They should make Playmobil bees. Imagine how tiny they'd be!

Because of overall cuteness. And just look at those honey pots!

Ah, the pots "covers" are indeed too cute...

But I don't like the green roof on the sylvanian hive... It does seem a LOT smaller than the playmo one, doesn't it?

I don't think the hive is smaller, it's just that the legs are shorter.

Sylvanian always has that extra level of detail, but not everything is in perfect scale. The pots will probably be on the big side.

apparently playmobil's u.k. associate marx toys did more than just change the name to playpeople.  :hmm:
that also made some not-playmobil complements for the yes-playmobil sets.  :o
this one is an ambulance made of safe steel (whatever that is) and there is talk about a castle.

Imitation of both Playmobil and Faller Mini Playtrain.

Found these-imho fantastic-"Airgamboys" Roman sets yesterday, had some Airgamboys as a kid, and always kept a soft spot in my heart for them.
These are sets from the early 90's-the time they changed the look of their boxes.These sets are unbelievably detailed!  :)
