Update....

Posted by Nick Foulger on Saturday, January 23, 2016, In : Website 
I've just realised it's 2016 and my last post was in 2014! Time flies.

Last year I was busy writing the latest Thomas Swift book. However, every day life and focus on work took over. I did however find time to update the Playmobil Hair page in May 2015, and purchase many more klickies with new hairstyles that I have yet to photograph....

It's now 2016 and although I still haven't sorted out my life / work balance, I successfully submitted an ambitious Playmobil project and I now have to create ...

Playmobil Hairstyles!

Posted by Nick Foulger on Monday, April 7, 2014, In : Website 
After over a year I've finally managed to get around to updating the Playmobil Hair page showing all the bare-headed Playmobil hairstyles available and in what colours.

It includes new styles coming out in Germany in the Summer, and I think it's comprehensive... please tell me if you know of any more"!

Woodsetton School Playmobil Display

Posted by Nic on Monday, March 10, 2014, In : Website 
I haven't blogged since September! The main reason is being back at work, but more recently it's because the house has again been overtaken by boxes of Playmobil as I prepared a Western display for the first Playmobil Exhibition at Woodsetton School near Dudley.


Phil, a headmaster responded to my suggestion at the Playmobil Collector's Club of having a Playmobil UK Exhibition, and very kindly offered his school as the ideal venue. He came out with his Playmo habit and soon he had the whole sch...

Back to work!

Posted by Nic on Monday, August 12, 2013, In : Website 

It's been quite a while since I posted: I''ve been busy looking for a job, and I start work tomorrow! (..having just had two weeks holiday with the family in France!) This means that the updates to my new "Me and Playmobil" section have been delayed, but I hope to update the Playmobil Hair section again soon :)

I've also decided what my next writing project will be and will hopefully be able fit this around my full-time job and housework!

Me and Playmobil !

Posted by Nic on Sunday, May 12, 2013, In : Website 


I've just started a new section called "Me and Playmobil" - an opportunity for me to tell you how I got in Playmobil and showcase some of my non Green Man related projects and showcase my project. There's just one section at the moment on some custom buildings and figures, but the next thing I want to post are some pictures of my first Playmobil... or I should say Playpeople :)

Playmobil Hair page updated!

Posted by Nic on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, In : Website 
A major update on the Hair page!  Hopefully I've covered all bare-headed styles and colours. There are plenty of new styles, many first appearing in the Figures series.

There are also 7 new colours - increasing the total by a massive one third in just a year!  Some of them like Pink and Blue appear in the new Fairies series, but I can see these being used for trendy teenagers too!  Two other new colours - Light Yellow and Dark Brown are great general use additions!

However, I've added a picture to the Picture Gallery.

Mistake on UK Shipping Rates

Posted by Nic on Thursday, October 6, 2011, In : Website 
Unfortunately when editing the shipping options button I managed to delete the option for sending 1 book within the UK - which comes to  £2.00.

Many apologies - this has now been corrected!

....more Feedback

Posted by Nic on Friday, September 30, 2011, In : Website 
I've added some more items on the feedback page:  the reaction of my first eBay customer and a blog article by Johanne's partner.  The feedback is very much appreciated.  :)

It seems, from the other things I'm hearing, that the printed book has the advantage of a wider circulation than the eBook, which will please traditionalists!

Johanne's partner runs an online mail order business (www.artistsuk.co.uk) dealing in fantasy art.
