((( more ))) playmo stuff!
« on: January 20, 2015, 11:40:28 »
I saw these pieces and just had to get them and hubby kindly sprayed a piece of board up for me,







Mrs Bear is catching the supper,



and the playmo' people have a chemical toilet with toilet paper casually hung on a branch,



the skunks are looking to get up to mischief,



and there's my own little mischief maker glaring at me for monopolizing 'his' bed  :lol:



and finally the baby bear cubs waiting for mum to come home ...



I love this set up it's just so enjoyable to look at. I haven't quite finished it yet, I have a couple more platforms coming to add extra floors and extra trees when I see some cheap.

I wasn't struck on the rope thing with tray on the bottom, I don't know what the professional term is? so I took the tray off and made a pulley to pull up boxes from the main platform.

I also am getting frustrated with the trap door, every time I put my hand in there to move things around I knock the handle and my table falls down  :wall:
I am considering permanently fixing it and making a natural fibre floor covering

When I get my platforms and extra trees, I'll share close up pictures of the house but thanks for looking now and hope you enjoyed the pictures,
Mandy J

That looks great, and the painted board works really well.
I like how it almost looks like a Playmo Island for wildlife watching in the human world (that cat is sitting right in view!).

The trapdoor-thing, it happens here all the time too.
I have that treehouse but without the extra platform and ladders. That looks very cool too.

Oh, and: huge dollhouse in the background? I'm intrigued! It's not Playmosize, is it?

Very nice set-up! That composting toilet isn't a playmobil piece is it? Where did you find that? I really like that "bathroom." :lol: Very at one with nature. Reminds me of some that I have seen on Treehouse Masters. Great job!

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.

Thank you Beth, Leefert and Birdie  :)

The toilet is one of those Sylvanian Families ones Beth, it has a tented cover but it didn't fit with the wilderness retreat I am trying to create   :)

I remember when I was little, we had a caravan and a guy my dad knew let him keep it on his farm. This was in the sixties and it was just on the boundary of a seaside village called Sutton On Sea surrounded by the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside ... anyway, we had an outside loo with a wooden door and I can remember sitting in there with the door open 'at one' with nature  :)

It's funny you don't mind spiders so much when your little  :lol:

Birdie, that dollshouse is 1/12th scale. It's a Dolls House Emporium one and it's got to go, it's far too big for me now and I can't crawl around on the floor like I used to. I never got around to finishing it because of one thing and another but it's just in the way.

Yes, I would love to vacation in this tree house, hubby and I are both huge animal lovers so it would be awesome, not so much mosquito's and snakes though   8}

Great tree house. Those surrounding wildlife pieces work very well with your display. :)

Beautifull display, that board matches nicely.  :)

I'd be quite concerned about using a toilet on a raised platform out in the open though, especially with hungry bears nearby.

Thank you Pynedor and Rhalius   :)

If it were real life, I'd be a bit dubious myself Rhalius   :lol:
