Title: Hello from the Netherlands
Post by: Ispirito on January 28, 2019, 19:50:38
Good evenening, fellow Playmofriends.

I remember when I became 7 years old, I got the Pirate Ship 3750 from my parents. From that day, I started collecting Playmobil until my 25th.

All these years I was collecting the western theme, especially north & south army, and knights theme.

At the age of 25 I became father for the first time, and I had to give up my Playmobil room. I had to store my whole collection in my parents house and I couldn`t look at it for almost 10 years.
In 2018 my family and I moved to a larger house, where I became my own Playmobil room. Now, I`m glad to open up all the banana boxes with lots of Playmobil. I`m completely surprised by all the boxes and sets I collected through the years.

These days, I`m cleaning up my collection, and making difficult choices, killing my darlings, to make place for the things I really want to have.

Sometimes I find time to customize some klicky`s, expecially Union and Confederate soldiers. I hope I can show you some of my soldiers and armies soon.

Welkom, Maarten! Leuk dat je er bijgekomen bent!

Iím looking forward to your Western collection! The ďpositiveĒ thing about the Western theme, is that not many new sets are being released these days. But itís nice to search for new klickies that are related to the theme!

Have fun here!

Welcome, Maarten!

Looking forward to hearing more about your collection, rediscovered after several years. Like you, I love rediscovering PM sets I had forgotten we have (mind you, sometimes it's only a few  weeks since I last looked at it. The joy of getting older! :-[)
