Smile and Nod: More Pictures that Speak for Themselves

I mean, not that I’m going to let the fact that they do speak for themselves stop me from having my say…

I noticed this toy while looking at Playmobil for my son. I love Playmobil. I understand that they have a worldwide market, and perhaps there are countries and/or communities where children pine for toy port-a-potties to supplement their budding sense of bathroom humor.


Still, I noticed that this toy is sold not as part of a larger set, but as a stand alone plaything. I’d understand needing a port-a-potty for a rock concert Playmobil set or street festival Playmobil set, or even as as an accessory for a construction site set. But who decided enough children would want to buy this separately to make it worth producing? And let’s not even begin to think about why they would need a wheelbarrow:

This is my favorite coffee mug. It’s true that it can’t always be true, but I find “smile and nod, smile and nod” definitely has it's purposes:

This is exactly the type of thing I’d bring my kids to on vacation. Aren’t you glad you’re not my kid?

According to the truck owner, this is what retired plumbers do with themselves after moving to Florida. Maybe he’s the target market for the Playmobil port-a-potty set?!?

LOL!!! What a fun entry! Here's a funny thing: I showed my 5 yr old ds the porta-potty and he LOVED it! Then again, this reaction came from the same kid who right now is fascinated with all things bathroom-related....

That port-a-potty is hilarious! For the kid who has everything. LOL! Actually I went along on my daughter's kindergarten field trip to the farm today and my group was almost as fascinated with the port-a-potty as they were with the animals! I guess brio is on to something!
