Greetings from the UK!
« on: May 14, 2021, 11:35:27 »
Hi, my name is Steve and I and my five year old daughter are big fans of Playmobil. She has a broad collection, though most recently she has developed a serious love for the pirates theme! My collection is smaller and focuses on early modern history. Both are growing!

I'm not a 'modder' but I do like to supplement the sets. I hope that my experience in this area will be useful to other playmofriends.

We have started a blog, earlymodernplaymobil.wordpress.com, with the intention of posting weekly reviews and occasional articles. I would be really grateful for any constructive feedback and suggestions, both on content but also the use of of Wordpress and Twitter if anyone is very familiar with them!

Looking forward to 'meeting' you all!

Steve.

Welcome from Stroud? Where are you in the UK?

Thank you all for your welcome messages and especially thankyou to Flatcat and Macruran for your encouragement!

Tahra, I have enjoyed browsing your reviews on Playkingdoms. It's nice to 'meet' you in person!

Graham, I'm in Solihull (what we Shakespeare fans like to think of the Forest of Arden!)

Hi drbatesy  :wave: from a recent member in the U.S.!

My favorite aspect of Playmobil has always been the historical-themed nature of many of the sets, which one doesn't find much in other toys.

You have some really great images on your blog, very crisp and clean captures! I am definitely looking forward to seeing more!
We get up at twelve and start to work at one, take an hour for lunch, and then at two we're done.
