Zwarte Piet
« on: November 24, 2018, 07:38:08 »
Today in the Belgian newspapers: Playmobil is selling Zwarte Piet (Black Pete) sets again. Apparently some retailers had asked for them, so they've started producing them again.

You have to order them with a PC PC!

Hi ya - on Ebay - came from The Netherlands.

The one I purchased is shown on top, & I think that merchant is now sold out. The one listed below is $10 more expensive.  :(

They´re being re-released in Belgium.

I know, I meant where specifically did he get his, since, both of us being not-Belgian, I might thereby find out some clew as to securing mine own box.  :skull:
