Is it just me or is this thread really quiet ?
Normally we are all going mad to get our kids the Migros Manias?
I am desperate to get the first ever Joker at least as I was sick and missed that one ,
is no one interested this time ?
See my post above.

The quality is so bad it's not worth it.

I have a big bag full of the stuff, my kids don't even want them... Whoever agrees to pay the postage can have the whole lot!

Re: Migros SuisseMania -another collection begins

I totally agree the Quality this year is no where near as good as other years.
For me though my older son is enjoying the collection more for a historical point of view but even he has commented on the poor quality of the structures and stickers.
I will happily pay the postage if you can give me the ones I need please. Can you send me a message please , many thanks

Re: Migros SuisseMania -another collection begins

I agree with the quality, but for the three of us it's possibly more about learning about the country than about the figurines themselves. The book is an interesting read as well.

The Troll had absolutely no interest in the dinos the first year we were here (not lifelike enough in comparison to his existing Schleich collection), the next year top collection was mildly amusing for a while (we still have them), and we skipped the magnetic thingy altogether last year.

Will update my list later today, got quite a few doubles now, but still missing many...

Re: Migros SuisseMania -another collection begins

Aw! I think the collection is cute! My daughter didn't take to it at first but when she recognized some of the buildings from basel she was all for it! Now she wants us to take her around switzerland, so from a learning perspective actually it works. She sets up all the buildings daily here on the table and she drives the little buses around them with her brother. Any toy that gives at least ten minutes peace a day is a hit with me!! But its true, not many i know are collecting..
I think the postage is a little crazy this time as some are bulky and have to be sent under package, which might be holding some back. I'm happy to send stuff out though, but maybe we could hold off until the end and send one big parcel with whatever i have for you. What is the end date btw? Whoever i've promised numbers to so far, they are aside here..
Leftover we have doubles of 01, 03, 06, 09, 13, 16, 23, 27, 28, 32, 34, 43, 49.

We still need: C, 07, 14, 15, 18, 21, 26, 33, 36, 38, 50

Edit: Oh! And the sticker from 30 please!

Re: Migros SuisseMania -another collection begins

Today's update. I have:

D
3 (twice), 6, 19, 21, 22, 31, 32, 34, 37, 39 (twice), 43 and 46.

I need:
C
2, 11, 18, 24, 25, 27, 30, 38, 40, 41, 47.

I'm getting a bit discouraged, I went to the store every day this week and apart from this week's joker I haven't received any new figurines, only doubles.

The Troll wants the Matterhorn, not so sure anymore that we'll get there...

Hi everyone sorry for the late arrival in the collection swap. This collection is going very slowly and we dont have many to exchange.

We have to give 06, 27 x2, 34, 42.

Still looking for 02, 04, 05, 07, 08, 09, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31, 33, 35, 36, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 44, 45, 47, 50.
Of these my son is really more excited about the ones in bold if anyone has them.
Happy to pay postage.

Regards
Jain

Hi Jain,

Most of them are still in the orange wraps, and I don't have the patience to open and sort them all. I send the whole lot or nothing (about 100 I'd guess, including the orange bag)

Can I have them please? We have a friend whose kid is a seriously avid collector of these things which I think are hideous personally.

Re: Migros SuisseMania -another collection begins

So, not sure why I got wrangled into this - as Aldi and now COOP has another collect as you go campaign and I swear I am not doing them (well, the Aldi one may be over now, I have been held hostage to shopping at Migros and haven't been there in a while!)

I have a bunch of doubles (or more) and need a few more to complete this set. I went with the "learn about Switzerland" hook to justify collecting these things this time, and I do think it is valid. I bought the game, mostly to have a good place to put all the buildings and the kids have played it a little, but will break it out soon. I do agree the buildings picked out give you ideas to visit!

So, here are my lists of what I have and what I need I have PM'd 2 of you who have already posted here and haven't included those in my list...

I need: 7, 11, 24, 29, 35, 42, 44, 49, 50

I can offer: 1, 5 (5 extras!), 12 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 32, 34 (x2), 40 (x2), 43 (x3), 46 (x2)

Thanks and am happy this is coming to a close. And I swear, I am NOT doing anymore of these schemes to take my money

Re: Migros SuisseMania -another collection begins

Hi everyone,

Finally got hooked on a supermarket marketing ploy too and am trying to collect all the Suisse Mania figures.

The numbers on offer are; 2, 4, 7, 9, 11, 3X16, 20, 23, 28, 33, 34, 40(no sticker), 2X43, 46.

Currently my collection is missing; 3, 5, 8, 12, 17, 19, 21, 22, 24, 27, 29, 30, 36, 38, 42, 47, 50 and the first 3 jokers.

Cheers,

Barbara

Have you checked whether your Migros (or one nearby) has a swap session?
Our Migros restaurant has them every Wednesday afternoon.
