Inappropriate Playmobil sets


Topless Robot has a funny roundup of inappropriate Playmobil sets.  As a kid, I loved Playmobil, and half-knew that something was off about their sets.  They were too realistic, to a degree.  But it’s a German toy company, so what can you do.

Like the set above.  It’s for a Rescue Team.  Pretend for a moment one of your Playmobil peeps decides to end their life by jumping off a building (it’s funny to think this would come from the imagination of an eight-year-old).  Thankfully the rescue team is there to either clean up the sidewalk or save the day with the giant mattress landing pad.

    Yeah, no, that's probably the intention. But it's much more fun to think of the set as a suicide prevention one.

    Maybe you forgot that the mattress can also be used to rescue someone trapped by the flames and smoke and has no other choice but to jump out the window and be rescued. Nice thinking though…
