Hi Everyone, I am New to Playmofriends
« on: March 11, 2019, 21:56:15 »
I joined last year but did begin until today!  I know some of you from the old PCC community.  I'm from Canada.  Though, thanks to the internet we can communicate globally.
I first began buying Playmobil back in 1980 when I saw these cute figures in small blue boxes on clearance at our new then to Canada Toys R Us store.  Bought them for my future possible kids.  First child came in 1983 and eventually they and their sibling loved Playmobil and we and their grandparents purchased a few nice sets over several years.
Eventually both kids grew up moved out and left their playmobil and have shown no interest so in 2016 I cleaned out their Playmobil, Lego and Star Wars totes and fell in love with the klikydom.  So I promptly took over the old 1980's & 1990's and began my new acquisitions.
I have to say that it will be nice to reacquaint myself with some of you.  I certainly loved Tahra's web site and Tiermann's, both have provided great info.  As well as this site where I picked up some very useful info on the Kardstadt gnomes, dwarves, etc.

Welcome to the group

Have a great time collecting playmo, it’s one thing that many in here hoerd  with joy
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:

Welcome from Stroud, UK.
I must say, I wish I had bought some PM sets back in 1980 (or even earlier), but I wasn't interested back then... :-[
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)
