As a child born in the 70's (1972) i have the beginning of Playmobil (1974) experienced but was still too young for the first sets. I received when I was 4 years old(1976). Since then I got on every occasion, such as birthday, christmas small sets with Playmobil. But like everyone else, we are older and push our interests with the result at the age of 16, i sold almost all Playmobil have one set after. Was a special edition of "prince" cakes. (Red knight).
Of course I now regret it. When my first son was 4 years old he got his first set of Playmobil, and my 2nd son and daughter. But my own collection started with the purchase of fishing boat 3551 "Suzanne". Meanwhile, the collection has grown only. The collection currently consists of several "Suzanne" and trains (All trains on batteries and start on iron rails), and constructions.
But the Rosa theme, western and old houses in "steck" are already part of my collection.
And recently I also collect Limited Edition sets and I think what's nice to come back completely the old sets from the early 70s.
