You're almost out of time. Play with this.

While doing Christmakuh shopping last night, I saw this in the store.

Does anyone else think it needs a better name?

Unfortunate product naming. Where's the TSA Screener? Maybe there's a strip-search add-on available from the company website.

I think only someone in the medical profession would make that connection!

Well, it is called a terminal.

They put the wrong toys in that box. "Terminal playset" should be an ICU, with a ventilator, and a neurologist action figure. Accessories include a bright flashlight, a safety pin, and a syringe full of cold water. It would be really cool if the neurologist action figure was a bobble-head, with moving eyes.

not a gift for make-a-wish. and i think it is more of a lay term than one used by health care professionals.

Hmmm, nope! That name is perfect!

"Airport" or "Concourse" probably would have been better ... but I suppose it is called an airport terminal...

Yes, it does need a new name. Too funny. Christmakuh, however, is great! I had some friends in college who had a Jewish father and a Episcopalian mother. Every year we'd all show up at their house where we would gather around the tree and eat cookies with the Star of David on them.

Considering all the little bits in it, I think the name is appropriate.

Actually, that would be a good name for "Operation."

Bombing Beirut?

"Terminal Playset: When you're hoping they won't make it to four."

Maybe they mean the playset itself won't last very long. Which in my household it probably wouldn't.

Reminds me of a memo many years ago in a hospital concerning a new computerized patiant scheduling system for the radiation therapy department:

Please refrain from refering to the computer input devices as
"Terminals".

Where is the Dr Kavorkian Action Figure?!

But why buy a new one when there are so many used ones on eBay?

Crazed Nitwit said...

Bwahahahahaha. Thanks for the giggle!!

KMC said...

That is hilarious. That's almost as good as the "Barbie loves Woody" doll from Toy Story 3

The Mother said...

It is, obviously, the last playset you will ever need.

Bulrush said...

Complete with lead paint and asbestos!

I've never laughed so hard at comments in my life. Thanks for the fun!

Is "terminal playset" an new euphemism for "choking hazard"?

My hubby grew up in a town whose downtown included the "Terminal Drugstore" -- right next to the train station, 'natch.

most 3 yr olds can't read, so do not stress about the package or what it is called.
