I have learned that 5:00 hrs in not a whole lot of time in getting the complicated scenes set up.
Thank you for the information.

Maybe, some day, I can actually visit this playland or something very similar.
I can dream, can't I?

Where do you get the information from of such events?

This really looks interesting and animates to visit such an event too; unfortunately I'm living in the south of Germany (near Stuttgart), so do you know if there are any of these events too?

Regards

Jochen

It was announced at the German Playmo-Portal. There are several events in Germany, like Wolfsburg and Ritterhude; you can check out about it here:

Hello, Jean Luc ...

I have been trying to keep from looking at your wonderful fotos ...  8}

Today I looked!

And, I realized that I had indeed missed a great opportunity to really expand my Playmobil collection!

I think that all of us would love to be able attend an event like this. Unfortunately, most of us live too far away ...  :(

How were the prices , Jean Luc ... ???

Were they reasonable? Or, were they very expensive?

Thanks for sharing your visit to to the Playmo fair at Kranenburg with us.

All the best,
Richard

Well, that all depends on what you are used to; a lot of articles weren't price-tagged, so if you were interested you had to ask the seller in question. Of course the more sought after or desired a set was by general opinion, the more expensive it was. I do recall a set 3666 for €90 (still sealed). If you were new into the collecting business the prices of the MIB sets might have deterred you; on the other hand, loose items out of boxes/crates were quite reasonable (depending on the size of the object of course).
The pirate color set 3657 I bought was €25 (the seller made a special offer here) and the pony cart set 3583 was €15.

Hello, Jean Luc ...

I just bought set-3666 (Large Steck Castle) MIB here in the US for $100.00. So the prices are very comparable. That's good!

Do they have any of these fairs in the summer? When it's a little warmer? ... ;)

All the best and Happy Holidays,
Richard

Thank you for this information. (Should have some closer looks to the German board too.)
