I’m not even really sure what to say about this.
The girls and I were shopping in Mega, our grocery store, and we happened down one of the toy aisles. The toy selection in Cabo is horrid. It’s all obscenely over-priced and the toys are just sort, “eh.” Literally, they’ll charge you $30 for a Barbie doll that you can buy at Kroger in Ohio for $5. (I don’t buy Barbies. FYI.)
In our home, we like Playmobils and legos a ton.
But this particular playmobil… well…
Something feels off.
This is a jail.
It comes with a warden and a “criminal.”
There are hand cuffs, a hand gun, what appears to be a beating stick, a semi-automatic assault rifle (I’m guessing?) and a megaphone (which did make me smile.)
I’m not sure what that grey board-like thing is under the megaphone. A computer? A keyboard?
So normally playmobils feature cool play scenes: like science labs or vet’s offices or horse farms or bakeries.
This one is actually a playmobil wherein our kids are taught to learn profiling.
Apparently sleeveless skull t-shirts, two or more necklaces, facial [and chest] stubble and biker helmets = criminals.
Eyebrows may also be considered deviant.
Cargo pants? OFFENSIVE beyond belief. #fashion crime. (I’m actually ok with this one.)
Creepy though? The smile on the policeman’s face whilst holding that gun.
The jail looks to have closed circuit TVs and also a cot and a toilet and sink.
So there are real-life amenities.
I’m not sure what this is demonstrating or if I can support it.
Is that a pirate? I mean that’s a hat with a feather plume on it, no?
And a horse? There’s a horse that comes with this?
How do those fit in? I’m confused.
In conclusion… this is strange.
