I don't remember ever running across this before, but a friend was looking for Playmobil Jane Austen and found this YouTube channel. It is book synopsis of literature made with Playmobil. Some fun stuff there.

He's popped up a couple times in the In the News thread but it's easy to miss stuff there. Some neat videos, if not very elaborate (Cinemano has nothing to fear). They further illustrate that a major strength for Playmobil is cultural stuff - imagine a series of famous characters from literature.

... "Kabale und Liebe" (Schiller) and I must add that I just found out it's called "Intrigue and Love" in english, which sounds much more like an Austen novel  ;D
