Probably not too much, if you look at a typical toy store or sales area here in the US there is a really distinct demarcation between boys and girls toys, with anything aimed at girls being heavy on the pink. I don't know quite why toys seem to be becoming more sexist. Disney influence?

Yes, it seems like an odd trend, in this day and age. ???

I have purchased the hotel, kids disco, housekeeping set and bell boy but don't plan to assemble it until I have the penthouse, extra floor and the rest of the sets.

I was wondering if it would be possible to use the lighting set designed for the grande mansion in the hotel.

I have always wanted to light my Playmobil buildings but the price of the lighting sets has put me off, especially the one for the suburban house. I really must get the two lighting sets for my suburban house, plus an extra add on set as I have the fully extended house, but it would cost over £100 for all the sets :omg

I will have to bite the bullet and get them before they're discontinued as I always regretted not getting the lighting set for the previous suburban house.

I was wondering if anybody knows if it is possible to add two of these hotels together? I have seen in the pcc that someone took the shopping center and made one elongated one and it looks way better in my opinion. I would like to make this hotel wider so it does not end up being a 6 story tooth pick of a building. Something with a bigger footprint would look better 4 stories high.

If the elevator was removed could 2 hotels be fitted together ?
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

It would be difficult, because the shape of the base plates limits your options.
There's a gap in the base plate, for the elevator. If you take out the elevator, you could put another hotel there, but then it would be set back, not aligning with the front of the first hotel.

You'd also have a problem with the balconies. They stick out. I think all you would be able to manage is what would look like two hotels put next to each other.
But hey, prove me wrong ;D I'd love to see a huge hotel like that.
