Hi everybody!  :wave:

Delighted to join!

My name's Alice. I'm a Playmobil collector from Belfast, Northern Ireland. I'm sure many of you have had the same experience - Playmobil was my favourite toy as a child. I'm a child of the 80's/90's. My sister and I had a few well-loved sets - some of the Victorian rooms, the ambulance, the school bus.. and my absolute favourite - Franky's Cafe!! I never got rid of my childhood collection, and I've recently taken up expanding it with vigor!

My favourite genres of Playmobil are, in order of preference:

1. Victorian
2. Any Hospital/Cafe/Dollshouse
3. 80's/90's City Life (playground, boats etc)
4. 123
5. Vintage 70's Western
6. Pirates

I also love the special figures, and have a lot of random ones that I love, eg clowns, mermaids etc.

I'd be so thrilled to meet & get to know other Playmobil enthusiasts. There is so much to be enjoyed & shared. So many possibilities!

Cheers & much love, Alice

 :)

Welcome from Portugal!

We also have our sets from childhood - the oldest are over 41 years old! - and been adding to them with enthusiasm, to my poor wallet's dismay  ;D

Looking forward to pics from your collection!

Welcome from me, in Stroud, England!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

I've seen it, & would love it, but I don't have it. I just have 3392 the pizza man, and 9860 the food delivery van,and have ordered a bunch of food bits second hand eg hotdogs etc and ice-cream vendor. I love anything to do with food!!

Will try & do a little scene & send photos when I get all my little food sets together!

Thank you do much everyone for your warm welcome & enthusiasm about seeing my collection..

Excited to share, once I get a little more organised!

I was also a big fan of Franky's as a child! I'm a fan of the food stuff in general too, there is an adorable crepe cart out this year

(and welcome from across the water in south-west Scotland!)
