New Toys for Summer

School is almost out here at Camp Ramshackle. Around the corner are the wonderfully long summer days to be filled however we please. Of course, there will be many beach days, hikes, library visits and adventures. There will also be days spent at home, enjoying the garden, dirt, drawing and books. In anticipation, I invested in some new toys to celebrate. We try not to buy many plastic toys. Recently, however, my oldest son and I were introduced to Playmobil.

Playmobil is like a role playing Legos. Our new collection has guinea pigs, wild boar, raccoons and a tree house to name a few. The toys are manufactured in Germany.

But the box is always the best part.


  1. We are SO into Playmobil. Fairies, hedgehogs, mermaids, Nepune, farmers, trees. Love it. I love the Egyptian pyramid but it is out of my price range!

  2. I tried to get some hedgehogs, but Playmobil was all out.

  3. Wow! Playmobil has sure come a long way since the early seventies, when they were first brought into the house for my baby sister. I think the first was a swell garage that had a car elevator and several stories with ramps. I think Claire was going on two when it showed up for Christmas, courtesy of Santa Claus, but it was my older sister and brother, aged twenty and nineteen, that played with it the most that day!
