What specific items/pieces would you like to see?
« on: May 23, 2021, 10:04:03 »
Hello, everyone!  :wave:

I apologize if this has been discussed before, but I am wondering what specific items or pieces you would like to see from Playmobil?

By "specific items or pieces," I mean things like:

  • specific pieces of furniture or household objects
  • building pieces or architectural elements
  • specific animals or types of plants
  • figure accessories
  • items of clothing.

To start, my current wish list would include:

  • An antique sewing machine
  • A phonograph
  • A grand piano in black or "wood" (not lounge-singer white!)
  • A printing press (similar to this custom I came across)
We get up at twelve and start to work at one, take an hour for lunch, and then at two we're done.

I would like to see a baldrick designed to fit the female klickies.

Good thread!

A traditional plough would be at the top of my wish list. Like the one produced by PlayBig for their Viking theme, but then with the option of yoking some oxen.

I could have sworn there was a female pirate in one of the '90s sets that came with a baldrick, but I'm not sure if this was specifically designed for female klickies.

I'm honestly quite shocked that Playmobil hasn't included a plow in one of the sets, whether from the Knights, or Western, or Farm themes!  :o What an oversight!

Pretzel

Lego has had it for years, and Playmobil is a Bavarian company with years of beerhall and traditional dress figures but no pretzels.

Pretzels :) :)

I would love to see more Australian animals. Only kangaroos, koalas and crocodiles (/alligators) so far.
I would also love to have tree leaves in fall colours.

Yes, the tree leaves using the mixed yellow and orange plastics like some of the crabs.

A most shocking omission indeed! The beer garden pretzels are one of my fondest memories of Bavaria; I think they must have made up about 90% of my diet during the stay. It's honestly surprising they've never created a pretzel, which seems like a simple mold to create that could be included in a variety of different sets. They've had every opportunity to create them too! I can't believe they have the pretzel vendor (5506), an Oktoberfest Maid (Fi?ures Series 11), and multiple bakers, all with no pretzels. It seems intentionally perverse.

I'm always a fan of more animals! It would be really interesting to see them make "exotic" animals like echidna, platypus, or quokka.

I don't know how I missed this suggestion when I made my last reply.

Yes, autumn foliage would be an easy add, I should think, and it would work into the Playmobil world very well. I would love to see some autumn-themed sets, like apple picking and cider making!

Yes, cider making  :love:
Or an autumn/harvest festival with pumpkins and a carriage ride.
An oktoberfest set (for the adults). With a band making schlager music.
And clickies with rubber boots, rain coats and/or an umbrella

They do have an autumn inspired set, 9863. But I wasn’t really impressed.
(I made a suggestion to customer service NL a year ago to do something season related and 9 months later these sets appeared. Do they really listen to the suggestions or was it a weird coincidence??)
