Problem with the circus theme might be that its a one trick pony. You can't really use it for much else than circus performances.

It's beautifull, but it has a far more limited range of play possibilities compared to a house, castle or pirate ship for example.

My gues would be that the firemen theme is not a big seller either, again due to limited possibilities.

Historic themes probably depend on each batch.. Pirates are probably doing well in each batch, might be one of the most popular playmobil themes. I'd gues its outselling the medieval theme in recent years ever since medieval limits itself to just castles and soldiers.

With various ships, islands, rafts, hidden treasures, etc the pirate theme simply seems to have more possibilities these days.
My hopes arent too high for the newest cowboy batch though.. it lacks structures. Might have been good if they skipped the fort for once in favor of something else. Like a ranch, or train.

My toys r us has DOZENS of circus bigtops that have not sold, stacked up on shelves, overflowing into aisles besides the playmobil one. I take that as a bad sign. I don't know why, though. It's such a great set, and they had wonderful displays set up in the center aisles of this theme, with one set up in a showcase and all. I don't know why it didn't sell.

WOW! How much are those?

I'd have to check. When the old TRU was closing, they got down really cheap, like $30. :o

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.
