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 4th

Knight's Duel: two swords and a flanged mace.
Brian's take: Rock on! I can feel my inner Manowar surging forth as I lift my tiny broadsword and miniscule mace! (Insert bad innuendo here.) Oh, the glorious skulls we can crush! Merry Christmas, everyone! Number of parts: 3. Assembly required: None!

Unicorn Paradise: two rose trellises.
Jeanne's take: While the boys are stabbing and flailing away, the girls will be painstakingly assembling this 36-PIECE ITEM. Yes, really. Thirty-six pieces. I mean, it's pretty and all, and you can put the flowers in any arrangement you want. I should try to have them spell something.

The lesson here: never let a boy trim your rose bush, girls. (Hee.)

Which one do you prefer?

Everything in my world revolves around genitalia. Boys have swords and girls have delicate flowers. Hmmmm.....
