Review:Compact set 4146 Apple Harvest
« on: February 14, 2010, 20:34:22 »
Last year Geobra started with a new series of sets called compact sets. These seem to be a cheaper/smaller variant then the super sets of old. Although I have only purchased one  at the moment. I think  these sets are the bee knees of current playmobil. The construction sit and the seaside set. All very lovely!


As you can see there is a lot of stuff included in this little set!


New parts seem to be: the baseplate and the new branches where you can attach apples or birds!


The only thing that really disappoints me is the colour of the baseplate that is really a shame :(

This baseplate is really handy for making a garden in front of a house.
Enjoy:

Thank you highlandcattle for the review, I don't recall seeing these sets around and now I have to look, I love all the details included.  :wave:  Do you have any set numbers?

I haven't seen this set before and it looks quite a nice set :)
I think it could have been improved as well by using the older design sack truck, as I think the one used looks to modern for the set :-\
I love the pickable apples though :love:

Excellent set review, highlandcattle! I have to agree with you regarding the base plate color which is very disappointing!
  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!

Excellent review, HC, although I quite like the green of the baseplate.  It's an apple green and so quite appropriate and I feel a nice change from the darker green used in the past.

I like the detail of the hole in the wall, just ideal for the small goat to stick it's head through.

I have the construction compact set and agree that they offer good value for money and a good starting point to get youngsters interested in Playmobil.
