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 15th

Knight's Duel: Falcon with hood.
Brian's take: The hood is used to keep the falcon calm when there are lots of people bustling about. I need one of these for when I go to the grocery store.

Unicorn Paradise: Girl
Jeanne's take: I'm always happy to get an actual figure. I also have to give Playmobil some credit here for having a figure which is dark-haired and dark-eyed, as opposed to the blondness they usually have. (This girl has long black hair in a braid down her back.) I am, however, concerned about her choice of red shoes with a pink and white polka-dotted dress.

You'd think the falcon would fit on the figure's arms, but no! (We checked with the boy figure, too, but it doesn't fit there either.)

Which do you prefer?
