Hello from the Netherlands
« on: May 21, 2021, 14:54:01 »
Hi everyone,

Iíve been visiting the forum as a guest for a while now, so Iím happy to join you all.

Iím a mom of 2. Unfortunately they are still too young to play with playmobil. My interest in playmobil was reignited when searching for toys for my children. I love good quality toys that will last a lifetime, so automatically I found my way back to playmobil. I still remember the yellow caravan and the cabin I used to play with when I was little.

I have a glass dome/bell jar in the living room where I regularly change whatís inside. It started with some playmobil sinterklaas figures and currently I have our (playmobil) family with our newest addition on display. I try to make it like a mini diorama.

I really love to watch the dioramas you make. My interests are currently everyday life and seasonal themes. But I enjoy everything you make.

I donít know how active Iím going to be on the forum as life is a little hectic right now. But it will be fun to be able to join in when I want to.

Looking forward hearing from you,
Elise

Welcome Elise!
You can post as often or rarely as you wish on here :wave:
