Default Father's day gift

We went shoping on Saturday...a little visit to ToysRus, kids wanted to get my gift for father's day. They figured the new re-released wood cabin would be a great idea......I've talked about it often enough. Anyway, they got me 5918 and I added to it by getting 5898 (see the first 2 pictures). Once home we got the sets together and with my daughter's help we set it up as per attached picture. I like them a lot. I'm speciallt happy to finaly own the mousse.

I will be reviewing both sets a little later and will be posting additional pictures.

Mad Nick

PS: Can you find Piglet on the third picturte?

That's a wonderful Father's Day gift!
It's very nice that your children wanted to buy Playmo for you and that you have a chance to play with it together.
Especially on Father's Day!

Great fathers day gift!
I got # 4228 pick-up truck and quad (will also review later).

Nick, sorry for being crude, but what does set actually 5898 cost? I found one on Ebay for 34 USD, but they also calculate USD 28 for shipping to Europe... I like the small 4x4 very much, but find the set rather expensive.

The regular price for 5898 is $24.99 (CDN) but I paid $19.99 (CDN), it was on sale. The 4x4 looks a lot better than the picture.

A lovely Father's Day gift which I am certain you deserve Nick. (I wish my children could buy me Playmo but it is rather more difficult when it has to be mail ordered,)
I don't recall seeing the second set before and the "elk" is one of my favourite playmo animals. I have one on display on my sideboard at the moment.
Cheers
Janette
