As an adjunct to this product, I would also recommend that you purchase the Playmobil Armed Standoff Playset, Fisher-Price Little People Battering Ram, and the Nerf Tear-Gas Canister Deployment Gun.
Bill of Rights sold separately.
Finally, I found the Playmobil Police Checkpoint. It's everything a colorful plastic method of indoctrination should be: mobile, plastic, and filled with red warning signs. I love setting it up outside my house. That way I feel like I have to show papers to get in. I know I own it, but it's cooler if the state lets me in. They know best.
Still, I have a complaint about this darling set. I mean, I'm no curmudgeon, and I hate to nit-pick, especially over such a usefully didactic toy. But I must-
Lately, junior had frightened the missus and I over breakfast when he told us his third grade teacher was teaching evolution. Needless to say, we didn't have the money to file a lawsuit against the school. However, for just a fraction of that legal cost we could simply purchase this little gem to help eradicate the terrorist concepts that had been incubating in his head, such as "freedom of thought" or "unmonitored domestic travel". Lately, we even started setting this little playset up on his pillow as an alternative to money after he lost his baby teeth.
He cried when he woke, but it was a lesson well-learned. Where is your tooth fairy now, Junior? Where is your god now?! Thanks Playmobile!!
What with the War on Terror escalating to the Red Level any day now, I think it is so important our children learn how to surrender their freedoms and civil liberties at the youngest age possible.
If only I could have had this educational toy to play with when I was a child, I wouldn't be asking so many unpatriotic questions that no one in the government seems to want to answer, like:
-Why are we still in Iraq and exactly how do we win an occupation?
-Since when did it become okay to have unconstitutional wars?
-How was the 342-page Patriot Act assembled so quickly when it usually takes the government years to do anything?
-Why wasn't the government in nearly as much of a rush to investigate 9-11 or even intercept the planes or try very hard to capture that wascally wabbit Osama?
What's really great about this toy is that it's totally portable and easy to pack up and transport when you're in a hurry -- like if we ever get invited to one of those camp resorts we've heard so much about (I think they're sponsored by FEMA). Highly recommended for all ages.
Why in just over 10 minutes of play my 3 year old was kicking and beating his other dolls as they failed to slow down fast enough through the checkpoint.
The set lacks for realism as the officers are equipped with sidearms, but with no tasers or nightsticks. I hope Playmobil comes out with an accessory set for this soon.
We are really looking forward to the Playmobil Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib play sets for the next level up.
Why little Martin is goose stepping already, how precious.

Good toy for teaching your little ones about how to submit to illegal detainment and searches in the age of the Patriot Act. It seems to me like some parts are missing, though. Read morePublished on March 11, 2013 by Robert Haven
