I know Playmobil has kind of “Poor man’s Lego reputation, but they have got a lot more choices in the cat department. Playmobil Purrfect Stay Cat Boarding set.
Not gonna lie; overall, I prefer Legos. But Playmobil has some interesting pieces, and I have been known to mix Legos and Playmobil pieces in the quest for the perfect Strollercat action figure.
It kind of started when Björn bought me the Playmobil Woman with Cat Family set as a surprise. After that, I dragged out all my other cat pieces and scoured eBay for more.
Then we saw this ad for a contest in Kattliv where the prize was this set. Well, I needed that shiny device! So we found one in a toy store.
Alfred was eager to help me build it.
It’s actually a pretty cool set.
Hauspanther would be proud of all the catification going on up in here. And the detail is fun, too. There are stickers to put on little cans of cat food as labels and a sticker for the litter box that looks like (clean, unused) litter!
Only one problem: not enough kitties! So I added all the random Playmobil cats I had collected and added them in.
Like this small cat tree (with carpet stickers for the shelves).
And these two iterations of Strollercats. The little grey one is, of course, Lorelai.
This one is my absolute favourite, though. Somewhere along the line I picked up a veterinary set which included this patient, complete with Cone of Shame.
But the best part is, she even has stitches! I’m not sure which set this goes with; I must have gotten it as a random cat piece on eBay. I can find the cat with stitches as a part of this set, but she hasn’t got the cone or the bed.
Here’s the house again with the extra cats added in. Much better.
Oh, wait! Here, let’s add two more cats…
Suddenly, the poor cat boarding house was attacked by Roryzilla!
She’s already using her grabby Aby hands to pick things up, as you can see.
Oh well. At least Freddy didn’t sit on it…
