Toys for these Modern Times

Postby Prof. Wagstaff » Thu Feb 28, 2008 3:51 pm

What kid wouldn't want to play with the Playmobil Airport Security Check Point?

The comments really make this link worth checking out.

I was a little disappointed when I first bought this item, because the functionality is limited. My 5 year old son pointed out that the passenger's shoes cannot be removed. Then, we placed a deadly fingernail file underneath the passenger's scarf, and neither the detector doorway nor the security wand picked it up. My son said "that's the worst security ever!".


This is great learning too for young brownshirts.

I also look forward to the upcoming Halliburton Play detention center real simulated barbed wire.


Thank you Playmobil for allowing me to teach my 5-year old the importance of recognizing what a failing bureaucracy in a ever growing fascist state looks like. Sometimes it's a hard lesson for kids to learn because not all pigs carry billy clubs and wear body armor.

I also highly recommend the Playmobil "farm fencing" so you can take your escorted airline passenger away and fence him behind bars as if he were in Guantanamo Bay.


At first it looked as though my Playmobil terrorist cell was going have trouble getting through this security system - no naked flames, sharp objects, guns or bombs. Then I bought the Tobacco Lobbyist upgrade pack which allowed cigarette lighters to be carried through so they simply torched the plane instead.


This toy set is clearly a re-enactment of one of the most priceless scenes in one of the greatest rock movies of all time, "This is Spinal Tap". But if that's the case, how could they possibly leave out the best part of the entire scene--the Playmobil bass player with Playmobil aluminum foil zucchini in his jock???


And my personal fave:
The traveler looks French... The French are why we need security checkpoints in the first place.

Isn't Playmobil's corporate slogan, "Preparing red state kids for a life long destiny of minimum wage jobs since 1929"?

I bought the Weebles Waterboarding set for my toddler. Damn thing about them Weebles; they wobble but they never fall down.

Actually, even though I am too old on playing toys, I still collect toys as my inspiration in my work. I am collecting toys for almost 2 years. I also buy some toys in wholesale party supplies. seo services

Shit. Seeing an Oprah post on this thread makes me miss him all over again.

May he rest in peace.

I found myself looking at matchbox cars. My boys always liked the ones that did things. Our favorite was the garbage truck. I think they made the trashman's day, because he'd see my two guys enraptured by the whole operation.

Do I really need another complete set of pastels?
