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 11th

Knight's Duel: Coffer with coins.
Brian's take: A king's coffer! Huzzah! (There are so many coins they don't all fit in the chest, which makes for a lot of tiny pieces being dropped on the floor.)

Unicorn Paradise: Rose Trellis.
Jeanne's take: Oops, I screwed up. Remember the rose trellises of Dec . 4? There was only supposed to be one on that day, and this is the second. So, anyway. A rose trellis! With individual flowers! Pretty!

Flowers and coins. This looks like something out of a tarot card spread.

Which do you prefer?

Call me a humorless bitch if you must, but this calendar …this calendar! Uh, the boys get gold, the girls flowers? The female sex is being shortchanged, literally and figuratively.
