Playmobil Advent Calendar Competition

The Spooky Librarians have two advent calendars this year: the "Knight's Duel," aimed at boys, and the "Unicorn Paradise," geared toward girls. We're going to look at each day's offering and compare and contrast. Join us and vote for your favorite, won't you?

December 2nd

Unicorn Paradise: A parrot.
Jeanne's take: Well. This was anticlimactic. Nothing to put together, just a parrot to put in yesterday's birdcage. Yep. There it is! (For a parrot, it's pretty, though.)

Knight's Duel: a firepit.
Brian's take: A freakin' firepit? That's it? (A two-piece firepit, by the way.) My first reaction was "what the heck am I supposed to do with this?" Then the answer became obvious...

Parrot Flambe! Yum!

Which do you prefer?

How telling. Wow. "Girls, BE PASSIVE! You are nothing more than pretty parrots trapped in gilded cages. Please don't think, just mimic! Don't go out and find your own way to support yourself, just squawk, "Polly wanna a cracker!" and hope your needs will be met.

Boys! BE ACTIVE! Go out and find your own sustenance, create! Create fire! Change the world to suit your needs, if that entails roasting a parrot, so be it!

I agree with both of you. :)

A few years ago we had a LEGO advent calendar and it was awesome. These are a lot...weirder.
