Playmobil Security Check Point

A Playmobil "Security Check Point"? Is This For Real?

Okay, I stumbled across this and I'm still rubbing my eyes and trying to figure out if it's real. A Playmobil airport security check point set? Complete with potentially-violating metal-detecting wand, and about-to-be-searched wheelie-bag? But the big question is: are the teeny-tiny shoes removable? They might be a choking hazard. . . .

In all seriousness, I was at SFO once and TSA did a drill while I was in the security area — there was yelling, flashing lights, terrifying commotion — but darned if those good folks didn't get in their positions and seal off that area, lickity-split. I couldn't be more glad we have them keeping us safe — but is it a toy? Really?

Baila: I don't see why it's scary? It's a fact off life that kids will see if they go to the airport and so I don't think it's that big a deal to make it a toy.

Good point.

I don't see the big deal. Playmobil has a entire airport set (http://store.playmobilusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-US-Site/en_US/Search-Show?cgid=Flughafen). It makes sense that they would include a security check in. It has nothing to do with terrorism, it's just a fact of life these days.

This is so cute. If I still worked @ TSA I would put one on my desk ;)

I had the same thought as tresjolie & lilkimbo - this could be very helpful in preparing small children for their first airplane trip. It would also be a funny gift for anyone you know who always has trouble getting through security.

I saw this on Dave Barry's blog ages ago, it's almost too funny to be true! But at the same time... a security checkpoint as a child's toy? This is actually quite scary.

Read the reviews on that toy, a bit funny.

Ahahaha! Tres, my dirty mind has creeped into yours!

Tres, I was thinking the same thing. This might be good to get a young kid who is going through airport security for the first time. It could make it a little less intimidating for them.

Hiya Cine! :WAVE: Does it come with Vaseline? Her her. No that was out of line, I'll stop.

Did you scroll down the link? Apparently, people who looked at that toy were also likely to look at the "Kid's PIMP costume".Argh.

Morning all! I thought the whole concept was so strange and arguably fun, I wanted to make sure you had the freedom to pick "I've got my own answer," and let us know your thoughts on the toy here. It's a little fun-n-weird item for your morning - just some food for thought. . . . Too bad it's on backorder or I'd be playing TSA-drill right now! ;)

I wonder is it comes with little latex gloves for the Playmobile peoples' hands?
