A great new toy from Playmobil, apparently. Offered through Amazon. Check out the reviews!

otoh, maybe I've been joked?

This wouldn't surprise me at all, but I'm not convinced it's genuine.

For national security reasons, of course.

I particularly enjoyed the Most Helpful Customer Reviews!

This is great learning tool for young brownshirts.

I am waiting for a few accessories though, kids size jackboots and a toy Taser. Think how much fun that will be for your young Martin Bormann types. I envision a low voltage say 5KV instead of 50kv to give a realistic but non-hazardous jolt....

I also look forward to the upcoming Halliburton Play detention center real simulated barbed wire.


Someone else thinks it's real, too.

If it is a hoax, Playmobil is in on it.

They're missing the "play" Tasers. Maybe the Horsemen could add that to their collection of stuffed animals, keychains, and so on.

As a little kid in the 1950s, my toys were Dinky Toys and Lionel electric trains (they were cheap back then...). As soon as I got my first 3-speed bicycle, the toys went to the church rummage sale. I'm 58 and still cycling, and likely will be to the end of my life.

Speaking of kids' toys, I used to have a dragon called "Puff" who lived by the sea. He frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee.

It's said that he will live forever and I don't doubt that for a moment.

I always wanted an electric train set. I'd still like one A steam-powered set would be even better!

I have some HO scale trains here - they're small - I was going to get back into the hobby when I retired, but I don't have any space for them. What I have is more for hard core HO modelists than for just playing with on a rainy day. I think you can still get new Lionel train sets in O gauge, but they tend to be expensive.

Yeah, I've looked into it a bit. It's all too expensive for me right now. And space is another problem.

But someday, when I have a little money and a little more space, I'm going to get a set and make some mountains and villages and .... or perhaps a prairie.

Meanwhile, there's this:

I have a few electric train videos here, including a Lionel video, and lots of Lionel train books. I should put them all on eBay and see what happens.
