Over the years we’ve found a couple of Efteling things in charity shops in our local area. We found a Pardoes glass once, and another time we found a small Laaf clock. This was years and years ago though.
Then, within the last 10 days, we’ve gotten our hands on all of these things pictured below…
Good things come in 3s right?! Pardoes and the small Laaf are from charity shops, and the 3 bigger Laafs came from Facebook Marketplace about 3 minutes from my house. Score!
I’m interested to hear if anyone else has found any Efteling stuff on their travels around second-hand shops/markets etc.

I found my first 2 Laafs together at a fair in a hall. This started my addiction. Since then my other Laafs have been purchased on e-bay. Some with passports some without, some with boxes and some without. I am 3 letters short off the full alphabet. Since moving house, unfortunately, they have been stored in the loft, with nowhere to set them up to view as there are a few large ones. Can you tell me when production ceased, please?
Hi Kirstie! They stopped making them around 2004 I believe. Good luck on finding your last letters! There’s more info about Laaf products here: https://www.eftepedia.nl/lemma/Laaf_Products_BV#2002
