Yes, Playmobile is a great toy... if you're raising COMMUNISTS.
Observe:



Okay, here's the problem. First of all, as is plainly obvious, this particular set is a TV crew. Notice the latest in Soviet minicam technology.

"TVI"?! Does that sound like any good, commercial, capitalist network you've ever heard of? Me neither.

Finally... Nice red hat, comrade.

2. Example #2:


Okay, here we have an alleged Viking ship.

Or is it?

No, it's not.

It's a metaphor for Communist expansion Westward. That's why the ship is facing the left, or west.

Finally, nice red flag, comrade...

7. Uh, that ain't a sickle. But the RED coat says something anyway,
comrade.

Redstone

(Damn, red there, too. OK, I confess!)

5. Four to twelve years old? Have they ever seen a 12-year-old kid?
Or talked to one? Somehow, I don't picture many American 12-year-old boys wanting to play with something like this. Unless, maybe, the woman was nekkid...

8. Example #4:


Hey, look! A good ol' American Playmobile kiosk!!

Wrong.

Notice the posters inside the kiosk? That's "cyrillic", or "Communist" writing.

Do you know what it says? It says "If you can read this, you are a Communist".

Tra La la! Let's go shopping!

Oh, wait, there's nothing in the shops to buy... just like Soviet Russia!

Or maybe it's even more sinister... "hey, kids... dismantle your free-market economy... leave your carts EMPTY!"

Also, nice red hat again, Stalin.

13. Example #7:


Hmmm.... looks like the assassin missed Trotsky's ear with that icepick. Maybe he fooled the Secret Police by dressing like a pirate.

"Arrrrrrr, matey, ever been to Siberia?!"

Da.

CAUGHT IN THE ACT!



Surveillance photo shows KGB operatives removing shock absorbers and other equipment from motorcycles owned by free-market economy nations before a race.

Anything goes when it comes to victory for Mother Russia, right Boris?

You know who the only people who enjoyed "Tron" were, don't you?

That's right... Communists.

17. Example #10 (final nail in the coffin):


"Playmobile International Border Armed Checkpoint Set".

Adding the other sets in the series (high concrete wall, landmines, razor wire, guard towers), and you got yourself a nice little GULAG.
