Some of the prices Geobra has won for Playmobil sets.
Below that the best Schooner they ever produced and one of the many large figures that were put up.

The had some more, great displays on Noah´s arc, the old zoo and ... the medieval knight sets of the eighties !!! The only one missing in that display was the small castle.

One of the best items...

it all starts with a letter from a child - asking for something he really wants from Playmobil.
It then gets picked up by the design team who make sketches. After that some models get made which results in something that we all know ...

The last cabinets were dedicated to the vikings and the Victorian sets.

Some great bits to conclude.

There was some sort of movie being shown. Made somewhere around the early eighties fearuring some space men. I´ve heard rumours of a movie showing Klickies coming from Omega but that it was lost.
Apparently. It hasn´t and some asking around revealed it is still with Geobra. I still want to try and lay my hands on it - but that will have to wait ´till after my vacation.

And does anyone recognise this machine?

Indeed - we do have plenty of white mice for the moment  ;)
