Just a bump, since the proper pictures are on the German site now. As anticipated, nothing very exciting (usual collection of furniture, in the usual collection of pinks and golds) - though the bag of gold has had a piping nozzle added and is now an icing bag!

Good eye!  I wonder if the bag is normal? Probably, right? It would be nice.

What's with the cooking obsession!?  ???

I assume it must be normal, since surely if they were going to make a new mould it would be a bit more 'to scale'

I suspect cooking/baking sets are popular with kids - when I was a kid my Playmobil town always had a cafe, and I had to make all the food from Fimo (and even as an adult I have a soft spot for all those cakes and stuff!!)

Yes, that makes sense Oliver. That's an interesting adaptation of an existing part!

Oh yes, and for those fond of the theme, the new Classic reissued set will be 9879 - Dream Castle, almost identical to 3019 - Dream Castle from TWENTY-TWO YEARS AGO. (Goodness, I'm old.) This is when full skirts first made an appearance!

When I discovered this I couldn't contain myself!  :love: I've ALWAYS wanted to add this (not pink!) beauty to my ever growing castle collection! I see you said almost identical, but it looked the exact same to me. Or did I miss something? ???

I just realized that the coloring while not compatible with its lookalike 5142, it does appear to be compatible with 4250; right down to the stickers.




I might get it just for that alone...that and the klickies....and the extra tower....and just because... :-[ I'm looking forward to seeing just how the two would fit. I need somewhere to place all that princess furniture I have already!

I'd never noticed the stickers before - and as I alluded to in another thread, I can't imagine the mess I would make of applying those  :lol: :lol:

I do have a long term intention to buy one of these palaces and spray paint it
