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 9th

Knight's Duel: assorted arms.
Brian's take: An arsenal fit for an RPG geek! From left to right we have a bec de corbin, a broadsword, a lucern hammer (aka a pole axe), and finally, the trusty battle axe. And they said D&D would never serve any purpose in my life! Pah, I say! Any one of these fine weapons would look great buried in your enemy's skull.

Unicorn Paradise: Peacock.
Jeanne's take: Aha! This is a much better peacock than the submissive one of a few days ago. The bird obsession continues. By the way, check out the giant feet on this peacock. Wow.

The bec de paon meets the bec de corbin!

Which do you prefer?

Methinks the boys are supposed to behead the proud peacock. Another metaphor....

Both of these toys certainly embody the christmas spirit....
