  7. Airport Screening Is Not A Game?

    A few weeks ago, I reported on PlayMobil’s airport screening playset in “From The Mouths of Toymakers.” Dan Solove shows his true commitment by buying one, and documenting his hours of fun in “The Airline Screening Playset: Hours of…

  9. “Those Flying with Small Children…”

    …might want to prepare them for the adventure with the Airline Screening Playset.

    Hours of fun for the whole family bureaucracy!

    This action set would be perfect for my five year old son – he now finds toy guns more effective than toy light sabers anyway. He too is learning to be an effective security guard, because after he has you stick your hands up and then cuffs you – he shoots you.

    Demented airport toy story

    Check out Prof. Solove’s demented airport security toy story. I wonder if this is going into his FBI file. . . .

    Awesome commentary.

    I notice you had them shoot her face down. Couldn’t bear to see the expression of DEATH, huh?

  18. shadow assassin says:

    I would bet that she was still smiling after gunning her down. I think she should be shot repeatedly til she learned her lesson!

  21. Christy says:

    I love this post, though I have an existential question: how does one remove one’s name if one has no name from the No Fly List?

  22. Troy says:

    It makes me wonder if the airplane playset even has a key coded cockpit security door.

    Although with all those guns about, and the frustration of being denied admittance to your important flight, it’s not long before some extreme emotional disturbance manifests itself.

    Well Done! The fact that the passenger kept smiling throughout the entire ordeal just proves she had something to hide- I recomend the body be immediately incinerated in case of biological contamination.

  28. Airline screening playset

    An ultimately timely toy! Forged in the dark entrails of another corporation, it is egregiously politically correct about the joys of the Brave New World – and the linked page reflects it.
