I bought this for my son. Despite my pleas that he does not pursue a police career, he is somewhat fascinated with all things blue lights and exciting. I am not a villain or protester, but a serving police officer.
It took a while for me to put the set together and so by the time it was done, he had lost interest and returned to the land of the living dead. Those who have sons know that I refer to the seat right in front of a PlayStation.
It mattered not. I occupied the next hour arranging the figures in comical poses and after taking some photos, tagging my colleagues on Facebook! When people started mentioning complaints and discipline, our merry and mirth came to an abrupt end, but my Playmobil joy continued in the privacy of my own home.
Since this time, the Playmobil headquarters has seen the slaying of the former Cheif Constable, Teresa May and an obnoxious PC. Occupational Health have cleared this activity in the name of stress release, and are considering purchasing 45 of these sets for officers currently rocking in chairs.
My son? Yes he still plays with this set often, and as an educational tool it has highlighted to him the ratio of meetings that I attend as opposed to genuine emergencies.
He is now considering a career as a vet.
