In the mean time we have opened our shop, so everybody can take a look and start purchasing from us.
Our items will be available on Ebay, but our webshop prices will be cheaper and have more stock.

Moving to a new webshop

new webshop

Posted in february 2019 Blog, Website

The last weeks we have been very busy behind the scenes. This is why the updates to our website here have been lacking and we are sorry for that.
Setting up this new webshop with all legal stuff, payment options etc. has taken much more time then anticipated.
When it is ready, our new webshop will provide a good shopping experience for children, parents, grandparents and collectors.

We are doing our best to setup the new webshop as fast as we can. Though better good and without any issues,
then fast with problems ;-)
See you soon in our new webshop @ PlayMotoToys.nl The planned opening will be at march 3rd 2019.

Update to PlayMoto.NL website

construction

Posted in january 2019 Blog, Website

The last year the website has been neglected somewhat, as i was figuring out which way the site and company should be heading. Stay in a simple and lightweight html and css based website, or switch to a more versatile and easy to use content management system. I'm still not sure what is the best route to follow, but i do know ia have to step up the action on this site in 2019.

Some construction, rebuilding and more importantly some heavy additional contributing will be happening in 2019. More pictures of my collection, more information on new sets, more, more, more :-) Stay tuned!

In May 2018 we made a shopping trip to Düsseldorf in Germany. On our agenda was the Playmobil Funstore in the Arcaden shopping mall, and after that we also visited the city center.
The Playmobil Funstore in the Arcaden, s located at gound level and is mostly the same as the funstore in Recklinghausen.

NO more DHL!

NO more DHL

Posted in may 2017 Blog, Website

We are no longer shipping with DHL. We made this decision after some very bad experiences with DHL parcels being damaged badly, transit times much longer then normal and VERY BAD customer support, by DHL.

DHL claims officially denied a claim we made for our customer, who received a badly damaged shipment from us. Both the outer box and the contents were damaged badly due to apparent bad handling of the package. We have provided DHL with all the necessary pictures and forms and still they claim that there is no proof of damage as a result of shipping by DHL.

Our sincere apologies to all customers, who have had bad experiences with the shipments we have sent through DHL in the past.
From now on, we will only shipping our parcels with PostNL.

Herrieden PM-Distribution outlet-sale

new

Posted in may 2017 Blog, Website

PM distribution center Herrieden

Each year, Playmobil has a large outlet-sale in their distirbution center in Herrieden, Germany. We learned about this through several of the PM fan forums, and really wanted to go there for the first time. The only problem with this, is that we live on the North Sea coast in the Netherlands, and Herrieden is Bavaria, Germany near Nürnberg.

So, we ended up planning a short weekend trip to Herrieden and Zirndorf (PM Funpark) together with Fleur. We booked a nice guesthouse in the area and made our way there on friday. The sale was on saturday & sunday, but we opted for the saturday visit to both Herrieden and the Funpark, as we needed to drive home again on sunday.

The weather was cloudy, but the sun was also pretty warm and doing his best to keep us all nice and warm. Rain and thunderstorms were expected, but we didn't see those untill later on the day.
After a great breakfast in the hotel, we made our way to Herrieden, early in the morning. As soon as we exited the highway at Herrieden, we ran into a traffic, all going to the Distribution center sale.
