Major score!  While we were visiting my parents on Christmas this past week, my mom offered to let me take home most of her Playmobil items that she purchased in the late 90's and early 00's.  She sold most of her valuable stuff on eBay a few years ago, but kept a tub of items that her grandkids liked to play with.  Her grandsons are all old enough that they never play with it when visiting her anymore, so she decided to let me have what's left of her collection.  (Except for she wanted to keep her Victorian Dollhouse items for my youngest daughter (6 yrs) to play with.)  It's fun, because I don't have too many "modern" style pieces (like race cars and whatnot).

I had a lot of fun sorting it all out this evening.  She took very good care of them as there are very few broken/missing pieces!  My mom is the best!!!

So, here's the tub.

Some, well most to me, really great items in there. If that were her leftovers from sales on auction I wonder what could have been in there before?

You really did score some great stuff from your mum.

I do see what looks like two non-playmo items. The red jack and the red silver thing below the blue spruce.

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:

Very nice Christmas treat can guarantee my Mum'd never surprise me like that, some great racing stuff in there liking the look of that orange motrbike and the go kart plus of course thta lovely looking rally car being a life long Formula 1 fan I had the Ferrari style F1 car as a kid along with the Knight in the small box and possibly the Fairy it was a great set I used to love taking the car apart and putting it back togheter again and pretending to do a pit stop it was all well until my R.E. teacher conviscated my driver never did have the courage to ask for him back  :-[ wonder where he is today. Anyway the Pirate set also looks great love the look of the boat no doubt the shipwrecked bit looks good underwater and the  figures look good as well
