Just darn funny: Playmobil Security Check Point customer reviews

By: Shannon Bryan

Meet the airport security toy known as the Playmobil Security Check Point. It aims to teach kids about security checkpoints, baggage searches, and metal detectors – perhaps in lieu of a family vacation to the wilds of Tampa.

It’s supposed to be educational. But the customer reviews on amazon.com are what really makes this product worth perusing:

“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 B757 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.”
