Playmobil Security Check Point isn't really a toy for 3-to-7-year-olds --- it's a collectible. In a few years, you can sell it for real money.

What's the fuss about? Start with the manufacturer's hype: "The woman traveler stops by the security checkpoint. After placing her luggage on the screening machine, the airport employee checks her baggage. 2009-02-03-41G9WA5NRDL._SL500_AA280_.jpgThe traveler hands her spare change and watch to the security guard and proceeds through the metal detector."

After you finish shaking your head that this thing was ever approved and manufactured, scroll down to the Reader Reviews. You'll giggle. You'll howl. You'll send the link to everybody you know.

(If only this were really funny.)
