I think it may be a custom, the flame looks more Lego than PM.  If it is Playmobil, then I think it might be from an Advent set.

Oh I have that set, and I absolutely LOVE that fireplace. You're going to love it even more after I tell you this. When you push the button to start it, it starts slowly, with only the lowest lights on, very dim, then gradually builds and gets brighter like a real fire. Then after it burns for a while, it slowly dies down and flickers out. I thought it was really well done.

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.

Cool! It's too bad they didn't bring back the lighted Victorian fireplace for the FAO set.

Thanks for the info - must have one!

Here is a comparison of the two fireplaces.  The dark gray one (30 66 9420) also comes in white (30 89 4912.)  Sorry  the flames don't show up well on the gray one, but they are also warm and inviting.  :love:
