Someone at Amclicks discovered that the webpages for the products on the official Playmobil are already reserved! Which could indicate that the sets might go on sale before the end of the year.

I did the research myself and these are the results for the German website (links can't be opened yet, though):
https://www.playmobil.de/nostalgisches-grosses-puppenhaus/70890.html => Nostalgic big dollhouse
https://www.playmobil.de/nostalgisches-kleines-puppenhaus/70891.html => Nostalgic small dollhouse
https://www.playmobil.de/children%27s-room/70892.html => Children's room
https://www.playmobil.de/babyzimmer/70893.html => Baby room
https://www.playmobil.de/wohnzimmer/70894.html => Living room
https://www.playmobil.de/badezimmer/70895.html => Bathroom
https://www.playmobil.de/gartenterrasse/70896.html => Garden and terrace
https://www.playmobil.de/kaminzimmer/70897.html => Fireplace room
https://www.playmobil.de/kueche/70970.html => Kitchen
https://www.playmobil.de/schlafzimmer/70971.html => Bedroom

Would be nice to order the sets before Christmas!
I discovered that this morning too! The circus sets are reserved already too :)

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.

So far all revivals have been with a good quality of plastic, some people complain about the new plastic materials, but to be honest, I hardly notice the difference. At least with the Colorado Station, the Western Farm, the Western School, ... All were just perfect.

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

That's why I said only the links are reserved, nothing on the pages yet. Nevertheless, when the links and pictures are online (which is the case), it indicates the sets will go on sale soon.

There's a topic about the new circus, here ;)

I just saw the circus page and I'm absolutely shocked. I just can't get over this...the TWO big themes that I thought would never see the light of day again, and here there are returning at the same dang time. Now I can get my patio set again and the smaller house without paying insane prices on eBay!  :love:

Also it's a relief about the materials. Looking back on the rereleased dream palace, mine at least seems to be standard quality.

Do you know the age of that advert you posted, Macruran?

I'm afraid I don't, I just stumbled across it while googling wildly for PM Victorian images  :-[

Funny that it says "the good old days", for them it was referring to Victorian times, but for us it refers to Victorian theme times!  ;D

After seeing that scan of the catalog page with prices, it's interesting to note that the piano player was reissued in 2017 for a full dollar less than they charged back in the 1990s.  (It also lacked the rug, but hey, I'll live and hadn't really missed having it.)

But the original piano played Für Elise. The new one is mute.

I'm betting the finials on the house will be the soft kind used on the FAO mini house, rather the original harder plastic.
