Playmobil Gets In on the Security Action

What the hell, people? Who went and told all of the toy companies that the nation’s kids were clamoring for security-themed toys? Misty just showed me the Playmobil Security Check Point.

Playmobil Security Check Point

I think this is even creepier than Scan-It because it’s Playmobil. Look at everyone’s blankly happy faces. I guess to make this more realistic you’ll also need to buy the 100-pack of Playmobil people to form a line. I wonder if they will all be dressed like mimes who are trying to disguise themselves via sky-blue sweaters tied around their necks.

The best part — assuming there is only one best part and not a continuing buffet of bestest parts — is that, as of right now, Amazon’s list of “Customers Who Bought Items Like This Also Bought” are, in order, Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, Self Analysis, and Clear Body, Clear Mind, all by L. Ron Hubbard. Does the Church of Scientology have a controlling interest in Playmobil?

    If you scroll down further on that same Amazon page, you will see some more disturbing things. Such as the Safe-Crackers lego kit, the Hazmat Team, the medical helicopter set, and the airline terminal set(also by Playmobil).

    Who are these people? Someone must have a twisted sense of humor.

    (BTW, I found these links under the ‘People who viewed this item also viewed’ category)

    I see a WhatTheCast episode forming before our eyes.

    Clearly the airline terminal set needs to be combined with the security checkpoint set.
