i am so sick of reverse discrimination against qualified white figurines!



Squirreled away in the "Miscellaneous" part of the Playmobil website is their "Multicultural Figure Assortment." As you can see above, what does "multicultural" mean to Playmobil? All black people, except for one orange kid and a dog.

They can be multicultural and still all appear to be black. One is Brazilian, one is Cuban, one is biracial, one is South Asian, one is from the Dominican Republic, and one is from that lost Jewish tribe that was found in Africa a few years back.

And why were you on the Playmobile website? I thought I told you last night that I wanted jewelry for Christmas.

plus, it's not like there's a paucity of white figurines for people to buy to supplement their "multicultural" collection.

Dear Mr. Freese; I would be very interested in purchasing some Polish figurines in honor of the posting that Nina did. I would like some nice peasant type ones but I have not been able to locate any. They would be so charming in my bathroom. Do you have any suggestions? - Helpful in New Hampshire.

what is that horrible leering heart-shaped face coming out of the back of that one playmobil's head?

A Polish feral child?

I think it's some sort of pastry; perhaps LDM could confirm.

"Boys love Playmobil, but the company wants girls to fall in love with its new products."

This is the explanation that goes along with a picture of a girl doll ironing on a delightfully realistic toy ironing board in front of an equally darling toy dryer. And you thought Germany was ignoring the dreams of little girl children around the world!
