5875 Blister - Santa, angel, pipe organ
« on: November 24, 2010, 23:49:36 »




Picked this up at Learning Palace today, it isn't on Playmodb and I couldn't find a reference to it here either.

Nice Santa with new coat, carrying some sheet music (notes unfortunately smudged on one side of mine) and a yellow star staff, usual angel from Nativity set, and a red/white/gold pipe organ that plays 3 refrains in succession when the black button on the back is pressed - Jingle Bells, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas, total play time about 30 seconds.

The music on the sheet actually forms a real tune, unusual when sheet music is "faked". Two tunes, one each side, in the key of A, though I don't recognise the tunes, they're not the ones played by the organ.

There was also an 5874 Santa Blister, but I didn't get that one as it had an old-style Santa with clip on boots, and it has been mentioned on PlaymoFriends before by Ronastoo and others.

btw, I didn't pay $5.99 each for these, LP have a 15% discount on Playmobil until 31st December.

The reason that you couldn't find it, Martin, is because Playmobil changed the number for the US.

Thanks Richard! That's very curious, I wonder why they needed to do that? I presume the 4889 Organ also played music, but maybe they wanted to draw more attention to it.

Thanks for the review Martin. It's a cute little set, if we don't have one of these "coated" Santas yet it might be reason enough to buy one!

Thanks for the review, Martin.  Not something I'd buy, but a set with some interesting features.

Can you post some pics of the music enlarged and maybe Diane can come up with the tune?

Hello, Gordon ...

Will these "captures" work for Diane?
