Hello from Southern California!
« on: October 28, 2017, 10:54:49 »
I'm Lori. I bought my first playmobil set in 1985, for my then 3 year old son. I also run a daycare and for years my older kids and alumni have enjoyed using it.

I recently acquired two big tubs of incomplete sets from a thrift store. I'm trying to sort and organize into as complete sets as I can, as well as catalog what's missing and try to get some replacements.

Welcome Lori, nice to have you join our group!

Now I am kind of curious what this first set that you bought for your son was.  :)

I'm from the netherlands and was born in 1985, I believe my first set might have been a ghost but I am not sure, being the youngest of four kids there already was a lot of playmobil before I was born.

Macruran's right, I'm sure we'll be able to help you figure out how to complete the sets in your tubs.

Lori,

Welcome from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. A great resource to use is http://playmodb.org/ to help piece together sets.

Welcome from Stroud, England!
Like you, it was buying Playmobil for my children which first got me interested.
