Are the parts lists posted before the PDFs are available? Do Geobra remove the parts lists once they have posted PDFs? I bet it's not that simple!

Sometimes they are, yes - or at least would show up when "showSpareParts=true" was added to the URL. (That only works for some sets now.) I think the part lists aren't showable when the set itself is not available yet. On my end, I replace the parts-list icon, or link on the set-page, with the PDF one when the PDF turns up. The difference between "showable" and "not showable" is in the HTML itself. But even when not showable, the parts are still there in the HTML, so I can still harvest them for the inventory page. (Whew.)

Thank you, Heather! Does your 2291 total include 3252, 5379 and 5671? These numbers each link to no plans (5671 doesn't even exist!) when entered at the Playmobil websites.

It does include those - it's the number that shows up when you open the search form and hit "space". It's to make it easy to quickly check if new ones have been added.

and by the way... 5671 - Take Along Horse Stable ;)

Oh, that spacebar trick, yes I had forgotten that :-[

Thanks for the 5671 correction, Heather.
There are still three broken links (which count towards the 2291 total): 3252, 5379 and 5671. Each gives the result '1building instruction(s) found' but no pdf.

Could anyone tell us if 5379 - Gebńudereiniger actually has instructions or not?
