Not just any farm
November 29, 2014 12:06 PM   Subscribe

My 3,5 year old's number one wish for christmas is a "farm, with two people cutting wood with scissors". I was stymied, until my husband said he vaguely remembers seeing an ad with her on a German children's tv channel. He thinks it may have been a Playmobil ad and there was, among other things, two guys sawing wood.

I checked both playmobil and lego farm offerings on the internet, but no sawing of wood, that I can see. The child is quite adamant about this bit.

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

To me this sounds like one of those old-timey windup toys like this one.

This sounded like possibly a Schleich figurine to me-- it looks like they have a woodcutting scenery pack that's discontinued but available on eBay, if that might work?

Playmobil sets that include cutting / scissor- like accessories: lumberjack, architecht, construction workers.
I'm also remembering a set from childhood with a two-person saw. (Maybe this set? Not sure.)

Other avenues to consider: maybe something with pioneers?

Might it be something in the Sylvanian Families line?

Here's a handmade one on eBay.

Maybe it was a Bruder set like this?
