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 13th

Knight's Duel: Dog!
Brian's take: The best friend of man and Playmobil figure alike! Notice the loin and chuck cuts marked on its body. Yum!

Unicorn Paradise: Peacock fountain topper.
Jeanne's take: Brian tells me there's a Dario Argento film titled "Bird With the Crystal Plumage." I asked if the bird goes bonkers and kills everyone, but sadly that's not the case. (Incidentally, maybe this fountain IS a birdbath in disguise after all. Hey, there's a film title: Birdbath Bloodbath! Muhahaha!)

Fountain and Dog, a pastoral scene.

Which do you prefer?
