I'm even more intrigued by this url that cannot (yet?) be opened:

https://www.playmobil.de/mississippi-dampfer/70789.html

High on my Christmas list!

Oh wow, imagine if they really are dusting off prototypes?!

I once read a rumour that there was a prototype of a working town fountain that was made for the Victorian range

Let's nip this in the bud – it was a (silly) joke of mine, Oliver! I mean: bml87 may be right or wrong with his urls: there is no way of telling yet. But I am certainly wrong: mine is entirely fictitious, not based on any evidence. As far as I know, the Mississippi Steamboat will never enter production. Sorry for raising hopes.

At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Oh, but the links are correct, these come from the Playmobil site itself, they're just not filled with any data yet (maybe I wasn't very clear about that), but the link descriptions are reserved in their system.

On the other hand: all in for the Mississippi steamboat!

Go to any set on the Playmobil site, for example:

https://www.playmobil.de/adventskalender-badespass-meerjungfrauen/70777.html

=> Now change the article number "70777" in the search bar into one of the new set numbers e.g. "70890"
=> Like this: https://www.playmobil.de/adventskalender-badespass-meerjungfrauen/70890.html
=> Now hit "Enter"
=> The website reloads and changes the link in the search bar into: https://www.playmobil.de/nostalgisches-grosses-puppenhaus/70890.html

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: I CAN'T  BELIEVE IT ACTUALLY MADE A COMEBACK!!! I NEVER THOUGHT THEY'D ACTUALLY DO IT!!!! I mean I was fantasizing about it a week or so ago and lo and behold! Sheesh, this combined with my desire for flaming horses and clip-on shoes, I must be an inadvertent genie or prophet  or something. I should wish for more stuff.... >:D Any ideas?

I actually love the new wooden look to the parents bedroom. My only worry is the quality of the plastic for the mansion. It'd be a travesty to bring this beautiful relic back, only to completely botch it up with bad materials.  :'( I so wanna make a mega mansion.

Also, I don't the trick is gonna work for me. It keeps leading back to the "UUPS!" page.
