TSA training tool

It took my breath away. Whatever happened to playing doctor? All searches must be supervised, kids.

Wouldn't you know it, Playmobil (Geobra Brandst├Ątter) is a German company. I don't think their market research was very good on this one.

The reviews on Amazon are pretty funny, though they say they "don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." Oh, and they claim 60 or so of the people who bought it also grabbed an L. Ron Hubbard book. Maybe that's some strange crosscurrent since the German government has been harrassing Scientologists for years.

3172 Security Check-in Every single smuggler is caught at the security check-in. With a modern X-ray machine every item not allowed on board is detected. At the same time, the passengers have to pass the passenger check-in under the watchful eyes of the security staff. Only then can they start in their hard-earned vacation.

The 60 or so who managed to snag one, are probably holding onto something that will be pretty valuable. A discontinued toy with current events value.

I think I prefer my cousin's French Revolution playset. Something, about watching the severed head drop into the basket, speaks to me.

Don't try to bring the toy through the airport. Actually, it's not listed as discontinued yet on their website.

There may be a French Revolution set. They've got everything else.
