Woah there! I meant no offense!   :o

I WAS joking about the insult ;)

It's just... it became soooo widespread, you know? It's... ridiculous. And it kinda feeds on itself. Ok, and it's a pet peeve  :-[


Thanks for that helpful image, I do try to operate under that as I'm designing, and Playmobil SHOULD staple it somewhere!

I loved that image since the first time I saw it - it is PERFECT  :P

Looking forward to the rest of your "drawerings" - brilliant!  And a plus for being steck. Steck rules. There is never enough steck. 7400! 7400! 7400! 7400! 7400!  (sorry, got a bit carried away ;) )

All is forgiven!  I'd probably do something similar :lol:.

I too hate the pink/blue thing so, SO much, I can barely stand going to a girl toy's section as my eyes suddenly feel like they're doused in Pepto-Bismol! And the boys are all the same shade of tired blue and shades of grey and black. I prefer the kind of toys that have plenty of colors for all!

And all hail glorious Steck! Although my generation grew up with the old red and yellow bits, Steck was more merciful to my hands. Shame I don't encounter it much personally.

If you have any ideas to share for the theme, I'm up for bringing them to life! Cheers!  :**:

Phew! I made my first initial concept for an 18th century castle.

It's a gorgeous design, and the addition of vegetation on the outside gives it a lot of swashbuckling play value, I think! Your royals look brilliant too, wish we could see them in plastic sometime.

For anyone who has doubts, here is a very handy "infographic thing": How To Tell If A Toy Is For Boys Or Girls In One Easy Step (huffpost)
(someone should send this to playmobil...)

That's hysterical, I'm saving it.  :lol:

I'm ashamed to say I wasn't aware of the existence of this set up to this very moment. It has so much potential I'm surprised it was never remade (or was it?).

It is unfortunately very necessary..

Well, we asked and asked and asked for a reedition... but nothing :(   It's probably one of the most useful sets EVER.  I could use a dozen or more. Me and everyone else.
