thank you so much for the review

hmm i think i still prefer the old school bus, which noy only was made in Europe but still looks like playmobil

the easter bunny sets were also manufactured in China but i never noticed any quality issue

such a long wait for a disappointment, bah ::)

Enjoy the elegance and fun of 1900 with The Victorians photo story! :gent: ;D :sherlock:

Do you still want one when I can get them, Luis?

It looks..... well, cheap. But the regular ambulance is so expensive. :-\ I guess it's good to have a cheap alternative.

The "real" ambulance is only 27.99 while 20% off at TRU, as it is for the rest of today. That's only $8 more, and very much worth it!!

Yikes, I thought that dastardly Fire Engine was just a one-time mistake by Playmobil but now at least three other vehicles with the same cheap look.

Dear Playmobil, please re-release the lovely old #3170 as a Classic Edition...now is definitely the time to cash in on this one before the School theme goes away!

Comparing the two ambulances, one can imagine the differences that would exist between a "real" school bus and the cheap one. It's really sad. Apples and oranges.

Oh that ambulance also looks bad  :(

I really do not like this sound feature. playmobil always had such a simple pleasure with only the working lights on the vehicles

Is the sound box located in the light assembly? I could use a red light on something and it seem to be the similar size as the other vehicles
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Yeah, I liked having only lights too, toys with sound are so annoying.
