Our little friends and I

To tell the truth, I do not know how old I was when I started liking Playmobil, a love that lasts until today. I find them fascinating, detailed and magical.

The first time I saw them was, as I remember, at the home of a wealthy woman, my mother worked for. Her son had fortresses, cowboys, horses and Marshalls ... Not to sound like a tom-boy but they were so much fun that I preferred them over Barbie’s, easily.

Later, I found the same “world” at a friend’s house and I played with them whenever possible because I had none of "that" myself.

This was all before my eighth birthday, at this time my parents returned to their home country and we had little access to these wonderful toys, however I had an allowance that gave me the opportunity to save up and buy my own figures. This was the only way to start my own collection because my parents didn’t value this type of thing.

My allowance wasn’t that big, so the purchases were scarce. However, thanks to my big sister who had “bigger income” bought me a few Playmobil to see me smile and dream away.

My first sets were 3278, 3747, 3302, 3397, 3363, 3594, and only much later, as a Christmas gift from my parents, 3750, the first Playmobil set that my parents gave me.

My parents never quite understood why I wanted to play with boyish toys so I store them away and played with them every opportunity that I had without them knowing.

When I “stopped playing", I kept stored at my parent’s home to later give them to my children as a “relic” from their mother’s childhood because they were the most fantastic toys in the world and a great memory.

Unfortunately the first grandchildren were not my own kids so my parents let my nieces play with my collection and they ended up taking apart multiple figures, losing numerous parts and “customizing” in the worst possible way some of my “best friends”. When I heard, I tried immediately to rescue my precious figures in order to be able to give them to my kids.

Today my oldest is four years old and I’ve introduced him to “my” little friends and they’ve quickly become “his” friends as well. His favorite “world” is Country, without a doubt. He loves all the machinery, tractors, animals, etc. I still love Playmobil to this day and adore picking out his sets for him, for now at least, and showing him all the amazing little figures. Can’t wait until my two year old girl joins in on the fun…

Por favor, Natal, venha depressa, porque a minha filha não vai parar de perguntar sobre abóboras
