Magpie Monday – Playpeople Doctors and Nurses Super Set
I am so very excited with this recent eBay find! It is the very same ‘Playpeople Doctors and Nurses Super Set’ that my sister Lucy and I had in the mid 1970s when we were little. And still in the original box with most of the bits!
I was inspired to do a quick search for ‘vintage Playmobil’ on eBay after reading this post about Vintage Toys on the Lulastic and the Hippy Shake blog. And this Doctors and Nurses Set appeared at the top of the list as it was ‘ending soon’. So I couldn’t resist buying it. I don’t have many of my childhood toys to pass on to my son, because my mum believed that toys should be played with and not kept in boxes gathering dust. And I agree with her. But it is always nice to give a new home to an old toy, especially if that toy is one you remember fondly from when you were a kid.
My son is enjoying playing with this set just as much as I did when I was a child, as you can see in the bottom left of the photo above. Of course, my son knows this type of toy as ‘Playmobil’ because he already has a couple of sets of the modern stuff. Our favourite is the Family Camper pictured below.
I’m joining in with this week’s Magpie Monday linky which always contains lots of fantastic examples of pre-loved treasure that people have found.
