, I quite like the model myself. I mean they did give him the classic helmet and fixed wrists. Might also have been nicer if the new knight was a modernised version of the same figure.
With the new dome helmet, heather shield, red pants, red sleeves with some nice boots and moveable wrists. And either a printed chestplate or removeable chest armor.

Great list.

Playpeople had some different colours like the nurse having blue arms and black legs but are they counted as klickys or is that reserved for actual playmobil?

I didn't include Playpeople, Schaper, etc. It's a good point though, when is a [non-]Playmobil set, figure or part accepted into a list? For me, I would like to know whether the parts were manufactured by Geobra (or perhaps whether Geobra supplied the molds) and the "allied companies" (Marx toys, etc.) merely assembled, packaged and marketed them, or whether the whole manufacturing process was handed over by Geobra. No-one has yet been able to answer this question, though I suspect the former is true, at least for Playpeople.

BTW, I showed all 'unique' Playpeople klickies back here, but I did miss one; male, black hair, white torso, white arms, green legs, fixed wrists.
