Direct Service
« on: March 31, 2010, 23:25:45 »
Hi all,
I have been using direct service for a while and am very happy with it...
But I remember that the reason I started using it was to buy a few small parts that had recently been discontinued because I heard that you could buy items that had been discontinued within the last 2 years.
Is that true? ???

Yes and no.  You can usually get parts for items discontinued in the last 7 years, and sometimes much longer.

Sometimes I've been lucky with DS having older parts (discontinued 5+ years).  Call them up and see if they have the particular part(s) you're looking for.

You guys are lucky! Playmobil Hellas does not keep stock of, or sell, individual accessories. Once i tried contacting playmobil UK and they redirected me back to playmobil hellas.... >:(. Would it be possible to order from other DS, like germany or denmark? Does anybody know?

Contact Germany DS as they may supply.

Thanks for the replys! :wave:
I will keep trying. :)

If they say a discontinued item is not available then will it ever be?

Possibly.  I've had "discontinued" items go back into stock after six months or so.
