Amazon Funny. Playmobil Security Check Point.

Amazon is at it again with some funny reviews. This time it is the Playmobil Security Check Point.

playmobil security Check point

Check out some of the reviews:

It’s also missing naked playmobil children and playmobil little old ladies getting cavity searched by the TSA agents. I mean, how can you have realistic police state fun without that?

I’m waiting for Playmobil to bring us “Fast and Furious: Mexican Gun Walk” where we see BATF agents permitting drug cartel characters buy guns and cross the border with them.

The playset seemed well build, but none of the other Playmobil action figures I had seemed to enjoy it very much. In fact most of them complained, and are now being detained in an unknown location….

And my very favorite.

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!”. 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.

The best thing about this product is that it teaches kids about the realities of living in a high-surveillance society. My son said he wants the Playmobil Neighborhood Surveillance System set for Christmas. I’ve heard that the CC TV cameras on that thing are pretty worthless in terms of quality and motion detection, so I think I’ll get him the Playmobil Ab-Gharib Interrogation Set instead (it comes with a cute little memo from George Bush).
