Great lesson for the kids!, September 9, 2005
By loosenut (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews

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 B
757 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-surveillence society. My son said he wants the Playmobil
Neighborhood Surveillence 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 Abu-Gharib Interogation Set
instead (it comes with a cute little memo from George Bush).

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. Hours of fun for all the family.

Product Description

From the Manufacturer
The woman traveler stops by the security checkpoint. After placing her luggage on the screening machine, the airport employee checks her baggage. The traveler hands her spare change and watch to the security guard and proceeds through the metal detector. With no time to spare, she picks up her luggage and hurries to board her flight!

They forget to mention the strip search :tisk:

I think Playmobil is already working on this...an Abu Graib version that allows tykes to sodomize naked prisoners with blunt objects and stack them in human pyramids. Educational-icious!
