Okay, so I'm looking forward to buying toys that I can test drive for the little girl.
Let us consider a ride on the Playmobil:
Take a simple "Baby's Room Set"and add some "Jewel Thieves"
and you have yourself a perfect afternoon game of
Who kidnapped the Lindbergh baby?
Fun, fun, fun! (and teaches history too)
There are a lot of cops and robbers in the Playmobil world, which is cool, although it seems the Playmobil municipal lock-up facility has some serious security flaws.
But there are some vast pieces of history too.
Journey, would you like to play Roman Stadium?
We can feed Christians to the lions - where is that Nativity set anyway? Oh wait, those are Jews. Although are the wise men Christians at that point? Surely Mary and Joseph were not Christians during the dark manger days. See, we're asking questions and learning together!
Let's find ourselves a Playmobil fiery oven in which to stuff little plastic Shadrach, Meshach, and the Indigo Girls. Woo-hoo!
And the granddaddy of them all, in my opinion, has to be the Playmobil Pyramid.
It includes a skeleton, a sarcophagus, some Canopic jars for organs. It even has scorpions climbing up the outside of the pyramid walls.
And the gigantic Eye of Horus at the top - this is exactly the sort of toys we need for our little one.
You can't teach them symbols of divine protection early enough.
