A birthday suggestion for your small child...

Playmobil has an Airport Terminal toy that, as Reason puts it, "Prepares Children for Federal Airline Passenger Screening."



I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I first saw this on the Reason Foundation's Reason Report (Winter 2006 issue). Prior to this, they had put in on their blog (Hit & Run), so readers were able to post their own comments. Some of the funniest;
The set needs a little Playmobil drug dog and some contraband for the dog to find on the passengers.
Do their little tiny shoes come off?
What about the children?! The set has parts that are choking hazards. Oh, the humanity!
And
We need a children's book called "Your First Cavity Search."
