Do your kids love traveling and the whole airport experience… including security? The Playmobil Security Checkpoint set includes an airport security scanner, one suitcase and three Playmobile figures (2 security guards, 1 passenger). But how accurate is this set when you can’t even remove the passenger’s shoes or harass them for having a bottle of water? Internet users are using the Playmobil Security Checkpoint toy (Amazon; $50) as a way to vent.

Playmobil Security Checkpoint: Funny User Reviews

Some Amazon users are having fun reviewing the Playmobil Security Checkpoint online. They are using the toy set as a way to express their frustrations about TSA Body Scans and airport security restrictions. Here are a few funny reviews of the Playmobil Security Checkpoint:

1Redacted Review

“██ █ ████ everything ███ █████ is █████ ████ ████ fine ████ ███ █ ██████ love █████ ███████ ███ your █████ ████ government.” Via Paul Nord

2Toy Is Identical To Actual TSA Training Materials

3Faulty Security Resulted In Unregistered Aliens In Child’s Toy Box

“The scanner failed and I now have 8000 unregistered aliens in my child’s toy box, claiming asylum. Please rectify.” Via Mark

4Racial Profiling

“One of my daughters walked Dora the Explorer through the checkpoint and was instantly asked to produce her papers!” Via Peter Strother

5Missing Items From Luggage

“Some of the “passengers” began complaining of missing items from their luggage. I found the items in a Playmobil Security Manager’s Office, which I hadn’t realized I ordered.” Via Michael Trapp

6Barbie Gets Strip Searched

“I would NOT use Barbie or Bratz dolls with this toy. They’re highly likely to be pulled aside for pat-downs or strip searches.” Via Edward Falk

7Missing Full Body Scanner And Unmanned Checkpoints

“My kids and I like the Playmobil Security Checkpoint, but several options are missing and/or needed to be included. The no privacy full body scanner, and the cavity search back room are not included. You also need to buy at least 3 sets and leave two of them unmanned and closed for more realism.” Via DLH

8Passenger’s Shoes Cannot Be Removed

“I was a little disappointed when I first bought this item because the functionality is limited. My 5-year-old son pointed out that the passenger’s shoes cannot be removed. Then, we placed a deadly fingernail file underneath the passenger’s scarf, and neither the detector doorway nor the security wand picked it up. My son said, “that’s the worst security ever!”. But it turned out to be okay because when the passenger got on the Playmobil B757 and tried to hijack it, she was mobbed by a couple of other heroic passengers, who only sustained minor injuries in the scuffle, which were treated at the Playmobil Hospital.” Via Loosenut

9No Verbal Communication And Limited Flexibility, Just Like The Real Thing

“In preparation for our first flight with our daughter, we purchased this Playmobile Security Checkpoint. It was to our benefit. This security checkpoint comes equipped with TSA agents that have no verbal communication, no sense of reality, and limited flexibility. The checkpoint was very real to life; since we did not read all directions before beginning to play with the toy, sirens went off and we were told to move away from the toy, separate ourselves and face the wall. After proper instruction and many repetitions of proper behavior, we were able to play with the toy again, but we had been red flagged so we had to be very careful what we said or did as to not set off another set of alarms.” Via Volvochic_2

10Fun Way For Kids To Learn About The Police State

“My kids and I love playing with this set together! There’s nothing like a little bonding time while learning about the police state. Anyway, it’s almost perfect; I only have two complaints. 1) The clothes won’t come off the figures. How are we supposed to play strip-search WHEN THE CLOTHES DON’T FREAKING COME OFF?!?!?!?! I had to paint one of the figures naked so the kids would pretend to strip-search him. 2) There’s no terrorist figurine or bomb pack. Although I’m sure Playmobil will come out with an expansion pack in the future, right now there’s no way to have a terrorist figurine. All my kids can do is pretend to strip search the innocent instead of letting terrorists through.” Via Madoc
