Title: St Aloysius College keychains
Post by: PlaymoCollector on April 15, 2020, 07:51:44
This appears to be old news, but I figured it might be worth sharing since I didn't find any discussions on the forum.

While browsing eBay, I have seen a couple of listings for these keychains popping up.

I have no information about them other than the fact they were made for the St Aloysius College (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Aloysius%27_College_(Malta)) in Birkirkara, Malta.

The backprint seems to indicate these were produced in 2008, but I had never seen them before.

Wow, never saw those before :)

They are very pretty!

(and probably expensive... )

Cute figures - slightly odd that they're released in the 101st year (late getting the order in?!) but there we go

It does raise the question of how big production runs have to be, though I suspect that will forever be veiled in mystery

Thanks for sharing the pictures - very nice!

Are you sure that they were really made for that college from Playmobil? They actually look like (very good!) selfmade customs...
