I know Germany has an issue with integration of non-Germans, but really!!!

They made Indians (along with Cowboys)!

Are you sure they only make white people?

IdrisTheDragon Mon 14-Jul-08 21:36:25

I'm sure we have some that aren't white

Black girl here

True, but not all "Indian" people round by me have feathered ankle rings and DD bound to wonder!

Not true. We have loads of Playmobil and we have black characters as well as white.

Cool, was hoping if I asked someone would know where I can get some...

I have alot of Playmobil and it is mostly white. We have only 3 people out of about 25 that are black.

not so

we have about little children ones in all colours

Definitely not white, but probably not quite what you meant!

Non-white pirate

African American family

Mediterranean/Hispanic Family

Asian Family

Love2bake, that is my point. Its really hard to find the non-white figures. DD can't build our family until we do! You'd have thought that Playmobil would have twigged...

Idris, great links, especially the first! Thank you. I will now go and bankrupt myself.

My DS has the playmobil rescue helicopter and one of the pilots is black.

He also has the pirate ship and one of the pirates is a strange orangey colour.
