ThinkGeek has proudly introduced the Playmobil Apple Store Playset. Kids, make sure this gets on your Christmas Wish List right away!
“Stylish technology nuggets made by Apple… we just can’t seem to get enough. From iPod, to MacBook, to iPhone, to iPad. Even if we laugh our way through the announcement, thinking we’ll “never buy an overgrown iPhone”… it happens again.
So when we spotted this amazing Apple Store Playset from PLAYMOBIL we were admittedly in a bit of a conundrum. On the one hand, it’s a product designed for children much younger than ourselves. On the other hand, it’s a tiny representation of the store which sells us all the shiny Apple goodies we can’t resist. Then we noticed that the PLAYMOBIL iStore includes amazingly tiny iPhones, Macbooks, and iPads. Our resolve began to waver. A quick peek at the miniature Genius Bar and we were feeling a bit woozy. Then we saw the tiny Steve Jobs presenting in the Keynote Theater on the top floor and that was it. Our wallets popped out faster than you can say Jonathan Ive and we plunked down whatever money was needed to own this amazing playset.
Of course, once we had the playset, we had to get the optional Line Pack to simulate our own exciting Apple product launches. Since it comes with a tiny Woz on a tiny Segway, it was a no-brainer. We decided that Apple & PLAYMOBIL together is the most unlikely and awesome collaboration ever. It changes everything.
Snag the PLAYMOBIL Apple Store “for the kids” then whisk it away to your office and set it on display. Over lunch, a bunch of us at ThinkGeek HQ get together and play Apple Store. Christian always gets to be Steve Jobs… damn it!”
The fine print:
Check the date. (But OH the cute details! Do we see tiny little Twelve South products in there somewhere? Of course we do.)
