Who Will Buy my Fresh Eggs?
It’s market day in town, and everyone knows that Clotilde the farmer’s wife sells the biggest and freshest eggs in the region. The wives of the town, the cooks, maids and even a few children sent by their mothers flock to Clotilde, thrusting coins into her hand as they try to obtain her beautiful brown and pearly white eggs before she sells them all to someone else. It is generally agreed that Clotilde’s eggs help make the best cakes and custards.
This year the FFF+ Group have decided to have a weekly challenge called “Snap Happy”. A different theme chosen by a member of the group each week, and the image is to be posted on the Monday of the week.
This week the theme, “egg” was chosen by Lisa, red stilletto.
Two of the wonderful things that attract people, young and old alike, to Playmobil are their vibrant colours and the array of different items that are produced: even eggs both brown and white!
Playmobil is a line of toys produced by the Brandstätter Group, headquartered in Zirndorf, Germany. Production began in 1974. Playmobil began to be sold worldwide in 1975, and by 2009, approximately 2.2 billion Playmobil figures had been sold. The signature Playmobil toy is a 7.5 cm tall human figure with a particular smiling face. A wide range of accessories, buildings and vehicles, as well as many sorts of animals, are also part of the Playmobil line. Playmobil toys are produced in themed series of sets as well as individual special figures and playsets. New products and product lines developed by a 50-strong development team are introduced frequently, and older sets are discontinued. Promotional and one-off products are sometimes produced in very limited quantities. These practices have helped give rise to a sizeable community of collectors.
