It doesn’t sound very exciting, I admit. However, the new card readers at Efteling are pretty cute, featuring a few different animated characters on the idle screen such as Pardoes, Jokie and the Flying Fakir. Adding a little magic everywhere! Check out Eftelwesley’s video below:
Efteling merchandise has varied in quality over the years, from very good to very tacky! As an Efteling fan, there are quite a few things that I *wish* they would make available, so I’m going to make a few mini posts, kind of like an Efteling ‘wishlist’ of what I’d like to see to buy in the park.
Some of these things have been available before, so it’ll also be a bit of a nostalgia trip.
First up…Room spray! But I don’t necessarily want it back…
I would love for Efteling to make this into a candle, because to be honest, the room spray was a little bit too strong. And by a ‘little’, I mean a lot! One spray of one of those things and you were smelling it for the next week! It’s so strong that I’ve still got a couple of each left, they just seem to last forever!
A candle would be a nice subtle way of having the Fata Morgana and Droomvlucht scents in your home (and maybe some other scents too; gingerbread anyone?). There were once some oils for sale too, which were really nice, and a bit more subtle than the sprays, but I’ve not seen those on recent trips.
As Efteling fans, there have undoubtedly been times when we have walked through the fairy tale forest, wishing that we too could have a musical toadstool at home.
Well now you can! Efteling have been selling ornamental musical toadstools (albeit indoor ones, but that’s ok!) for us to enjoy when we can’t make it to the park. I was lucky enough for Santa to bring me one last month, and now it has found it’s home, so I gave it a whirl…
