I've been enjoying a spot of Mail Order shopping. You know how it is. You get an idea in your head that there's a little something you simply must search for. You go to Ebay. You search. You find. You watch. You get way too over excited. You bid. You wait and watch some more. Bid again. Wait and watch. Mounting excitement. More waiting and watching. And then YES yesssssssssss!!! You win the bid!!!! Punch the air! Run to friends house and tell her you won the bid! It's too exciting for words!!!!!
Bet you cannot WAIT to see what I bought, what got me so over excited. Shall I tell you? The post title perhaps gives it away. Yes my lovelies, I bought Children.
Do you wish to see my new Mail Order Children?
Here they are then.................
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww five girls, aren't they adorable??
They are of cousre Playmobil, and I have a slight obsession going on over all things Playmobil. Specifically the Female variety of Playmobil actually, oh and animals too. I'm not too fussed over the Manly Playmobil, no, it's the sweet little pretty little feminine toys that really melt my heart.
I just lovelovelovelovelovelovelovelovelovelovelove these girls!!
I bought them from a cute ebay seller called "Littlebricks", they sell little bits of lego and Playmobil in case you ever have need of such things.
Aren't they just delightful?
Yes. Well. It didn't end there. I carried on searching, couldn't help myself. Kept looking. Kept finding. The Little People became involved in my searching activities and they got caught up in my Playmobil obsession. I got egged on from the sidelines, I had to be very strong and very selective cos we could have spent rather a lot of money on all manner of Playmobil items. I had to turn down the Veterinary Surgery. Ditto the Farm Set. But I simply could not let go of The Playmobil Lady And Little Girl With Bike. I went through days of watching/waiting/bidding anxiety. Placed my winning bid with a mere twenty five seconds to spare. And this is what became mine for a mere £3.21..............
Yippeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!! The cutest little collection of coloured plastic that you ever did see became mine! The basket of veggies!!! the sweet bunch of flowers! The market bag contaning a bottle and a fish!! And a scruffy little Playmobil dog! Too much. I just love them too much. I fear I am very abnormal. I am a child trapped inside a grown up body.
So, I now own my very own Playmobil, and much as I had to instruct the LP about the Mummy Marbles, I had to lay down the same law about the Mummy Plastic People. Only it did NOT sink in. The Playmobil lasted on my mantel for less than a day, then mysteriously went walk about. Little Lady of course................
............she whisked the girls/lady/dog up to her bedroom and introduced them to the world of caravanning. And I didn't have the heart to whisk them back again because it all looked so good.
Here we can see inside the caravan, isn't it super? The food is mainly from her collection of Sylvanian Family toys (the bread courtesy of the Watermilll Bakery), and the little wooden table and chairs actually belonged to me, they were part of a dolls house set that I had more than 30 years ago.
Sweeet, sweet, sweet.
The teeny tiny cutlery in the basket there also miraculously survived from my childhood dolls house, which is quite incredible really. The food is a mixture of Playmobil and Sylvanian.
This caravan was top of Little Lady's wish list for Christmas 2009 and has been fabulous, providing endless hours of imaginative play.
Talking of caravans, we went to visit Connievan at the weekend to check that she had come through the winter with no mishaps. There is a small issue with the water heater and a broken door handle, but other than that she is fine and dandy. I took down all the curtains and brought them home ready for a bit of a revamp in the near future. I am incredibly excited about ordering fabric and trim and getting busy with some serious prettifying.
My world maybe childish and abnormal, but boy am I happy in it ♥
