3235 - City Life- Bundespost's bus
« on: September 10, 2010, 09:24:27 »
I found this set in nearly complete stand. I completed the missing elements (scarf, french cap, extinguisher) with the help of the collector's book and pictures on the web.













List of parts :


    Bundespost's bus x 1
    Yellow light 30 02 1240 x 2
    Blue purcell x 6
    Sticker for purcell x 6 (6 different ones)
    Blue letter x 8
    Sticker for letter x 8 (8 different ones)
    Green klicky with black hair x 1
    Woman klicky red breast, white arms and legs, black hair 30 01 2060 x 1
    Blue klicky with blond hair 30 00 2040 x 1
    Brown suitcase 30 02 2740 x 1
    Green suitcase 30 02 2720 x 1
    Blue suitcase 30 02 2730 x 1
    Stickers for suitcase x 3 (3 different ones)
    Black handbag 30 02 3500 x 1
    Old fire-extinguisher x 1
    Red umbrella x 1
    Black pole for umbrella 30 02 2840 x 1
    Yellow wicker basket 30 61 9320 x 1
    Yellow scarf 30 02 2800 x 1
    Red collar 30 07 3580 x 1
    Blue cap x 1
    Off-white V-collar x 1
    "Colonial" hat with soft rim x 1
    Yellow french cap x 1
    Roadsign 30 60 0900 x 1
    Sticker 30 80 0520 for roadsign 30 60 0900

I really appreciate those vans, which are really simple and cheap to produce (move one clip and the set-up at the rear of the van gets off, then replace it by any other existing... TV van, Lufthansa bus, etc.)

I really enjoyed to discover the old purcells and letters and the funny addresses on them.


Sent the content list to PlaymoDB more than 6 months ago and never received an answer nor saw the inventory updated :/

That's a great set you've got and still with the original letters.  Thanks for the review.

playmoDB is run as a hobby by Heather and so she has to fit it in around the other things in her life such as running a home.  I'm sure she's grateful for the information and will use it.

A great set to remind us how far Playmobil has progressed :lens:! Thank you for showing us the details of this excellent vintage set :thanks:!
  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!

I never really took notice of this set (just thought it was a normal van) but WOW that is a cool van inside!

Thanks for these pics, Sweetking :thanks:

It is now on my want list (although I know I am never going to find one) :(

BTW, does anyone know what the large box is at the front of the roof on these style vans?

It almost looks like an air con box, but it wouldn't be :-\

Damo :)
