I was rooting through some of my old boxes trying to declutter my life… when i found this ancient little frayed catalougue with a note from one of my cousins written on it. I can’t believe i have totally forgotten about Playmobil toys!
I was a fan of Playmobil for as far as i could remember as a child. We used to call it “Lego” for some reason and to be frank we still do. The standard collection was blue and was set in current times with ambulances and police cars and schools. I remember my mother promising to buy me the Ambulance when Kuwait was freed from Iraq in 1990. I am still waiting for her to buy it for me :p
I still remember the day the pink oldies collection of this booklet started selling in the UK. It was 1991 and i was in Woolworths Edgeware Road and i bought my first oldie collection (#5320 the living room) and went home to play with it. I still love the oldie collection. If you collect all rooms you can furnish the whole house which i had been intending to buy some day. I never got to. I still have my Playmobil toys but a lot of the pieces are missing thanks to my brother who loved chewing and breaking and losing toys. I wouldn’t mind buying the house and furnishing it again now 🙂
Did you love to play with Playmobil? Do you have a certain toy you dreamed of buying and never got around to!?
