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 17th

Knight's Duel: Barding for the horse.
Brian's take: Have you ever eaten at Medieval Times? If so, you've noticed horses have these colorful tapestries over them so you know which one to root for. Get filthy drunk on homemade mead and shake your turkey leg in delight and dismay as your knight battles it out in the dirt arena below! Huzzah!

Unicorn Paradise: Girl Figure.
Jeanne's take: Hey, another figurine! I have a sneaking suspicion that accessories will be imminent.

Brian calls this "Poison Ivy Takes On Bathorse With a Sword." Please note the defeated squire in the background.

Which do you prefer?
