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 5th

Knight's Duel: Barrel Table
Brian's take: Ethan Allan's rolling in his grave. It's a fucking hobo table! Do you remember the episodes of Fat Albert where they went back to the clubhouse to watch the Brown Hornet? I distinctly remember seeing this exact "table" there. How disappointing.

Unicorn Paradise: a girl in a pink dress.
Jeanne's take: Hey! A real Playmobil person! Awesome! I think this may end up being a princess eventually, but for the moment I'm going to give her some swords.

And then suddenly, it was Donkey Kong gone horribly wrong...

[Dramatization by Brian.]

Which do you prefer?

The Donkey Kong visual makes it all worthwhile.
