Hi, I am in a dilemma and could really do with some advice. Am meant to be collecting some 2nd hand playmobil.. fort bravo, tippee and sherrifs office. Was going for £45 but she will accept £40. Thing is looking on the internet this seems a bit steep. She has just called to see what time i am collecting and i said i would call her back in 10 minutes as been hectic here (which it has). Should i cancel? Is £40 reasonable...? Argghh. Please help.

if you were happy with paying £40 then you should go with it. what would it cost brand new?

yes but factor in the postage cost and see what kind of deal it is then

I Think £60 brand new. It is from late 1980's. Never thought about the postage..

Is 9it going to get 40 quids worth of play out of it? Probably...and you could resell it yourself. Just gonna see what the going rate on ebay is for it...

I would expect to pay up to half price for 2nd hand toys and baby goods TBH so no I don't think its a good deal at all

The special edition sheriff's ofice is £22.99 on here . Are all the bits she offers complete ?

she is missing on small part on the fort i bleive and probably so of the accessories - her ds is now 14 and has had many years play out of it.. which is a good sign i think

The thing is that Playmobil really holds its value well, so often 2nd hand stuff does go for more than you would normally pay for 2nd hand toys. There are a lot of collectors after it as well.

... ok i am going to go for it i think. It is a bit of a drive but i iwl probably regret not getting it (although ds already has far too many toys and wonder whether i shoudl just put the £40 into xmas fund instead.)
