7 of 15 – Playmobil Security Checkpoint
Who knew Playmobil had such a serious side? The retailer is famous for its cute plastic playsets with smiley little people — but it’s not all cottages and dreamhouses.
The Playmobil Security Check Point is a TSA employee’s dream, complete with a traveler, metal detector, two security agents and luggage rolling through a scanner. This “collector’s item” is available from two sellers for about $190.
Other wacky Playmobil sets include the Butcher Shop (Prime shipping available!) and the Police Checkpoint (pistols included).
Strange Random Toy Quote:
“Of all the toys available, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a sound when you jump on it.” – Stephen Baker
