Police States ‘R’ Us

February 5, 2009

checkpoint

It’s never too early to start training your kids in lifelong habits of acquiesence to authority and the presumption of guilt, so remember this Playmobil Security Checkpoint set whenever you get clutched up on a gift idea for the lil’ sprouts. Set it up with this Playmobil Police Checkpoint and the Scan-It Operation Checkpoint Toy X-Ray and your rumpus room will be like a window into the mind of Dick Cheney. All I want to know is, when does the Playmobil  Waterboard Interrogation set come out? (Thanks, Marc.)

    The “user” comments on Amazon.com are a hoot!

    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!”. But it turned out to be okay, because when the passenger got on the Playmobil B757 and tried to hijack it, she was mobbed by a couple of other heroic passengers, who only sustained minor injuries in the scuffle, which were treated at the Playmobil Hospital.

    Did you know that the designer of Playmobil people just died?
