Wow, I knew the figures looked nice in the catalog but your photography makes them look even more interesting! I didn't think Playmobil would ever reuse the fairy's crown(3836) but it looks nicer in white on this bride.

I was just looking at the photos and daydreaming... But then I noticed it.

The little princess, should she not have a sort of... small... kind of crown or tiara? It can be seen on this photo:



But on your pictures I can see no tiara, Richard. Not even on the box art.  ???

Maybe the Romans wanted to borrow it, in return of the bridles?  ;D

Hello, Kristian ...

You certainly have a keen eye ... ;)

I also like your story about the princess trading her tiara for horses bridles ... :)

This set did come with a tiara for the princess. However, I thought that it did not enhance her appearance at all. So, I chose not to use it. Other collectors may like it. But, I thought that it detracted from the princess's appearance.

Thanks, Kristian ... I'm sorry that I forgot to explain why I chose not to use the use the tiara.

All the best,
Richard

Hello Richard!  :)

You don't have to say sorry for anything, you have done nothing wrong  ;D

For a time I thought the tiara was such a thing that would never sit tight, and allways fall off. Just like most of the shoulderpieces and some other hats. Every now and then I get bored of them and cease to use them. I thought this had happend to you too  ;D

Hello, Kristian ...

Thank you. But, the next time that I do a review, I will be sure to write about everything!

I will also be very careful to not forget to also write about the things that I don't like ... ;)

Thanks again for pointing out the "missing" tiara. Maybe if we all write about the things that we don't like, along with the things that we do like, Playmobil might make some changes in their future sets ...  :yup:

All the best,
Richard
