I think we paid £60 a few years ago but it was worth it. It's always been a bath toy and considering I've never cleaned the limescale off, it still looks good. Dd3 (11) still plays with it (although she'll kill me for telling everyone!)
Thanks for the info OPc0904. does it just come through on the main Playmobil Website?
I know what you mean about the Egyptian stuff. It looks fab. And of course, the Egyptian era is next for the Y4 curriculum, so though dd isn't keen right now, I suspect that will change dramatically as soon as it clocks around.
For now squillyjr is looking for the Roman Ampitheatre for Christmas and any deal would be great for us. She's threatening to sell some of her old junk toys on Ebay to make space money for it so fingers crossed, we can get away without spending all our own money on it
We just got hold of a bank robbers set from one of the retail outlets and it's so cute. It has it's own safe with a lockable combination and two bank robbers, one complete with 'stubble' and a flat cap. DD thinks it's the bees knees.
Love the Romans too! Re the damaged box sale I think you have to ring up from Monday 26th and ask what's available, might be worth checking that date nearer the time but I'm sure they said it would be during half-term. I don't think they list the items on their website, good luck with the ampitheatre!
Ahh - since we have bank, farm, airport, police station, roman amphitheatre (SquillyJr has good taste - it's great) as acquired by DS, I have a cunning plan to brainwash persuade DD that now she is a big girl she needs either Noah's Ark or the Circus for Christmas, but I can't decide which

Top tip for those considering bath-based Playmobil - get a sink strainer for your bath plughole, unless you fancy trying to rescue baby animals / diver's flippers from the U bend?
