I do not keep my plamo's orginal boxes.In fact i usually throw them to recycling before i return home from store.I usually keep my plamo in boxes which is very painfull because it is hard to find what you need without to make a mesh. My favorite thing with playmo is to customise them with original parts usually.Love to buy to buy null figures from ebay and creating custom knights,soldiers and pirates.
My best time is to hold a klicky in hand  and all these boxes with parts in front of me ,trying to find what can do with this klicky. 8} 8} 8} ;D :yippee:

Here is a picture:

What you have left over when the "useful" bits are out is what is usually referred to as sprue!

OOh thanx Gis, now I get it. That's crazy but I keep sprues too! Never knew what for.....but I keep them.  :-[  :lol: :lol:

. . . Damo. why do you keep pieces of sprue?   ???  Have I missed something that Indianna said about it?  :-[ . . .

I couldn't remember saying anything of particular interest about sprues, but then I found this:
. . . I usually save all the bits and pieces (even the sprues in case a little piece of a particular color plastic might be needed later  8} ) . . . 

I must confess that I don't recall actually using any sprue bits.  :-[  Just obsessive I guess!  :help:

. . . That is funny, its a toy and no one voted for using it as such  :lol: . . .
I did!   :high5:

Too many choices but I narrowed it down to dioramas, but it would be a close tie with playing with the stuff (I thought that too undignified a choice for a 41 year ol...whahahahaha).

I keep all the boxes. I have always done this with toys as I am a mad ebayer and often think about possibly selling stuff once it is no longer in use.

I keep most of mine but can't alway find or get to them when I need them. 
Last Christmas I sold all our Harry Potter Lego sets but could only find a few of the boxes.    :-[
Guess what I found when we sorted the shed this summer...  :lol:

I voted for making dioramas, because that is what I intend to do, along with playing.  I've spent almost all my Playmobil time so far, however, customizing and organizing my Playmobil, so perhaps I should have voted for that option? ???

I have so little PM it's a hard one to answer. I went with display but think I should have put play or diorama!
