Learning From Toys

I'm fascinated by some of the toys and collectibles that have emerged after September 11. Here's yet another innocent childhood toy from Playmobil, a security check in (here's another image in case the previous one doesn't work), complete with conveyor belt to screen luggage and a metal detector (via Metafilter).

That's one of the creepiest things I've ever seen. Today.

Yeah, I found the police officer particularly creepy for some reason.

What's next, little plastic dolls doing cavity searches?

Did anyone see the Malcolm in the Middle episode where Dewey and his dad create a hugh city, and then Dewey turns it into a fascist society with rows upon rows of uniform little people? Someone must not have realised that it was a joke.
