Playmobil set 4289 - Home Office
« on: November 12, 2011, 22:24:32 »
Got this set today and decided to post a review!

The front and back of the box.


The side of the box.


The catalogue and instructions.

The bags.

Complete!


This set is really great. It is very versatile, as it can be used as a home office or as an office in a highrise tower.
One of the downsides of this set is that the stickers require really fierce concentration and precision. In fact, I remarked that the stickers should have come on pre-printed.
Nine out of ten stars.

Hahaha! I am laughing because I had the same problem with the stickers....especially on the notebooks on the shelves. Tiny little buggers are hard to get on straight...had to do them several times with tweezers before getting them somewhat in the right place!

This is a cool set because as you said, it fits in many different rooms.
Thanks for the review, Pgal :wave:

Thank you for the review PlaymoMan! Another great set with endless possibilities!


To properly place vinyl decals, use a quarter coins worth of dish washing liquid in a saucer bowl of water, thoroughly mix together, then dip the decals in it, & position the decal on the desired surface, then smooth out with a linen handerchief! You can slide the decal around to get it perfectly positioned until the water dries from patting it with the CLEAN handerchief. ;D
  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!
